Borne from a mother’s love and her son’s penchant for jelly, this Tangerine London Dry Gin has been 'soothed and smoothed' as liltingly as Dean Friedman’s 80’s hit ‘Lydia, Lydia'.
Dilly Dilly Distiller David Anderson says 'The inspiration for this Gin was my beautiful Mum, we were so incredibly close. She would make a trifle every week and my sister and I would steal the jelly cubes so she always bought an extra tangerine jelly for us which was our favourite. In the 80’s there was a song by Dean Friedman with the opening line ‘Lydia, Lydia,’. I used to sing it to my mum whenever I was in trouble and she would say that she could never be cross with me for long.
It's perfect timing and something of a tribute to my Mum that we managed to launch this new Gin just in time for Mothering Sunday 22nd March 2020.'
