Read on to find out more about these stylish gins:
Sacred Pink Grapefruit Gin 43.8%
Made using whole distilled organic Pink Grapefruit from Spain and Italy, this gin is a shining example of how vacuum distillation retains the freshness of the botanicals.
Pour straight from the freezer into a chilled glass with one or two drops of Angostura Bitters for a Pink Grapefruit Pink Gin, or try your hand at a Pink Grapefruit Martini, and garnish each with a pared lemon zest.
Alternatively, pour a large measure of Sacred Pink Grapefruit Gin over ice, top with our favourite Double Dutch Pomegranate & Basil Tonic water and garnish with a slice of ruby red grapefruit and a sprig of fresh basil.
Geranium London Dry Gin 44%
Geranium Premium London Dry Gin is one of a kind. Created by gin judge Henrik Hammer and his chemist father, this gin is distilled using freshly harvested geranium and 9 other botanicals which are steeped for 48 hours prior to distillation. Geranium Gin is made for both experts and beginners. It adds a superior quality to every cocktail. Floral notes on the nose, strong juniper flavours with hints of roses and violets in the mouth. Its finish is quite complex with a light sweetness and tender citrus aromas. A true London Dry Gin with an enormously exciting floral quality! If you Like 'Blue Bottle gin' this is going to be right up your street.
The King Of Soho London Dry 42%
This gin is King of the World! Or, at least, it's the King of Soho, which is just as good, as Soho encompasses almost every aspect of the world in a much smaller area. Art, music, culture and now, gin! (Those are the only things in the world, right?)
King of Soho is made in the heart of London by Howard Raymond, son of Paul Raymond, the property tycoon who helped revolutionise Soho and make it the wonderful centre for culture it is today. The gin is made with 12 botanicals that give it a full-bodied and fresh flavour profile.
Bulldog London Dry 40%
A delicious English gin made with poppy, dragon eye, lotus leaves, citrus, almond, lavender and various another 6 botanicals. This is distilled quadruple times in a traditional copper pot still, and Bulldog had the highest rating ever received by a gin from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. It was also voted a Top 50 spirit! It is dark, stout, and crowned with a spiked dog collar around the neck, making it is as eye-catching as the liquor inside... truly captivating.
