An expanding library of world gins
The Gin Archive is a web-based encyclopaedia of gin brands supported by the Wight International Collection, including rare samples such as the Cambridge Distillery Watenshi Gin and the 1495 Verbatim and Interpretatio Gins. The Archive is expanding rapidly and now holds in excess of 2,200 different gins from over 50 different countries.
The selection of gins in the Gin Archive includes Dry, Genever, Old Tom, Navy Strength, Overproof and Sloe and other Flavoured gins.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Website is still under development. We are currently adding pictures of all of the gins in the collection and basic information about each gin. This stage of the project will be completed by the end of May. We will then add more detailed descriptions and tasting notes for each of the gins – a project that will take many months. In the meantime all new Gins will be added as they are received – generally around 2-3 new gins per week.
We are indeed grateful to those persons who have made the effort to help and advise us in the process of creating this archive and to distillers and gin enthusiasts who have donated gins to the collection. Find out more about The Gin Archive, read more …
