The official stuff
Inspired by gin-making principles, ‘First Light’ is a bold and refreshing non-alcoholic spirit, with classic flavours of dry juniper, bright citrus and zesty ginger to create an outstanding spectrum of flavour. ‘First Light’ is crafted by distilling a combination of rich Macedonian juniper berries, zesty ginger and warm habanero capsicum to create a full-bodied base spirit. This is then blended with botanical distillates and extracts from a further 15 carefully selected botanicals including orange, sage, cardamom, cascarilla bark and lemongrass, each perfectly complementing each other to provide a complex and layered spectrum of flavour.

Why it's worthy
We think this is the closest anyone has got to the taste of a gin, without the alcohol.
What you'll taste
Full of gin-like character: lemon, juniper, wood and fresh herbs, especially rosemary, with a touch of sea salt at the end.
The perfect pairing
Ice and tonic. First Light is quite lemony already, so you could add a slice of orange or grapefruit, or a sprig of herbs.
The pleasant surprise
New London Light is produced by the distillers at Salcombe Gin.
