I haven't tried all premium gins, but I did try a few in this price range and this is the smoothest, most balanced of all. Really good neat from the freezer, or on the rocks, but of course it works in cocktails also. Highly recommended.
Gin that tastes as gin should! Best gin i've ever tasted
Just what a Gin should be. Very easy to drink.
One of my favourite gins on the market, has lovely notes of grapefruit and anise and works wonderfully well in a G&T served with a slice of pink grapefruit. It's not a subtle gin and some people have complained that the cardamom and liquorice are a bit too forward, but I love the balance. 90/100
An excellent Martini Gin, with hints of sweet citrus (a little like Cointreau) works very well in a Martinez and similar cocktails.
