Thomas Greenall founded Greenalls in 1762 – at a time when London’s Marylebone Pleasure Gardens were in full swing. Then, in the 1830s, a Liverpudlian solicitor named John fell in love with Isabella, the daughter of Thomas. They married, and John began working for Greenalls. Turned out distilling was in his blood, as it has proved to be for his son, his grandson…all the way down through eight generations to Johnny Neill, who carries the family torch forward today.
One of the most famous of all was close by the Rose of Normandy Tavern on the east side of what is now Marylebone High Street. Called the Marylebone Pleasure Gardens, it was the place to see and be seen throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. Rumour has it that Dick Turpin – highwayman, horse thief and folk hero – was no stranger to the gardens.
The unique, balanced flavour and aroma of Marylebone Gin derives from our use of the purest grain spirit and our careful selection of the finest botanicals from around the globe. This mix of 13 different botanicals has helped create a gin worthy of winning double gold at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018.
