"My parents loved martinis; dry… very dry, shaken… never stirred, and always garnished with a green olive. I never liked green olives; my martini just has gin. Solar Spirits London Dry Gin would definitely make my parents proud. Created with a simple recipe - juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, and lemon and lime peel (and of course, a few secret ingredients). It has the traditional juniper berry aroma and flavor, with a softer touch. Use it to make the perfect martini or perfect gin and tonic, the choice is yours! "
