Hoxton Gin gives a thoughtful warning to all gin purists in the world by saying: "Warning: contains coconut and grapefruit."
This is not to suggest that this is a flavored gin but rather that it contains some unusual botanicals that separate it from a traditional dry gin. It is the creation of Gerry Calabrese, owner of the Hoxton Pony bar, who wanted to make something fun and different. In addition to grapefruit and coconut, it also claims to include iris and tarragon. They are a bit coy about the source of the alcohol, saying only it comes from "the world's leading microdistiller" from a base of French summer wheat. The alcohol is given a maceration (immersion) of the botanicals for 5 days, followed by a resting period of 2 months in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling. They suggest serving in a Naked Martini cocktail: from the freezer to the glass.
Note: the bottling proof of the gin was changed from 86 to 80 in 2016.
