"Think of a Jerk Watermelon - big on spice and charred in a BBQ smoker. That's this gin's core idea. Expect a charred juniper and spice profile to lead, not a fruit punch. Watermelon comes through much more with tonic and dilution."
"The ceramic bottle makes for a lovely gift, but the gin inside is what we're all here for. It's a reflection of the distillery's surrounds, allowing you the chance for a whimsical walk through the woods each and every time you pour a measure."
"Arguably one of the most underrated British Gins of all time. It just delivers every single time. The zesty lemon hit, the soft elderflower, the piny juniper, the warming spice - it's incredible distilling delivered in a lovely looking bottle."
"Hayman's London Dry is a gin that everyone should taste. Consider this one of the classic offerings that form the centre of the category. Because of its classic citrus, juniper and spice journey it's a great gin to use across any cocktail."
"Monkey 47 has transcended the category to become a cult spirit brand. While it’s well known, it is because it’s a formidable package that it’s become a global name; intricate small bottles, a whiff of crazy and a whole lot of tasty - a must try Gin."
"The dynamic nature of the team, the look of the brand and being part of the first pioneers in the new wave of craft distilling has made Four Pillars global superstars, but put all that aside for the gin and gin alone - this is a phenomenal treat."
"This is one of the category's giants. It's release was a big milestone for the category's renaissance and with fresh citrus and light florals all over the nose - easy to taste why it's so revered almost 20 years later."
"Parma Violets to look at, smell and taste - it's a Violet Gin through and through. Beyond that though, there's floral and fruity notes similar to apple, lavender and berries that might help inspire some cocktail ideas."
"Tactile bottles with embossing and wax, straight up delivery of tasty classic gin flavours and a young dynamic team who live the dream by creating spirits with real character - know that with each bottle you are supporting true Craft Distilling."
"The herbal gin that stands head and shoulders above all others in that flavour zone. The fragrant rosemary, herbaceous basil and of course black olives are so clear yet it's the juniper that they all lead towards. One of gin's must try offerings."
"Unbelievable innovation in the 'low alcohol' area! It sounds mad, but even when using the suggested 5ml with a normal amount of tonic (150ml) - flavour wise it's hard to tell the difference between this and a G&T made with the original London Dry."
"Here's some trivia for you; The name ‘Shortcross Gin’ originates from the Distillery’s local village, Crossgar. In Gaelic or Irish, Crossgar means the ‘Short Cross’. Here's a fact; The gin is fantastic, probably the best made in Ireland."
"Hernö's Old Tom takes meadowsweet and places it alongside juniper in a perfectly framed picture that evokes the Swedish countryside. It's fresh, floral, layered and has a sweetness that lingers. Devine."
"Fans of Pink Gin will love the taste of fresh strawberries, but's the no added sugar that makes this worthwhile - it just lets the ingredients do the talking without any sweetened nonsense, simply bright fruity notes all around."
"The characteristic Nordés white bottle was inspired by the traditional ceramics of Sargadelos, produced in Galicia by artisans. When in season, try it with stone fruit as a garnish in a G&T - a total game changer."
