Urban Rhino London Dry Gin is made to a simple and refined recipe of just six botanicals — juniper, lemon peel, coriander seed, orris root, cassia bark and liquorice root.
It is distilled in the multi-award-winning Henley Distillery.
Rhino populations are at a tipping point after 16 years of senseless poaching has decimated populations. With more than 12,000 white and black rhinos poached in South Africa and more than 500 rangers gunned down across the continent, up to two rhinos are still poached EVERY DAY! We are still fighting a war.
Urban Rhino supports Waterberg Rhino UK (charity no 1187429) which was set up in January 2020 to raise funds and awareness to help protect the rhino population of the Waterberg area of South Africa, including the protection of other species of wildlife and habitat that are part of the overall environment.

The world’s first specialised rhino orphanage was founded in 2012 when the rhino poaching crisis was at its height. Since then it has saved scores of orphaned babies and continues to be at the forefront of the battle to save the species. Our owner Pete Richardson is a co-founder and still a director of The Rhino Orphanage.
Rhino horn has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for several thousand years claimed to be a cure for a range of ailments. But in recent years the demand has spiked across many Asian markets not only as a cure but also as tragically as a status symbol. And increased demand = increased rhino deaths. The real tragedy is that rhino horn is made of the same protein as our own fingernails (Keratin).
There are just five species of rhino left on our planet – and it’s shocking how few of each there are:
White rhino – 16,802
Black rhino – 6,487
Greater one-horned rhino (Indian) – 4,018
Javan rhino – 76
Sumatran rhino - 34-47
Situated in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, the Waterberg is known for its spectacular landscape and rich diversity of wildlife, and is a popular safari destination – it’s also home to the second largest population of rhino in South Africa. A unique wilderness area, it is awarded the status of a World Biosphere reserve by UNESCO as the only savannah biosphere in the world. A place to be protected.
Our recipe naturally uses Urban Rhino Gin as the base, to create a refreshing take on a classic. Our addition of Grapefruit Bitters and rosemary complements the citrus in our gin perfectly.
