5 British Gins For Spring
Gin has long been one of Britain's most beloved spirits, and there are now more handcrafted gins being produced by independent artisans than ever before. These artisanal gins are made with the utmost care and attention to detail, and they are the perfect way to refresh you on a warm spring day. Here are five of the most unique British gins for spring:
This handcrafted gin is made with 100% natural Elderflower and Jasmine from the Secret Garden Distillery in Edinburgh. It is distilled and blended with juniper, coriander, angelica root and winter savory to create a perfectly balanced gin. The flowers are then steeped in the gin for some time to infuse their delicate aromas and flavours into the spirit. Serving tip: Best served with a light tonic and a grapefruit garnish.
This award-winning handcrafted colour-changing gin is made with 13 botanicals ranging from fiery pink peppercorns to soothing chamomile and aromatic lime leaf and pink grapefruit marmalade. It is then distilled in a traditional copper pot still and left to rest for 24 hours. The result is a beautiful pink colour that changes to purple when mixed with tonic water. Serving tip: Garnish with a slice of red grapefruit and a sprig of rosemary.
This small-batch handcrafted gin is made with beautiful red Scottish rhubarb and complementary botanicals including juniper, Seville orange peels, Orcadian rose petals and aromatic cinnamon. Rhubarb Old Tom gin has picked up many awards for its unique zingy and lightly sweetened flavour - with a gold in the World Gin Awards and a highly sought after Great Taste Award in its great repertoire. Serving tip: Try serving it as a fruity cocktail, with a slice of fresh fruit of your choice.
This Rock Rose Gin Spring Edition gives a wonderful twist to Dunnet Bay Distillers' classic Rock Rose Gin. A premium handcrafted Scottish gin, it's distilled using ingredients foraged from the local area for its distinct taste, like dandelion and gorse flowers. This unique mix of carefully selected botanicals give the gin a cool, fresh taste - like a spring day in Caithness! Serving tip: Add tonic and garnish with coriander.
Handcrafted by Hawkridge Distillers in Berkshire, this spirit is infused with tender young nettles and ripe blackberries to create a beautiful hedgerow gin. Serving tip: Drop a blackberry and a lemon peel and give it a stir!
