22 Yards, London Dry Gin
In 2018, Sir Ian launched his first range of wines bearing his name. In less than a year, the range has collected 6 international wine awards and Sir Ian has been praised as an accomplished winemaker in his own right. During the development of the wine range, Sir Ian was determined to also turn his hand to making his other favourite tipple, Gin.
Working alongside Master Gin Distiller, Deirdre Bohane, at the renowned distillery, West Cork Distillers in Ireland, Sir Ian and gin experts in his own family, worked meticulously to create their perfect blend.
22 Yards is well known in the cricketing world as the length of the pitch that the magnificent game is played on. Games are won or lost depending on how the ball travels that short but highly significant distance. Having taken some 1,700 wickets in his professional career, Sir Ian knows this only too well! We firmly believe it was fate that having spent a career thinking about 22 yards, it took 22 months to create and perfect this first, small batch London Dry Gin release and as a result, we couldn’t think of a more apt name to give it!
