Ros Nelmes

Fordington Gin

After ordering a G&T in a local bar Ros was more than a little bit disappointed with what she was served; her drink arrived in a toothbrush style tumbler – fresh from the dishwasher, still hot and rapidly melting the single ice cube…a soggy bit of lemon from a dish of stale water, a shot of gin and a squirt of tonic from the bar hose. Ros knew that Gin deserved much better than this…and so the Fordington Gin journey began!

Ros Nelmes, creator of Fordington Gin is passionate about her product and about her home in Dorset. Dorset is peppered with some of the most exceptional food and drink producers in the country, from its rolling green hills to its majestic Jurassic coastline and Ros is a great advocate of local!

Having an extensive knowledge of the world of gin, Ros talks on the history and making of gin over the decades on a regular basis. She also sells Fordington Gin online at, at selected outlets and various fairs and markets across the West Country.
