Gordon’s Special Dry London Gin Bottle

Award-winning Gordon’s London Dry Gin is the world’s No.1 gin. Established in 1769 by Alexander Gordon, the Gordon’s distillery was founded to produce a gloriously tasting gin worthy of carrying the Gordon family name. Gordon believed that success lay in the elegant combination of pure distilled grain spirit and rich botanicals. To this day, Gordon’s London Dry Gin is made to the same exacting standards, with a triple-distilled guarantee for the purity of the gin. The exact blend of botanicals remains a closely guarded secret with a combination of handpicked wild juniper berries, coriander, angelica and liquorice.

Beefeater Pink Gin

Beefeater Pink is a vibrant strawberry gin from Beefeater London. They’ve taken original Beefeater London Dry, the world’s most awarded gin, and infused it with natural strawberry flavouring to give it a fruity, strawberry twist. The soft fruit flavours of strawberry tune perfectly with classic notes of juniper and citrus to produce a finely balanced contemporary London gin with a hit of sweet strawberry. Beefeater Pink blends beautifully with other aromas and will enhance the taste of your drinks and cocktails. £18.00 from Tesco now.

Renais Gin

Renais is the product of two generations of the Watson family and their passion for winemaking in France. Founders Alex Watson and his sister Emma Watson were inspired by childhood trips to their family’s vineyard, Domaine Watson, in France, which their father has operated for more than 30 years; while Alex’s expertise, formed over a decade working in the drinks industry, has informed the product’s production process. The result is a bold and vibrant spirit with a truly incredible story and flavour profile, combining modernity and heritage in a beautiful bottle.
Made to be sipped over ice as well as mixing in cocktails, Renais suits stirred-down classics such as the martini, as well as long and refreshing spritzes and of course a G&T; it’s an exciting new addition to any spirits collection. £48, 70cl, 40% ABV, available directly from www.renais.co.uk, Selfridges, Whisky Exchange. Presented in a beautiful bottle evocative of luxury perfume brands, with subtle touches of gold, it makes an elegant addition to any back bar.

Grasmere Gin

Produced by the Grasmere Distillery in the heart of the Lake District, Grasmere Gin expresses profiles of fragrant juniper and herbal coriander notes, with a citrus and lemon rind finish. The botanicals are closed somewhat at 42% but will open up with a small splash of tonic. Best diluted to around 20% abv for the aromas to fully release and maximise the flavour but don’t drown it in tonic!
