1. Hernö Dry Gin 500ml
Category: London Dry Gin
Shy on the nose at first, but then come hints of citrus, rosehip, hay, a little honey, and coriander. The palate brings warm spices, sweet liquorice, juniper and orange marmalade. Citrus notes in the finish. A delicate, well-balanced and refined gin.
2. Darnley's Spiced Gin 700ml
London Dry Gin
"Juniper, oriental spices and orange blossom on the nose. On the palate there are notes of orange citrus, green herbs, and a hot pepperiness. The finish brings hints of sweet liquorice. Overall well rounded.
3. City Of London Old Tom Gin 700ml
Old Tom Gin
"Juniper, citrus, and pine on the nose. The palate is classic and clean, with juniper, some sweetness, and a good balance of flavours. Lemon wax and bitterness are also present.
5. Rock Rose Navy Strength Gin
"Good peppery complexity here, with orris and angelica root coming through on the palate. It’s hot and spicy but with a nice smooth alcohol element. There are some sweet notes, and some juniper and spice that opens up with some water.
6. Four Pillars Olive Branch Gin
World's Best Signature Botanical
"This has an interesting aroma, with juniper, a little lemon and some green notes. The olive leaf character is much more pronounced on the palate; it is oily and pleasant and brings a touch of umami flavour. Very satisfying."
7. Never Never Southern Strength Gin
"Resinous juniper and pine in the front, with some citrus just behind. With added water it opens up and more juniper appears on the palate. Citrusy, piney, with an everlasting finish.
8. Lawrenny Van Diemen's Gin
Contemporary Style Gin, Silver, 2021
"Heavy savoury nose with tomato and some kind of succulent leaves, plus dusty spic. The palate is dark, but hefty and quite evolving, with spices and fruit.
"A very fresh nose with orange citrus, juniper, and hints of rosemary and cloves. Dry and herbal on the palate, with lots of juniper and citrus. Well balanced sweetness and hints of aniseed in the finish.
