Gin review: Hidden Curiosites 42% abv

Hidden Curiosities gin is quite unusual for a British gin in that it uses 20 botanicals. There is always a danger in generalising, but British gins tend to weigh in under 14 botanicals, with our European friends with their aqua vita heritage at the higher end of the range when it comes to number of …

Gin Review : Hoppy Gin 41% abv

We love it when the guys from Audemus Spirits drop by. Not only are they the most lovely and fabulous chaps, they always bring a present of a new and unique ginny delight for us to try. Their latest visit was no exception and we were most intrigued when they set down a bottle of …

GIN REVIEW : THOMAS DAKIN GIN

Thomas Dakin was at the forefront of distilling ‘high quality gin’ way back in the 1760s when he started a distilling company in Warrington – that later became Greenalls.

Gin Review: Pickering’s

This weeks review is Pickering’s, who visited us during the taste of London festival and kindly brought us a bottle of their brand new, small batch gin. We think this is a great gin, and it is the first gin to be made in Edinburgh in over 150 years. It also has a great historical …

Hunters Gin review

We first came across Hunters gin  about 3 months ago. This premium gin, conceived in Cheshire is bottled at 43.3% and is based on a 300 year old recipe. We would describe this as a dry, citrus gin. We noticed quite a lot of juniper on the nose which is followed by a gentle coriander …
