Bishop’s gin, it all started
with the Bishop.

Bishop’s Gin is inspired by the unconventional legacy of 16th century English reformer and humanist, Bishop John Ponet.

As well as being the Bishop of Winchester, John was an outspoken resistance theorist and fought for the right of clergy to marry.

His writings were forward thinking and controversial to his peers and when “Bloody Mary” came to the English throne, the Bishop was exiled to Europe where he took a wife and had children. He died in France in 1556.

Influenced by his innovative thinking, his descendants, created the Ponet Distillery in 1763 in Belgium, making genever for nearly 200 years. In 2015 Thierry Ponet decided to revive the brand with Ponet Spirits.

Using details from the Tudorian artistic period, the label shows the links between the genever tradition in the Lowlands and the English tradition of gin distillation.

Crafted and distilled as an ode to the unconventional, Bishop’s Gin toasts to the memory of John Ponet and all those who dare to look beyond the normal.
 

The Exceptional
London Dry.

Bishop’s Gin is full of natural ingredients to deliver the exceptional London Dry. It comprises nine of the finest botanicals including the subtle, peppery nasturtium flower. It beautifully balances juniper with citrus, spicy and sweet notes - sweeping the tongue with sweet liquorice before a burst of fresh, tangy lemon and juniper excite the taste buds. The light peppery nasturtium flower combines with almonds for a truly delicate sweet finish.

This marriage of spicy and floral flavours makes Bishop’s Gin wonderfully versatile. Its distinct quality means it is marvelous when savoured on its own but also deliciously responsive to cocktails.

Crafted and distilled as an ode to the unconventional, Bishop’s Gin toasts to the memory of John Ponet and all those who dare to look beyond the normal.

Bishop’s Gin
Marmalade

The edition of the Bishop’s Marmalade Gin is an artisanal tribute to the craftsmanship of British savoir-faire.

Infused with traditionally made, organic orange marmalade, it embodies in a 50 cl bottle the ethos of Ponet Spirits, Artisan Spirit Makers.

On the nose, an impression of sweetness dominates, reminiscent of the delicacy of candied oranges. The fat, almost resinous gin dances with the delicacy of the Sicilian orange.

On the palate the slowly candied orange becomes obvious.
The subtle pepperiness of the Bishop’s Gin, ignites this unique meeting between London Dry and marmalade to offer us a unique liquor.
