BRITISH GINS

BARS A&B

6 O’CLOCK GIN ABV 43% Thornbury, England

Strikingly smooth 6 O’clock Gin has a clean flavour led by Juniper. The smoothness flows from our custom-built copper still with its unique double sphere head, together with the careful selection of our botanicals and our distiller’s craft. Only the pure heart of each run makes the cut.

Garnish: Lemon Peel Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

BAD FAGIN’S DEVON GIN ABV 43% Exeter, England

Devon Good is made using Dartmoor spring water, creating a soft citrus centric, orange forward peppery gin. Lemon and orange peel, fresh pink grapefruit and orange zest, kafir lime, juniper and Seville orange blossoms make an extremely fragrant gin that sips well on the rocks or makes a fantastic G&T.

Garnish: Orange Slice Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

BERTHA’S REVENGE GIN ABV 42% Ireland

Bertha’s Revenge is a unique endeavour of a gin that takes its base spirit from whey and its name from a legendary cow – Big Bertha. Bertha reached the grand old age of 48 and had birthed 39 calves by the time she died in 1993, earning herself the title of world’s oldest cow (and most productive mother, to boot). Bertha’s Revenge Gin, distilled at Ballyvolane House Spirits, is a tribute to both her longevity and her maternal instincts.

BLACK DOG GIN ABV 46% Devon, England

Many hours have gone into perfecting our flagship Black Dog Gin. This smooth, botanical infusion boasts strong citrus notes, flashes hints of wild flowers and finishes off with red berries. Perfect all year round.

Garnish: Lime Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

BLOOM GIN

ABV 40% London, England A delicate and floral gin enriched with honeysuckle, chamomile and pomelo. Bloom Premium London Dry Gin is not quite like any other premium gin. It is a light, delicate and floral gin with a totally unique slightly sweet taste created by a bespoke blend of 3 botanicals: honeysuckle, chamomile and pomelo.

Garnish: Apple, Lime & Mint Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

BRECON WELSH GIN ABV 40% Brecon, Wales

A Welsh gin made at the famous whisky distillery, Penderyn. This is flavoured with juniper from Macedonia, orange peel from Spain, Chinese cassia bark, Sri Lankan liquorice, Madagascan cinnamon, French angelica root, Russian coriander, Indian nutmeg, Spanish lemon peel and Italian orris root. Very tasty indeed.

Garnish: Lemon Wedge Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

BROCKMANS GIN ABV 40% London, England

Brockmans Gin is something quite different. A fusion of botanicals sourced from all over Europe, this is an intensely smooth, refreshingly fruity gin unlike any other on the market. The unique recipe uses Tuscan juniper, Bulgarian coriander, Valencian orange peel and wild dried blueberries and blackberries. A carefully managed steeping and copper pot distillation method results in the highly distinctive and smooth taste. The traditional juniper notes act as a platform for the aromatic wild berries and the citrus kick to come to life.

Garnish: Blackberries & Orange Pairs Best With: Ginger Ale 8

BARS A&B

BROKER’S GIN

ABV 47% Birmingham, England Broker’s Gin is made in a 200-year-old distillery in the heart of England using a traditional copper pot-still. The recipe is as old as the distillery. A quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit made from English wheat is re-distilled with ten traditional botanicals, creating a gin of outstanding flavour and smoothness. Broker’s Gin does not follow the modern trend of using weird and wonderful spirits and botanicals. There are no oddball ingredients in Broker’s Gin.

Garnish: Lime Wedge Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

BULLDOG GIN ABV 40% Burleighs, Leicester

A smooth, modern gin. Citrus forward at first with light, sweet botanicals of liquorice, almond and dragon eye. Creamy with a balance of flavours rather than one overriding dominance. Includes the unique botanicals of dragon eye, white poppy and lotus leaf; along with lavender from France.

Garnish: Pink Grapefruit Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

CAORUNN GIN

ABV 41.8% Cairngorms, Scotland What makes Caorunn so remarkable? The answer is simple – it’s all in our unique blend of botanicals. Caorunn, pronounced ‘ka-roon’, is the Gaelic word for Rowan Berry – a Celtic botanical that forms the very soul of our gin. Infusing a total of eleven botanicals in our unique Copper Berry Chamber, we harness Scotland’s unique natural resources and age-old botanicals to mouth-watering effect. Wild, foraged Scottish Highland botanicals.

Garnish: Apple Slices Pairs Best With: Elderflower Tonic

CHILGROVE GIN ABV 44% Chilgrove, England

On the nose is a clear floral (lavender and violet) aroma with fruity grape notes plus a hint of sweet (liquorice) and warm (orange) citrusy spice (coriander). On the palate this softly smooth full-bodied spirit has a well-rounded mouth feel with a clear piney juniper, floral and zesty citrus taste. There are also hints of herbaceous green (savory) and minty (water mint) along with warm orange to add to the flavor. On the close the minty green continues with the juniper and citrus (lemon and lime) plus a long spicy pepper (grains of paradise) finish.

Garnish: Lime & Mint Pairs Best With: Elderflower Tonic 10

CONKER DORSET DRY GIN ABV 40% Dorset, England

We’ve created a unique and intricate gin of ten select botanicals, distilled and bottled by us at Dorset’s first gin distillery, nestled in the back streets of Bournemouth. Whilst still a proper classic gin, led by a dry Macedonian juniper heart, the subtle incorporation of the Dorset notes of elderberries, samphire and handpicked New Forest gorse flowers brings bright and refreshing lighter notes to Conker.

Garnish: Lime Peel Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

COPPER HOUSE DRY GIN

ABV 40% Southwold, Suffolk, England Adnams Copper House Dry Gin is made with juniper berries, orris root, coriander seed, cardamom pod, sweet orange peel and hibiscus flower. Of these botanicals, it’s probably the hibiscus flower which is the least expected. On our travels, we actually experienced hibiscus flower in tea and we fell in love with the bitter, floral fruit flavours of the petals. We believe Hibiscus Flower adds a great dimension to our beloved gin.

Garnish: Orange Peel Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

COTSWOLDS DRY GIN

ABV 46% Shipston-on-Stour, Cotswolds, England Our Cotswolds Dry Gin has a delectable blend of nine carefully-considered botanicals. We add our unique botanical mix of Cotswolds lavender and bay leaf, grapefruit, lime, black pepper and cardamom seed into our bespoke Holstein pot still for distillation before finishing with naturally refined Cotswolds water. The result is a classic well-balanced juniperled gin with crisp citrus and spice. This gin is delicious on its own and over ice.

Garnish: Pink Grapefruit Slice Pairs Best With: Naturally Light Tonic

DAFFY’S GIN ABV 43.4% Scotland

An incredibly smooth gin with great complexity and depth of flavour due to its pre-aging distillation technique. Fresh citrus notes sit alongside toffee, spice and classic London Dry juniper. The adventure started with our discovery of what Lebanese mint can bring to the finest gin. Balanced with eight other carefully chosen botanicals, we have created an exceptionally fresh, smooth and truly original gin with complexity and balanced charm.

Garnish: Lime & Mint Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

E18HTEEN GIN ABV 42% Somerset, England

E18hteen Gin is made from the vodka produced by our Master Distiller. This allows for a better yield and makes E18hteen Gin sweeter and smoother to taste. This apple led gin is redistilled in copper pot alembic stills through a process of timed maceration using only the highest quality botanicals. This leads to a superb ensemble of flavours swirling around in a superb London Dry Gin.

Garnish: Slice of Apple Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

EDINBURGH CANNONBALL GIN ABV 57.2% Edinburgh, Scotland

Inspired by Edinburgh’s rich naval heritage of cannons and the famous One O’clock Gun, our Cannonball Gin is a Navy Strength gin that lives up to its evocative name. Cannonball resurrects a historic style of gin commissioned by the British Navy, making this gin an homage to Edinburgh’s seafaring past. With twice the juniper content of our classic Edinburgh Gin, it packs quite the punch.

Garnish: Lemon Twist Pairs Best With: Aromatic Tonic

FIFTY POUNDS GIN ABV 43% London, England

The name comes from the time of George II and the 1736 Gin Act, when a 50 pound tax was levied on those wishing to produce and sell gin. The story goes that the ancestors of the makers of this fine gin, created a gin recipe which they ironically named ‘Fifty Pounds’. The current version of Fifty Pounds Gin is said to be taken from that recipe. Fifty Pounds blasts onto the palate with juniper, spearmint and almond essence top notes with mixed citrus peel and star anise below. A very smooth gin with a slight mint and eucalyptus finish

Garnish: Lime or Mint Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

HAWTHORN’S GIN ABV 37.5% London, England

Our single batch award-winning gin is created from 10 botanicals, sourced from the same four corners of the globe in which my grandfather laid anchor. Whilst the exact recipe remains a secret, our botanicals include nutmeg grown in Sri Lanka and Indonesian cassia bark. We stay true to traditional hand crafted methods, distilling Hawthorn’s from 100% English wheat in a beautiful vintage copper pot still manufactured by John Dore &Co, long recognized as the finest still maker in the world.

Garnish: Lemon or Lime Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

HAMPSHIRE FINE DRY GIN

ABV 40% Hampshire, England There are 6 botanicals in Hampshire Fine Dry Gin including juniper, coriander, angelica, lemon and lime. The production method for this gins varies a little compared to the other Hampshire Gins produced: the dry botanicals macerated and distilled in the pot still as normal whilst the fresh citrus peel’s flavours and aromas are extracted by “vapour infusion”.

Garnish: Zest of Lime Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

HAMPSHIRE GUNPOWDER NAVY STRENGTH GIN ABV 57% Hampshire, England

Our Navy Strength gin distilled with juniper, sea buckthorn and the highest quality gunpowder tea sourced in Hampshire. Bottling at 57% ABV (as required by British Navy law) allows the concentration of oils, extracted from the botanicals during distillation, to be raised significantly higher than a standard 40% gin giving a fuller flavour and silky mouth-feel.

Garnish: Zest of Orange Pairs Best With: Aromatic

THE KING OF SOHO GIN ABV 42% London, England

Whilst remaining true to its London Dry heritage the gin has a delicate combination of sweetness, citrus and earthiness and a hint of grapefruit bitterness on the back of the palate. The gin has a clean and gentle nose which belies its strength that opens up to reveal classic juniper and pine notes with a refreshing zest of citrus oil. The tangy grapefruit reluctantly gives way to soft warming spice. A modern classic, it is complex yet harmonious and ideal for cocktails and drinks where the spirit is King.

Garnish: Orange Wedge Pairs Best With: Aromatic Tonic

LANGLEY’S N o .8 GIN ABV 41.7% Totton, Hampshire, England

Distilled in a small English-produced pot still and blended by expert craftsmen, Langley’s No.8 Gin delivers a smooth, rounded finish with just the right balance of alcohol. Traditional flavours of spicy juniper, aromatic coriander and zesty citrus beautifully complement each other, creating a marriage of flavours that dance on the tongue and produce a pleasing drying length on the palate as it is savoured.

Garnish: Lemon Wedge Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

THE LONDON N o .1 GIN ABV 47% London, England

The London No.1 was created to both be visually striking and to make the perfect G&T. The London No.1 is produced using the highest quality English grain spirit and the purest spring water found in the north of London with a unique blend of 12 botanicals. It is then triple distilled under the expert direction of Master Distiller, Charles Maxwell. The unique blue colour of London No.1 comes from the inclusion of Gardenia flowers, a favourite plant of Queen Victoria.

Garnish: Lemon & Lime Zest Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

N o .3 GIN

ABV 46% London, England 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. In the mouth the juniper develops into a crispness nicely balanced by a soft spiciness.

Garnish: Lemon Wedge Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

OPIHR GIN

ABV 40% London, England Opihr (pronounced O-Peer) smells of the cocktail of spices it’s made with, especially the cardamom. Its distinct aroma is soft, rounded, complex and balanced. It tastes bright and fresh to start with - you can taste the orange and coriander. It’s slightly sweet, with a spicy heat that builds gently, before fading into a long, soft finish of cardamom and juniper.

Garnish: Orange Wedge Pairs Best With: Ginger Ale

PINKSTER GIN

ABV 37.5% Cambridge, England Pinkster is made with only 5 botanicals, most importantly the fresh, locally grown raspberries! This pink gin is deliciously dry, with a hint of fruit and an exceptionally smooth finish. Pinkster are definitely on to something of a winner as they were recently voted the UK’s third favourite gin. So there you have it, welcome to Pinkster, the natural gin with a mischievous grin.

PORTOBELLO ROAD N o .171 GIN ABV 42% London, England

On the front of the palate Portobello Road Gin has a generous slug of juniper, the mid palate has a sustained, fresh citrus character from our use of lemon, bitter orange and coriander, which then develops into a sweet peppery finish, achieved by the use of liquorice and nutmeg.

Garnish: Pink Grapefruit Slice Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

POTHECARY GIN ABV 44.8% Dorset, England

Having hand-picked five distinct botanical ingredients from around the world, going against tradition with notes of lavender, mulberry and honey, Pothecary Gin carefully blends the individually distilled components to create its unique aroma and flavour. A pleasantly soft style of gin, with a little oiliness and the aromatic notes of lavender and citrus. A very sippable texture and a bold yet balanced flavor profile, and a lovely lingering finish.

QUICK GIN

ABV 40.5% Spoken, Exmouth Quick Gin is infused with oranges and a hint of almond to round off the gin that creates big and bold flavour that is both distinguished and flavoursome - but is still easy drinking. Adding a simple orange garnish helps to bring out the very best. Insist on the orange – you will not regret it – there is always time for a Quick Gin!

Garnish: Orange Slice Pairs Best With: Mediterranean Tonic

RAMSBURY GIN ABV 40% Wiltshire, England

Ramsbury Gin is a classic London Dry with an up-to-date twist. This unique combination of savoury juniper and tart quince is both fresh and warming. Ramsbury Estate was built on the principle of using local ingredients and the idea of capturing the local landscape in a bottle. This ethos means Ramsbury Gin is distilled from the estate’s own spirit in a copper still, using only the finest Horatio wheat, grown in their fields in the ancient Wiltshire landscape.

SALCOMBE GIN

ABV 44% Salcombe, Devon, England Salcombe Gin is the perfect balance of aromas and flavours between the heady, earthy and resinous pine notes of the finest Macedonian juniper, selected for their high Limonene content, combined with warming spiced citrus notes from English coriander seeds grown by one of our suppliers and fresh citrus peels, peeled by us immediately prior to distillation. We use a number of citrus peels including grapefruits, lemons and limes that were some of the fruit cargos carried by the famous Salcombe Fruiters, a key part of the spirit of our brand.

Garnish: Pink Grapefruit Slice Pairs Best With: Indian Tonic

SIBLING GIN

ABV 42% Cheltenham, England A rather striking triple distilled gin from Cheltenham, made by a team of four siblings! Produced at their state-of-the-art distillery, the gin’s botanicals (which include juniper, vanilla, orange peel, lemon peel and blueberries - amongst others) are infused into the finely crafted spirit using a carter-head still. The spring water from Cheltenham used for Sibling Gin is naturally filtered through a layer of Fuller’s earth. This all results in a gin with a superb mouth feel, that wonderfully delivers notes of fresh citrus, creamy vanilla and bright, fruity blueberry.

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.
