Booth's Gin was most famously sold in distinctive hexagonal glass bottles. Its paper labelling alluded to the Red Lion distillery in Clerkenwell where the drink was originally produced, and to the heraldic crest of the Booth family.
Known as the "gentleman's gin", reputedly it was a favourite of both Queen Elizabeth II, and the Queen Mother. English novelist and critic Sir Kingsley Amis (1922–1995) favoured Booth's as a mixer for Pink Gin.
