  • Roku Gin

    70cl / 43%

    5 (9 Reviews)

    Roku Gin

    A complex Japanese gin with refreshing yuzu citrus top notes and a spicy shansho pepper twist. Roku means 'six' in Japanese and refers to the six local, seasonal botanicals which complement eight traditional gin botanicals (juniper berries, coriander, lemon peel, etc) and give this spirit a distinctly Japanese character. The Japanese botanicals are: sakura flower (cherry blossom), sakura leaf, sencha tea, gyokuro tea, sansho pepper and yuzu peel. Try serving this in a gin and tonic with a ginger garnish, which accentuates the citrus notes.

  • Hayman's Old Tom Gin 70cl

    70cl / 41.4%

    Hayman's Old Tom Gin 70cl

    New version of the old-style gin, Old Tom was a predecessor of the now-ubiquitous London Dry style. Early gin was sweetened to hide harsh impurities. Folklore has it that Old Tom gin would be served through a hole in the wall under a wooden plaque of a black cat (hence the name). The customer would put his coin in the cat's mouth and receive a shot of gin through a tube between its paws.

  • Hendrick's Orbium Gin

    70cl / 43.4%

    4.5 (13 Reviews)

    Hendrick's Orbium Gin

    The distillers who brought us Hendrick’s beloved cucumber and rose gin have hit on another great innovation: quininated gin. By infusing their spirit with quinine and wormwood, Hendrick’s have created an complex and intriguing drink that pays homage to what is often mixed with gin: tonic and vermouth. The quinine and wormwood flavours are rounded out by blue lotus blossom, which adds bright floral notes to the mix. Although it's delicious in tonic, you might also like to try Orbium with soda - which really lets the gin's flavour shine through - or in a classic cocktail such as a Martinez or Martini.
