What do we think are the best gins of 2019?
1. Whitley Neill Gin Parma Violet Gin
Established in 1762 Whitley Neil offers a collection of quirky, modern flavoured gins, all of which take inspiration from different countries around the world. Their amazing Parma Violet Gin is going down a storm this year! Inspired by the rustic Italian countryside, this sensational gin gives delicious notes of juniper followed by an aromatic floral taste.
2. Gin Volcanic
All the way from he Pyranees area of Spain,Gin Volcanic is making waves in the UK this year. In a process which takes over a year, this gin is distilled from green walnuts with the addition of volcanic rocks, fruits, berries and plants which together create a bold citrus and floral taste like no other.
3. Bombay Saphire
Most of the UK population will be familiar with Bombay Saphire already, but as it is 'the worlds most famous gin' we couldn't leave it out of our list. During the distillation of Bombay Saphire gin, 12 precious botanicals including liquorice, juniper berries and lemon peel are suspended above the spirit in perforated copper baskets so that when the spirit's vapours rise they are infused perfectly giving us the amazing gin we all know and love so much.
4. Beefeater Blood Orange
New to the scene this year is the Beefeater Blood Orange gin which packs a punch of flavour! Inspired by the London Markets this gin boasts some impressive Botanicals including juniper, angelica seeds, orris root, coriander seed and of course orange peel and natural flavourings. Paired with either tonic or ginger ale, this is a gin you will be tasting more than once!
5. Gordon’s Pink
Not only does Gordon's Pink Gin look fabulous in your hand, it tastes fabulous too. It's a win win combination! Bursting with natural sweetness of raspberries and strawberries with a fresh touch of Juniper, this gin is highly refreshing and ideal for the summer months! Add real red fruits and berries to the mix for the perfect finishing touch.
