This is a ‘Gemma Gin’ there is no doubt Hendricks has spearheaded gins resurgence from the early 2000’s. Regardless of whether the cucumber flavour is distinct of the other 12 botanicals in Hendricks, the addition of it certainly adds a fresh quality to the spirit and drying finish.
This gin is dry and spicy, big on nutmeg, cassia and coriander seeds. It leaves you a cracked pepper-like finish. This is a popular bold and punchy gin that works hard to take your stress away…
One for our ‘Yorkshire lass Ma’ Botanicals include juniper, coriander, angelica root, bilberries, hawthorne berries, bog myrtle and thyme. Whittaker’s is a spicy and creamy with tart and savoury edges. Just the way our ‘ma’ likes her G&T!
Made in the UK inspired by Africa. Whitley Neill is slightly softer than more traditional gins and very smooth with rich juniper and citrus, pot pourri and exotic spices. The finish is a long one with a subtle fade of herbs, cocoa and candied lemon peels.
And finally…the legend, the ‘Gin Father’ that is…
Garnish: Lemon or Lime.
The Spirit of Gin believe if it wasn’t for Gordon’s beginning their journey some 250 years ago, many of the above gins would not even be on our radar. So for that Alexander Gordon…we salute you! It’s no fluke Gordon’s Gin is still one the world’s favourite and bestselling gin and remains an iconic brand in most households, sitting pretty with its green glass bottle and boar head trademark. The success of this gin lays in the perfect combination of pure distilled grain spirit and rich botanicals, with a clean, juniper dominant taste.
