At projectfive, we have three core values: help people, make friends, and stand out.
And it was that last value – to do things differently – that led us to win the award for the UK’s best ‘Outsourced IT Support Company’ at the National Technology Awards.
To celebrate this milestone in true projectfive style, we decided to do something a little different, and commissioned a bespoke, hand-produced gin from a local distillery to commemorate the win!
Mews Gin Company is a small-batch artisan gin distiller based in the heart of the Surrey countryside. As a local business, they were an obvious choice for us to partner with to create login.
The father and son team use the vapour distillation method to produce bespoke London Gin. The ‘still’ used to make the gin – affectionately named “Betty” – was handmade by a Surrey-based firm, which have been producing stills for over 180 years.
Using a combination of 11 different botanicals, login offers you a gin that is light, smooth and full of flavour.
Each bottle has been hand produced, from the adding of the botanicals through to the bespoke orange wax and label.

Before you start…take a sharp knife and run it round the lid to make a clean cut in the wax seal.
login is light and full of flavour, and works well with a quality tonic water.
The unique addition of pink peppercorns into the botanical mix, provides a subtle taste with a hint of sweetness.
Why not try it with a slice of lime or even a slice of cucumber – although cucumber can have a surprisingly strong taste, so go easy!
A personal favourite is some blueberries on a cocktail stick with a dash of bitters – crisp and refreshing.
