Hampton Court Gin

Lord Of Misrule


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 rich and silky smooth yet curiously spicy craft gin, Proud winner of the Master Award at The Global Gin Masters 2022.

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.
