The Seven Deadly Gins

According to Black Horse tradition the seven deadly gins are: envy, gluttony, greed or avarice, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. You can find a list and meanings and flavours of the seven deadly gins below.

As a new edition to the Morality Gin, Black Horse has developed these seven amazing gins that are a must have in any serious gin collectors collection. 

All our lables are inspired by Pieter Bruegel the Elder,  Pieter was the most significant artist of Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting, a painter and printmaker from Brabant, known for his landscapes and peasant scenes.

Pieter Bruegel I (ca. 1525–1569), commonly known as Pieter Bruegel the Elder, was the greatest member of a large and important southern Netherlandish family of artists active for four generations in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A longtime resident of Antwerp, the center of publishing in the Netherlands and a vibrant commercial capital, Bruegel brought a humanizing spirit to traditional subjects and boldly created new ones.

He was an astoundingly inventive painter and draftsman, and, due to the continuity of the family trade and the industry that developed in prints after his works, Bruegel’s impact was widespread and long lasting. Born in or near Breda about 1525, Bruegel settled fairly early in Antwerp, where he became a master in the painters’ Guild of Saint Luke between 1551 and 1552.
