About This Gin

Manchester Gin is a small batch gin that is lovingly made by hand – filling, capping, labelling and writing every single bottle themselves. The company aren’t joking when they say ‘it’s truly a labour of love in every sense of the word’, and this definitely comes across. The company stayed true to themselves by creating a gin that THEY would want to drink and were actually inspired by their favourite childhood drink as the gin’s main two botanicals are Dandelion and Burdock Root. 

Our Opinion

We first tried this gin whilst at Forum Cafe and Bar in Sheffield, making some tough life decisions. Garnished with freeze dried raspberries (exactly just like the ones in Special K Red Berries), it was the perfect drink for our reflective evening. We’re not sure if it is due to the circumstances in which we tried it, but this has firmly become one of our favourites.  The taste is so refreshing, and definitely moreish!

This would be so perfect with Prosecco for the ULTIMATE celebration – A is ordering a bottle for the next girls night!

About This Gin

Masons Yorkshire Gin pride themselves on creating spirits that they would want to drink themselves, they also wanted to ensure that their products are those that their namesake county would be proud of. A small distilling process, good old Yorkshire water, and the perfect amount of juniper what the brand believes is special about their gin – the first gin to be distilled in Yorkshire.

Our Opinion

Whilst being big tea drinkers (although divided on our brand preferences), we were still slightly sceptical about whether Masons’ Yorkshire Tea Gin would, well, work. But it really does… The flavour is surprisingly smooth and the slight bitter undertone is warming almost, making this gin delightfully easy to drink. Yorkshire folk are fiercely proud of the county, and rightly so. Masons’ Yorkshire Tea Gin not only does its’ namesake justice, but is a gin of which locals would also be fiercely proud.

Our Opinion

Lavender is normally a major turn off; it reminds us of those embroidered pillows that B&B’ owners believe hides the fusty smell in their tired bedrooms and Earl Grey is quite frankly the work of the devil. But this blend of botanicals is a delight. The flavour is distinctive, yet perfectly subtle. and the fragrance don’t hit you like you’re being forced to drink your grandma’s cheap perfume. Instead, this gin is light, sweet, and is so perfectly floral that any summer evening without a glass in hand should be considered a crime. What a turn out for the books.

About This Gin

Monkey 47 is distilled down the Black Forest and, as the name suggests, contains a staggering 47 botanicals. Alongside, the usual culprits, Monkey 47 contains something a bit different- cranberries. 

Our Opinion

If we were going to sum this gin up in one word, it would be powerful. In fact, the unassuming monkey on the bottle gives rather the wrong impression about the ferocity of its’ flavour. When we have a bottle of this in the cupboard, we always opt for a Martini, but it could certainly be enjoyed conventionally with a tonic.
