House of Macduff’s Fifty/50/Gin is, unsurprisingly, all about the number 50. The first batch was bottled at 50% ABV in these 50cl charming barrel-style bottles.
It was created by maturing half of its London dry style gin that’s in the barrel bottle you see before you in virgin oak casks for 10 years(!), before finishing the spirit for a further 10 years(!!) in ex-whisky barrels. Keeping the whole Fifty/50 thing going, they then blended this with an equal volume of unaged London dry gin.
