Resplendent in straw-yellow, Boudier’s Saffron gin places premium, luxurious saffron at its heart. Gabriel Boudier’s micro-distillery is known for the quality of its work and each Boudier’s Saffron gin batch is handcrafted using natural botanicals creating its delicately spicy character. Juniper is of course in there with notes of iris, angelica, orange peels and interesting fennel, delivering the liquorice aniseed notes which last long after drinking. The colour stands out but the flavour is even more memorable.
Handmade in small batches in the heart of Scotland using Edinburgh Gin and the finest Perthshire raspberries. A fresh raspberry taste, a perfect liqueur, wonderful with tonic, soda or lemonade, excellent in cocktails, with Champagne or simply ice.
This addition to Edinburgh Gin's liqueur range is a combination of spring rhubarb, macerated in oriental ginger and lemon zest before being infused with Edinburgh Gin. Best served in a long drink with lemonade
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.
Five days steeping before distillation in a copper pot still create the unique and unusually flavoured Hoxton Gin. Flavoured with sweet coconut, refreshing grapefruit, classic juniper, iris, tarragon and hits of ginger, Hoxton Gin is different to your average gin. Unlike most other gins juniper is not the leading flavour and it ends on woody eucalyptus notes, a satisfying alternative to traditional gins. Enjoy a special experience with Hoxton gin, however you choose to drink it.
Inspired by the attitude and style associated with Hoxton, East London, this gin was produced by London-based nightlife entrepreneur and mixologist Gerry Calabrese in a local micro-distillery. Only ethically sourced botanicals, such as bergamot, chamomile, elderflower, grapefruit, gunpowder tea, hibiscus sugar, juniper, liquorice, orris and rose hip were used for the Hoxton's Pink's recipe.
The name ‘Jindea’ is a portmanteau of ‘Juniper’ and the French words for India and tea, which provides a fairly accurate picture of the brand, as it is made in an alembic still in France, with juniper and first-flush Darjeeling tea as its main botanicals.
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.

The label features St. Dunstan who, according to Mayfield folklore, tricked the devil into wearing a red hot horseshoe, thus creating the legend of the lucky horseshoe. Good job, St. Dunstan!

This recipe takes a classic London Dry backbone and layers on sweet, sun-dried lemon peels, lemon verbena from the garden of Sipsmith's Master Distiller for aromatic sweetness on the nose and vapour-infused fresh hand peeled lemon, to give a zesty lemon twist to every bottle.
A zesty, chocolately gin with lashings of juniper, Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin is a modern take on the popular combination of chocolate and orange.

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.

Other botanicals include a trio of citrus peels (grapefruit, orange and lemon), elderflower, hibiscus, cinnamon and cardamom, among others.

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.
When you hear the word Camden, what do you think about? The music? The markets? Well, if you were around in the latter half of the 1800s, you might know Camden more for its gin . Some of that history still exists - take a look at the street called Juniper Crescent, for example.
While those times may have passed but Half Hitch Gin is bringing gin back to Camden. Produced in the former warehouse vaults of Camden Lock, Half Hitch gin is made with a gin base that is blended with tinctures of Malawian black tea, pepper, hay, English wood and bergamot. The name itself was inspired by the knots used to tie barges to the Lock.
An exuberant expression of that most aromatic of spices, cardamom, made with organic green cardamom pods from Guatemala.

Alternatively, pour a large measure over ice and top with your favourite tonic water. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of thyme for a wonderfully dry Gin & Tonic.
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.
Four Pillars Sherry Cask Gin is an intense, rich new edition which was distilled in Healesville before being barrel-aged in 42 sherry and Australian fortified wine (Apera, created by friends of the Four Pillars) barrels which contained expressions between 15-35 years old.
Four Pillars arranged these barrels into a solera system, where the aged gin is then bottled from the bottom row of barrels after a year before a small amount of Spanish Amontillado sherry is added to the top for extra depth of flavour.
All of that sounds amazing, so you might want to hurry if you want to get your hands on some...
