Langley’s No.8 (41.7%) is an English grain spirit made with a blend of eight secret botanicals.
One could be forgiven for assuming that the drink gets its name from these eight botanicals – in fact, the number refers to the batch that was deemed the best during tasting and consumer research when the product was in development.
A well-balanced flavour with sweet, aromatic notes is bold, punchy and has a rich, spicy dryness. Works wonderfully in a martini, and tastes just as good in a G&T (try it with juniper berries as a garnish).
But don’t take my word for it, pop along to Langley’s Yard above the Crown & Shuttle pub in Shoreditch, where you can try one of their signature cocktails.
