About This Gin

The humble beginnings of this gin make for an interesting story. It’s creator was a keen home-made spirit maker, with things like sloe gins and the like. After realising beer and wine did not agree with him, he began experimenting with all kinds of different fruit and concluded raspberry gave the best flavour. He recruited one of the oldest distillers, bringing their own knowledge and expertise, and the rest they say, it history. (They even sell their used raspberries as ‘Boozy Berries’ – what a great idea!)

Our Opinion

We discovered this gin, in a small tapas and gin bar called Trippets in Sheffield. It was one of the first flavoured gins we tried, and we are big fan favourites of this gin. It’s wonderfully sweet flavour impresses, and the choice of the humble raspberry is spot on! Its good enough to convert any naysayer to further explore flavoured gins.

About This Gin

A strikingly flavourful gin with botanicals including pink peppercorns, tonka, vanilla and honey, it was creating to push the boundaries of modern day gin, and defy the norms. This elegant gin takes months to create, carefully distilling in glass stills, all with locally sourced ingredients.

Our Opinion

This gin really packs a punch. After a bit of a bar crawl, we arrived in The Beer Engine, Sheffield, and the striking bottle caught our eye. It sounded appealing, and it certainly tasted unusual. The pepper is instantly noticeable, but thanks to the smoother ingredients, is not over-powering – it’s certainly very well balanced.

About This Gin

According to their website it took 9 months of experimentation, and many different combinations of botanicals until they settled on their final 9. All the classic ones you’d expect to see are there: Juniper, Angelica, Coriander…

Our Opinion

Enjoyed with a slice of grapefruit and some standard tonic water, this gin holds a classic flavour, you’ll taste nothing new here! It’s nice enough, nothing particularly special or unusual to see here though!

About This Gin

Originating in Seville in 2001, this gin is distilled using the classic copper stills, and a wood fire. The strawberry element of this gin comes from Huelva, where the strawberries are known for their incredible flavour and quality. Usually served with cut strawberries, it goes perfectly with either tonic water or lemonade.

Our Opinion

This was another of our early flavoured gin trials, in fact, it was D’s first meal with A’s parents! This gin has a lovely flavour, there’s just enough strawberry to be tasted, but not too much so that it’s overpowering. The excellent flavour was even felt through all the nerves and tension at the dinner table that evening. This is the perfect gin for a refreshing summer tipple! Highly recommended.

About This Gin

Surprisingly, this gin is from Plymouth, England, but it’s location is far more interesting than that. Boasting the oldest working gin distillery in England, this classically flavoured gin is a firm favourite throughout many bars and supermarkets. This ancient gin has been using the same combination of botanicals and soft Dartmoor water since 1793.

Our Opinion

Being suckers for a bargain, this was always a go-to choice when on offer in the local supermarket. To us, it was always regarded as a higher quality gin than that of the other supermarket favourites. Its nicer tasting, easier to drink, and has far more about it.
