THE CATFORD GIN TOTE BAG

OUR LABEL

Our label features the beloved and iconic Catford Cat.
It was designed by architects Owen Luder and Rodney Gordon (the pair also designed the Michael Faraday Memorial in Elephant & Castle - the big silver box in the middle of the roundabout).

It was erected in 1974 as part of the Council’s plan to make Catford a shopping, cultural and leisure destination.

It’s made up of three pieces - the body, the head and the paw and sits on two big beams which counterbalance each other - one at the front and one at the back.

It was last given a lick of paint in 2019 where there was a suggestion to repaint it ginger, which was immediately dismissed.

Our tasting notes

On the nose: juniper and citrus with a lovely richness with fresh pine and pine resin. Herbaceous notes with floral notes then follow. There’s a suggestion of sweetness reminiscent of candied citrus peel.

On the palate: dry and crisp start with a warming lifted alcohol on the mid-palate. Lovely composition of flavours in a smooth and subtle way with a peppery and oily finish.

COCKTAIL OF THE MONTH

DILL PICKLE MARTINI

Dirtier than a dirty martini, this version uses complex pickle brine rather than the simple saline olive brine. It’s a savoury bombshell for lovers of the Bloody Mary, and of course eaters of pickles.

Catford Gin is ideal in this kind of savoury cocktail and if you haven’t made one before, start out with a small amount of pickle juice – you can always add more if you think you’d like a more pronounced pickle flavour.

Ingredients:
- 60ml Catford Gin
- 25ml dry vermouth
- 15ml pickle juice, or more to taste
- 1 dill
- A pickle, to serve

Method:
- Chill a martini glass in the freezer for at least 20 minutes before beginning.
- Put the gin into the cocktail shaker, followed by the vermouth and pickle juice.
- Stir briefly and taste to see if you’d like more pickle flavour, and when you are happy with the mix, add ice cubes.
- Shake vigorously for 20 seconds or so, then strain into the prepared glass.
- Skewer the pickle with the cocktail stick or, if you prefer, just rest it in the glass so it gets nice and boozy.

Catford and proud

We are Catford and proud!
We've lived locally for 20 years and love this part of south east London we call home. What started off as a joke down the pub (catnip in a Catford gin) has become a reality.
We love Catford and we love our multi award-winning gin.
We hope you will too!
