Explore an array of gins this World Gin Day
This World Gin Day (June 11th), why not try a new gin from different places in the world? From India’s Jaisalmer Gin to Aviation American Gin - crafted in small batches in Oregon, to the English Cotswolds and Pinkster Gin - each gin offering a different experience.
Aviation American Gin, owned by Hollywood actor and producer Ryan Reynolds, has been voted the world’s highest rated gin and has helped establish a new style of American gin - softer and smoother, with juniper in the background and citrus and floral notes in the front - resulting in a really well-balanced gin that is a great base for cocktails.
Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin is triple-distilled, handcrafted in a traditional copper pot still in small batches at one of India’s oldest distilleries, located in the foothills of the Himalayas. Jaisalmer Gin encapsulates the whole of India in one bottle as seven of the 11 botanicals are sourced from all four corners of India. Jaisalmer Gin is wonderful in cocktails and makes a classic G&T, mixed with Indian Tonic Water and a twist of orange.
The pioneers of pink gin, Pinkster Gin is made from gin-soaked raspberries grown near Pinkster HQ in Cambridgeshire which give it its pink hue and subtle fruitiness. Pinkster has no added sugar with the sweetness coming from the raspberries alone. A deliciously dry gin with a hint of fruit and an exceptionally smooth finish. Perfect served with tonic, ice and garnished with a sprig of mint and a raspberry.
Pinkster has unveiled its juniper-rich, base gin as Naked Pinkster. This super pure gin has always been macerated with fresh raspberries but in a nod to traditional styles is now available as a gorgeous drink in its own right.
The Cotswolds Distillery Dry Gin stands out from the crowd with its slight opalescence. This is because it is non-chill filtered so the oils are retained in the gin, causing a pearlescent cloud to appear when ice and tonic are added, creating the ‘Cloudy G&T’.
Cotswolds No. 1 Wildflower Gin is a blend of cornflowers, lavender, orange and rhubarb root, layered over a classic London Dry gin. It is a fragrant, full-strength gin bursting with natural flavour and delicate floral aromas of summer meadows. Cotswolds No 1 Wildflower Gin makes for a fabulous and refreshing gin spritz when mixed with premium tonic, ice and a garnished with a slice of orange.
