During London’s infamous ‘Gin Craze’ of the 18th century there were over a thousand makeshift distilleries and gin shops dotted around the city. Since then, a new era of London gin-makers is bringing outstanding quality to the market. The Sacred Spirits distilleries, the first of which is located in founder Ian Hart’s home in Highgate, are the most unusual proponents of this renaissance, producing gins and more with a passion and precision that is writing a new chapter for London’s liquid history.

The Sacred story began in 2008 when the brand was founded by Ian Hart and Hilary Whitney in London. Refusing to follow the accepted norms, they created their own unique distilling process, rejecting the idea that pot distillation was the best and only way to make gin. As such, ‘Recipe Twenty Three’, the spirit that would eventually become the award-winning Sacred Gin, was the catalyst proving that vacuum distilling was a new game changing method.

Containing a dozen botanicals including juniper, cardamom, pink grapefruit and frankincense, the Sacred Gin set the tone of what was to come; ingredients curated from far and wide and hand distilled in London. The inclusion of frankincense, known in Latin as Boswellia sacra, signalled Ian’s intention to create a unique liquid, characterised by depth of flavour and otherworldly aromas. It would also become the signature ingredient for all Sacred spirits.
