Martin Miller’s Gin has been on my list to try for a while now, so I was really excited to finally buy some.
It was the bottle that initially drew me to Martin Miller’s Gin, it looks special and exciting. I knew it would fit right in with my ever-growing collection.
The first thing I noticed about this gin is just how incredibly smooth and refreshing it is. It’s a world away from the juniper-heavy gins that I’ve been drinking lately and it is a most welcome interruption.
Martin Miller’s Gin is infused with just the right amount of cucumber, so it tastes very light and clean on the palate. There is also just the slightest hint of citrus, which just adds to how refreshing this gin is.
The first gin and tonic I made with Martin Miller’s Gin was with lots of Fever Tree light tonic water and plenty of ice. To garnish I halved some strawberries and cracked some black pepper over the top of them. The strawberries give it a really summery taste and give that little bit of sweetness that is complimented by the heat of the black pepper.
With how refreshing this gin is, I also tried it with some slices of pink grapefruit, my new favourite garnish for gin. It added a twist of sweet and sharp that worked really well. The citrus in the gin was really brought out by the fruit. It would also go really well with discs of cucumber as you would with Hendrick’s – but this is better than Hendrick’s if you ask me.
At about £28 a bottle, I think Martin Miller’s Gin is pretty reasonable. It’s certainly very versatile, so if you’re unsure of spending almost £30 on a bottle of gin you can take comfort in the fact that this definitely won’t be sat in your cupboard gathering dust.
