The longtooth story


The premium distilled London Dry Gin is back

Bengal Gin™ was THE gin to drink back in the 60's. Export strength and purr...fect for a Martini, it was one of the most distinctive and super cool brands of the decade. Longtooth is a faithful recreation of this once revered spirit. Smooth, strong and impeccably bred, it’s made with only the finest ingredients, to a recipe created by one of the most respected Master Distillers in the world.

The spirit of an age

The Sixties have been described as the decade that produced some of the most significant developments in history. For the first time in the 20th-century London, not Paris, was the centre of the creative world. The British invasion didn’t stop with The Beatles. It swept into all parts of life, from design to architecture and art. The names on everyone’s lips were Jean Shrimpton, David Bailey, Mary Quant and Ian Fleming. The brands were Aston Martin, Harper’s Bazaar and Bengal Gin™.

At the height of its glory in the late 50s and 60s, only one gin could be used for the famous Maneater Martini - supremely smooth Bengal Gin™.

That was then - this is now

Fast-forward half a century and this 1960’s icon became the blueprint for a new London Dry gin - Longtooth. Developed by the creator of some of the world’s most successful and exclusive gin flavours, Longtooth has all the essence and integrity of the original Bengal Gin, revived and reimagined for the contemporary connoisseur.

A supremely smooth classic flavour profile

A blend of 12 carefully chosen, ethically sourced botanicals on a classic juniper base, it is a supremely smooth spirit with a pinnacle gin taste. Crafted by experts with spice builds of cassia, cinnamon and chicory and a finish of mustard seeds, Longtooth is a superior, signature gin to be taken with a sprig of rosemary and, if you wish, a splash of tonic. Alternatively, let it loose on that definitive 1960s cocktail, the Maneater Martini.
