Hampton Court Gin

Lord Of Misrule

£38.00

Lord of Misrule, is a lovingly created, small-batch, hand-crafted English Gin. 

His Lordship is now available after selling out in 2021, and winning 2 awards this year - Time & Leisure Taste February 2022 / IWSC Awards March 2022.

Inspired by Tudor traditions of mischief and mayhem, Lord of Misrule is a perfect mix of contradictions; refreshingly warming, simply complicated and delicately bold, for a silky smooth and curiously spicy gin.

Every year Henry VIII and his Nobles would appoint a Lord Of Misrule, deliberately chosen from the lower classes, reversing the position of King and servant for 12 days. His title gave him complete authority over the Court’s raucous feasts, opulent masquerades and wild partying… Culminating in the Feast of Fools. Click here for party game ideas.

Our aromatic botanicals are inspired by those that would have featured in this epic feast.  Quince. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Lemon. Mulberry. Ginger. Grains of Paradise. Cubeb Berries. Honey. Bitter Almond. Juniper.

To Serve: The rules are there are no rules, so experiment with mixers, and unusual seasonal fresh herbs, fruit and spices to garnish for a refreshing G&T all year round. We like ours with tonic or ginger ale, garnished with a shard of cinnamon, or dusting of freshly grated nutmeg, and lemon slice.
