When Christian Jensen first tasted the vintage gins from London’s lost distilleries, he began a journey. Creating a finely balanced gin that honoured these forgotten recipes became his obsession. That’s why Jensen’s is distilled in small batches, using only traditional gin botanicals. So there’s really nothing new about Jensen’s, and that’s why it’s different. Distilled in Bermondsey, London, Jensen’s is gin as it was. Gin as it should be.
Bermondsey in the mid-19th Century was both a centre for trade and industry, and a notorious slum. Close to the River Thames and crammed with wharves and warehouses, it was the place where London’s food was produced and stored.
These days the warehouses are restaurants, and the weekend food markets provide delicacies for locals and visitors alike. And so Bermondsey continues its legacy as ‘London’s Larder’. Distilling our historical gins in a converted railway arch with trains thundering overhead, we’re proud to be a part of that tradition.
