The King of Soho is a boutique, independent brand that has created three glorious spirits from The King of Soho: a contemporary London Dry Gin (clad in a blue bottle) £34.95 for 70cl; a delectable Variorum Pink Gin (in a red bottle) £33.95; and a smooth Copacetic Vodka – newly available nationwide as of this Autumn (in a distinctively regal purple bottle) £34.50.

It’s the brainchild of Alex Robson, a dynamic female entrepreneur, and Howard Raymond to celebrate the Soho legacy of Howard’s famous father, Paul Raymond – the original ‘King of Soho’. The packaging design reflects the flamboyant, creative, and hedonistic spirit for which London’s Soho district is known.

Buy all three spirits from Amazon and Master of Malt and The King of Soho Gins are also available from Ocado.  These drinks also make for superb gifts as these bottles are as perfect to look at as the liquids are to sip.
