Langleys No.8 is a unique gin made with our own secret blend of 8 botanicals, harvested at their freshest. It is hand crafted & distilled in a small English-produced pot still. Blended by expert craftsmen with 100% English Grain Spirit and delivers a smooth, rounded finish with just the right balance of alcohol.
Langleys No.8 has been painstakingly developed to deliver the perfect G&T and delivers equally well with all tonic waters. The blend & split of the 8 botanicals, English Grain Spirit and the strength at 41.7% ABV allows the classic gin flavours to come through, whilst still allowing the right level of quinine/tonic flavour.
A perfectly balanced gin of classic taste - what better for the most quintessentially English of drinks, the Gin & Tonic.
|A traditional distilled London gin from Langley's, focusing on a dryer and more focused flavour than many modern releases. Using classic botanicals it is distilled at their distillery in the West Midlands. The 'No.8' comes from the final 41.7% version being the 8th that they tried - their perfect balance of botanical flavour.

Though the aroma is mild, almost neutral, on the palate this gin has a concentrated, robust licorice profile that fades into an earthy note before finishing crisp and brisk. - K.N.
|THE ULTIMATE G&T

Fresh lime cut into wedges
The perfect G&T is a classic creation and the right ingredients are vital.
Start with a chilled highball glass and fill it with ice cubes. Pour 50ml of Langley’sŪ No.8 over the ice and listen to the crack, then top up with fresh, fizzing, sparkling tonic. Take a wedge of lime, gently squeeze a little of its juice into the glass then drop the whole wedge in. One final stir and you have the definitive G&T. Savour and enjoy!
