How to reestablish an over 280 year old Gin Brand

How to reestablish an over 280 year old Gin Brand

Bacon and eggs can mean different things to different people. For cricket fans, those are the colors of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). For our guest today, they are the colors of Nicholson Gin. For historians, they are one and the same. Milo Walker, Brand Ambassador for Nicholson Gin, only discovered that his family played a part in saving Lord’s Cricket Grounds when his family reestablished the brand in 2010.

The Nicholson family had been at the helm of Nicholson Gin since it was founded in 1736,  when it grew to be one of the biggest brands in the world, until production ceased in the 1980’s. Now it’s back and in its rightly place, given its relationship with the MCC, at the bar at Lord’s again.

Try making the Nicholson Gin’s Gloom Raiser at home with this easy recipe!

Who’s on tap next:

I returned from a week in Charleston South Carolina and I made it through with a bag of grits and bourbon in tow, but not just any bourbon. Next time on Lush Life, we meet the man who knew if he were planning to make bourbon, it had to be different. Find out how he made that happen.
