Broker’s, London, 40%
A wonderful classic London dry gin, created in the late 1990s. The recipe is over 200 years old and all the botanicals are steeped for 24 hours in quadruple distilled neutral grain spirit made from 100% English wheat.
Tanqueray, Rangpur, 41.3%
The Rangpur lime has the zest of a lime but is as juicy as an orange and looks similar to a mandarin. This is not a gin that is infused after distillation, the botanicals and flavourings are distilled into the spirit, producing a well-balanced gin with a real citrus twist.
6 O’clock, 43%
Made with just 7 botanicals, including elderflower, orange peel, juniper, coriander, orris, and angelica, it is smooth and fresh in almost a traditional London dry style, however the orange peel adds a delightful citrusiness to the gin, resulting in a clean, smooth and richly flavoured gin.
A premium quality gin made with a blend of 11 botanicals and a unique infusion of rose petals and cucumber. Juniper is present along with the subtle notes of cucumber adding a fresh quality whilst the rose is most definitely present on the nose.
Sheeps Eye, 42%
Only fans of Guys and Dolls will understand why a company called The Lickerish Tooth would produce a gin called Sheep's Eye, but we rather like this quirky creation. 10 botanicals including juniper, celery seed, black pepper and thyme are infused in the spirit before redistilling.
Whitley Neil, 43%
Whitley Neil includes two unique African botanicals; the fruit of the Baobab tree and Cape Gooseberries. These sit alongside more traditional gin botanicals which give a longer, slightly sweeter, smooth finish with a touch of lemon peel on the end.
Poetic License, Northern Dry, 43%
A citrusy yet spicy gin from a small batch distillery based in Sunderland. A big punch of juniper finely balanced with green cardamom for a warm and spicy flavour with undertones of lemon and eucalyptus. Perfectly clear and delightfully unusual.
An extraordinary gin, lightly tinted by botanicals, and with a flavour which is both bold and perfumed, all at once. The bottles are all hand wrapped and glued with Pritt stick in Tunbridge Wells.
Eden Mill, 42%
The St Andrews take on a classic London Dry. Made from Fife’s sea buckthorn berries, a super food that grows within walking distance of their distillery. The unique tart berry flavour is abundant but well balanced. This gin is on quite a different level to most.
Thomas Dakin, 42%
To begin, juniper merges with horseradish in an unusual heady mix. Sweet orange and a sharper grapefruit join soon after, along with classic gin flavours. Thomas Dakin gin is different whilst also being respectful of the fact that it is first and foremost, juniper centred.
The Whittaker's produce an artisan Gin from their home in the heart of Nidderdale, North Yorkshire. Hawthorne berries bring background sweetness. It packs a punch and makes a classic gin and tonic!
Puerto de Indias, Strawberry, 37.5%
With a delicate touch of liquorice, this gin offers intense aromas of strawberry, and juniper combines with subtle citrus notes.
The botanicals include coconut, grapefruit, juniper, iris, tarragon and ginger and are macerated for five days before a single distillation in 150 year old copper pot stills.
Brockmans, Blueberry & Blackberry infused, 40.0%
Distinctly different from the London Dry style. Marrying up beautifully with the blueberries and blackberries, this inspired combination, together with the dry, bitter sweet Valencian oranges makes Brockmans a beautiful, intensely smooth gin.
Deliciously dry, with a hint of raspberries that are also infused in the gin after triple distillation, which is why the liquid has a pink hue. A healthy dose of juniper ensures that the raspberry scent is accompanied by that customary dryness.
Slingsby, Rhubarb, 40%
A limited edition rhubarb flavoured gin from Yorkshire made with locally sourced botanicals and Harrogate aquifer water. Initial sweetness of rhubarb and raspberry followed by the bitter tang of the pink grapefruit citrus base.
Warner Edwards, Elderflower, 40%
The perfect Summer tipple, it’s sweet and floral on the palate with a delicious viscosity that combines beautifully with the warm spices of the dry gin base. The elderflower is only harvested once a year from two farms in England and Wales.
Sikkim, Bilberry, 40%
Sikkim Bilberry is a beautifully distilled gin with juniper, red tea, flower essences, blackberries, iris, blueberries, coriander, calamus and bitter orange skin. It provides a sweet fruity taste on the palate with the aroma of flowers.
Wonderfully vibrant, Malfy radiates brightly with lemon and citrus zest. Sharp and dry on the nose with fresh lemon and a hint of ginger, Malfy softens on the palate becoming lemon sorbet-like. Noticeable juniper and a touch of black pepper that brings the gin around perfectly.
Steam Punk, 40%
The Northumberland Gin Co. uses seven ‘peculiar’ botanicals from around the world, as well as the much less peculiar juniper berry. It is smooth on the palate, with juniper, cardamom and citrus melting together in perfect harmony.
Gin Mare, Mediterranean, 42.7%
An interesting Mediterranean styled gin that pushes the boundaries with its flavour profile. Rosemary, thyme, olive and basil are used alongside more traditional botanicals. The Rosemary stands out, but the juniper is there and everything seems to work together.
Distilled from grain and infused with hand-cracked juniper berries, freshly cut citrus peels and other locally sourced botanicals. Crisp, clean and balanced, Brooklyn offers bright fruit notes supported by bold juniper which lingers through the smooth, dry finish.
A family-created small batch gin. Botanicals foraged from the Macclesfield Forest – this includes wild bilberries, gorse flowers, raspberries and local moss, among others. The distinctive English Porcelain bottles feature a screen-printed design by Suzy Taylor.

Cruxland, KWV, 43%
KWV wanted to create a special gin with botanicals typical to South Africa. A bold and earthy character with botanicals including juniper berries, honey bush tea, coriander, rooibos, aniseed, cardamom, almonds, and lemon.
Monkey 47, 47.0%
German Gin – whatever next?! A whopping 47 botanicals go intot his Black Forest number. The use of local cranberries is some sort of "secret weapon". This highly decorated gin has 4 Stars in the Difford’s guide to Gin.
It’s a Burnley gin, but don’t let that put you off! Fresh juniper and a mix of spices create a symphony of flavours with a mild, sweet, almost floral element and, unusually, frankincense and myrrh.
