London, 1743 – people rioted against a tax on gin. A riot over gin! It’s that commitment and passion that captured Jane's attention. This gin is founded on that rebellion.
Jane Walkenhorst wanted to start something… it needed to be exciting, challenging and vibrant. Her husband, who was in the wine industry suggested wine but that was his day job and she wanted something quite outside the box. Travelling the globe exploring the craft gin world and two years of research saw Riot & Rose Gin born.
Gin is exciting, challenging and vibrant. It is certainly Jane's spirit of choice and she decided to take it in her own direction. It’s a versatile spirit which can be made in different ways, take on a myriad of flavours and be mixed any number of ways. It appeals to many and she wanted to make it her own. In that spirit, she released not one, but two signature gins, “The Riot” and “The Rose”.
