THE BICKENS STORY

An elegant and refined blend

Bickens is an elegant and refined interpretation of a London Dry Gin. Born in 2012, its uniqueness is rooted in its production process and in the blend of 10 complementary botanicals selected from around the world.

Bickens is the ideal gin for the bartender who loves to experiment and prepare modern, high quality cocktails.
It is a blend that has a story to tell from the unbeatable combination of two distillates crafted in two different copper stills: Angela & Jenny, creating a marriage between tradition and contemporary distilling.

OUR PRODUCT

Quality first

The unique flavour of Bickens comes from the distillation process in the historic Langley Distillery. The distillery was founded in 1805 near Birmingham, England, in a location where three underground water sources flow together, forming a natural reservoir. This natural water source continues to contribute to the perfect conditions for high quality distilling.

It is one of the oldest family run distilleries in England, with both modern and antique copper pot stills, over a century of distilling experience, and careful attention to quality and modern tastes. These factors combine to create the unique blend that is Bickens Gin.

Six phase production process

There are six phases in the production process to create the perfect blend.

It begins with a careful selection of the botanicals, followed by the distillation of the recipes in the two pot stills. Then the two distillates are mixed to end with a marriage of flavour and dilution ready to be bottled. Meticulous attention-to-detail is paid at every stage.

Bickens London Dry Gin is bottled in a traditional and elegant style, and is available in two sizes 100 cl and 70 cl.

Bickens also offers a Premium Pink Distilled Gin giving a fresh, citrusy alternative with a touch of sweetness.

BICKENS PREMIUM PINK DISTILLED GIN

A new shade of pink

Bickens Premium Pink Distilled Gin combines the unmistakable taste of Bickens with the delightful addition of a natural grapefruit aroma.
This fresh and original version is perfect for bartenders who want to create lively cocktails with a citrus aftertaste, without losing the spicy and velvety character that distinguishes it as Bickens.

Accurate distillation in the production process is essential to achieve the right balance. The subtle taste of grapefruit is incorporated through a specifically designed mixing technique:

Ad hoc mixing, to ensure the perfect grapefruit taste;
Addition of natural grapefruit flavouring to ensure a fresh taste;
Dilution with water to bring the distillate from 80% vol. to 40% vol.;
Addition of colour and a small amount of sugar, to round the flavour;
● Bottling of the completed Distilled Gin.
