Gin Reviews

I drink gin. I write reviews about gin. Given that I have written these reviews with a few G&Ts inside me, I think they are quite lucid.

Berkeley Square Gin

Berkeley Square Gin is the brother of Bloom Gin, both are the brain-children of Joanne Moore, Master Distiller at Greenalls. They caused a little controversy when they first launched as they were each marketed at different sexes (Bloom for the ladies and Berkeley Square for the gents). While marketing gins like this is a little …

Tarquin’s Gin

This is gin review that’s been a long time coming. I got hold of this bottle over a year ago and it’s sat on my gin shelf for all this time with maybe a third of a bottle left. I’ve deliberately not finished the bottle because I knew I had to write words about it …

Larios Gin

I bought this bottle of Larios Gin in a Tenerife airport around this time last year. Every shop that had a booze shelf seemed to stock it, and every bar had it on-optic; it was as ubiquitous as Gordon’s is in the UK. So, when I saw a one-litre bottle in the airport, on-offer for around …

Adnams First Rate Gin

I have been wanting to try Adnams First Rate Gin (or “Finest Cut First Rate Gin”, to give it its full and slightly cumbersome name) ever since trying Adnams Copperhouse Gin toward the end of last year. So, a few weeks ago, when Adnams advertised a period of free delivery, on Twitter (@Adnams) I caved-in and …

Gin Mare

Many people have recommended that I try Gin Mare. This culminated in a three recommendations in one week followed by finding that Waitrose had it on sale with £6 off – it must have been providence. Gin Mare is distilled in a former chapel in the Spanish fishing village of Vilanova i la Geltrú, which is located …
