Handpicked elderflowers release a flavour like no other and it has been captured wonderfully in Edinburgh Elderflower gin. Time and effort spent perfecting the recipe delivers a clear aroma packed with floral notes, hints of pear, grapefruit and peach. Elderflower of course is prevalent throughout adding a sweet florid depth to its character and working wonderfully in any number of cocktails. The traditional flavours of gin are present but the elderflower adds something extra special.

Heralded as the world’s first gin liqueur, Hayman’s 1820 is sweet with a touch of sugar and combines the usual ten botanicals that Hayman’s favour. The regular juniper notes of gin are ever present and teamed with an additional sweetness you’d expect of a quality liqueur. The sweetness is subtler than you may expect and it finishes on a traditional gin-like note, bitter with resin and light hints of icing sugar.
The flavour of wild English sloe berries is encapsulated perfectly in Hayman’s gin. First launched in 2009, Hayman’s sloe gin has rust red hues and has a strong aroma of fresh sloes and underlying almond notes. The flavour overall is bittersweet and has a light syrupy sweetness, with strong gin notes carrying through. It ends on an intensely spiced and fruity note, with the traditional gin flavours combining with the sweet sloes.

Enjoy a special experience with Hoxton gin, however you choose to drink it.

Jindea’s other botanicals are lemon, grapefruit, coriander, ginger, fennel, cardamom, cinnamon, and angelica. Maceration lasts between three and five days, followed by pot still distillation.

To give Unicorn tears their unique taste, we humanely force-feed these beautiful beasts entire wheelbarrows of citrus fruit, oranges, juniper berries, bunches of coriander, and sticks of liquorice.

The Warner Edwards distillers in Northamptonshire have brought us another flavour of excellent gin - they have been prolific since their start in 2012. This time, they've gone regal and created Victoria's Rhubarb Gin, which uses a variety of rhubarb originally grown in Queen Victoria's garden, hence the name, as well as their Harrington Dry Gin. They also add just enough sugar to balance out the acidity from the rhubarb, producing a spirit with plenty of sweetness and some subtle, enjoyably sour notes emanate from the rhubarb.

Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin is made in a small distillery in Yarra Valley, Australia. Everything the Four Pillars distillers make is based around their four pillars - the still, the water, the botanicals and love. It's sort of a bit like the four elements of hip hop.
Pillar 1 - The Four Pillars copper-pot still is called Wilma. Pillar 2 - The water they use from Yarra Valley is triple filtered. Pillar 3 - They use some local botanicals (Tasmanian pepperberry, lemon myrtle), some exotic botanicals (cinnamon, cardamom, coriander seeds and star anise) and some classic botanicals (juniper, lavender, angelica root), as well as whole oranges to give Four Pillars Gin its flavour profile. Pillar 4 - The distillers love what they do and love what they have made. It all adds up to a vibrant Australian gin which stands out in cocktails, but tastes just superb neat.
