The latter adds extra aromatics and allows this gin to work particularly well as an alternative to vodka in a Bloody Mary, as well as other classic cocktails.
No.3 is the London Dry Gin distilled to a proprietary recipe of Berry Bros. & Rudd, London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant.

With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of a classic London Dry Gin: six perfectly balanced botanicals distilled in traditional copper pot stills.

The guys from Ben's Canteen in London have made a gin!

Garnish with a slice of orange and a sprig of lavender.

We all love Gordon’s, whether we’re fans of Ramsay or not. The world’s most popular gin and a perennial bestseller, Gordon’s has a flavour which has come to epitomise quality gin. Juniper-led with peppery spice and sweet lemon zest following closely. Aromas of hops and eucalyptus underpinned by sage and liquorice whirl as you sip and a deeper, earthy aftertaste lingers, with citrus zest still coming through.

Dodd's Gin is The London Distillery Company's first gin produced solely in London, following the release of their Anglo-American Testbed 1 gin samples in 2012. It's named after Ralph Dodd, who back in 1807 had planned to build a distillery in London for the creation of British spirits. Ralph's dream sadly crumbled however, much like a number of bridges and tunnels he designed.
The gin itself is made exclusively with organic botanicals, including juniper, angelica, fresh lime peel, cardamom, red raspberry leaf, bay laurel, and honey from The London Honey Company.

From the Doghouse Distillery in London comes Renegade Gin - a particularly punchy expression that'll stand out wonderfully in cocktails and mixed drinks (the bottle ought to stand out well on your back-bar, too). The folks behind Renegade Gin are very 'hands-on' with the production, taking it from grain to bottle themselves - a noble pursuit!
The Maritime Gin is an infusion of botanicals with 5 different types of seaweed, all locally sourced. Some of the botanicals are dried and others blast chilled, with the more delicate placed in Méabh’s vapour tray. Some of the ingredients are so unusual, harvesting can only take place when there is a full moon, with the foraging at times extremely hazardous, as the tide means everything.
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.
