British Airways Introduces Own Exclusive Brand of Gin
British Airways has introduced its very own exclusive brand of gin which on November 23, started being served to the airline’s First customers, from the bar of the Concorde Room at Heathrow’s Terminal 5.
It has been blended for British Airways following extensive taste tests with First customers at the Concorde Room bar in London, by the award-winning Cambridge Distillery, the world’s first ‘gin tailor’.
The main botanicals used in the exclusive herbaceous gin (aside from juniper) are basil, rosemary and thyme, which are all grown in the distillery gardens in Cambridge.
A gin and tonic is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks served on British Airways flights – the airline’s customers sip more than three million of them every year.
As well as making British Airways Gin, the Cambridge Distillery also makes a blend especially for The House of Lords, which is on sale in Parliament.
