Having been out of fashion for so many years, gin is making a successful come-back on the cocktail circuit. Various innovative brands are now offering a new angle on gin's traditional flavour profile. Meanwhile, a host of new cocktails means there are far more ways to enjoy gin, beyond the ubiquitous gin and tonic. Read More »
A genever from respected Dutch distiller Zuidam, distilled on one of their traditional pot stills in small batches before being aged for a year in oak barrels. This is a very different prospect to English style gins.
A deliciously tasty gin from the highly innovative Williams Chase distillery in Herefordshire. Not content with knocking out the delightful Chase potato vodka, they've now bottled this wonderfully fresh (and pleasantly potent) gin, distilled from their own organically grown apples. Bravo!
After the roaring success of their Seville Orange vodka, here come Hereford's Williams Chase with the same formula aplied to their marvellous gin (made with organically grown apples, don't you know). An absolute joy, wonderful in G&T's and we'd wager this would make a pretty mean alternative Negroni too, perhaps with a splash of Aperol.
The first product from The London Distillery Company, started to be the capital's first whisky distillery in over 100 years. It's named for Ralph Dodd, an entrepreneur in the early 19th century who founded a similarly named but ill-fated distillery, and was first produced in early 2013 using a mixture of pot and vacuum distilled spirits.
Mare is a Mediterranean gin flavoured with four principal botanicals: basil, thyme, rosemary and, most unusual of all, the Arbequina olive. Alongside juniper, cardamom and citrus, these different botanicals create a strangely arresting gin: you'll know when you've had a Mare.
Part joke, part dissection of a gin, this is a single botanical spirit using solely juniper as a flavour. As such it's legally a gin, as well as a flavoured vodka - the folks at Williams Chase have put on two labels, one for each designation to allow you to decide which you think it is.
A young grain jenever (the literal translation of Jonge Graanjenever) from Bols, low in malt wine making it a crisper and cleaner spirit than traditional jenevers. It packaged in a beautiful Delft Blau ceramic bottle, a traditional Dutch speciality that's often used to package up special jenevers.
A small batch American gin, production is limited to 50 cases at a time and the botanicals include 'hand-zested American pummelos'. No, us neither. Answers on a postcard. Please note that the image here is representative and batch numbers may vary.
A potato based distilled gin from Maine Distilleries in the north-east of the USA. They use a very traditional botanicals mix with juniper berries, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, orris root, angelica root and cardamon, steeping them for a few hours before distillation.
