Bloom Gin

*Janice from Friends voice* OH. MY. GOD! That was my exact reaction after my first taste of Bloom gin. I’d seen Bloom a few times before but always chose something else over it, so when I saw it was on special offer for the bargain price of £19 I couldn’t resist. What an absolute fool…

Hotel Chocolat Cocoa Gin

Imagine my joy upon opening a bottle of Hotel Chocolat cocoa gin on the morning of my birthday; two of my most favourite things on this planet combined into one little bottle (and when I say little bottle I really do mean it, it’s 250ml). Everyone loves Hotel Chocolat don’t they, it’s as close to sex…

Portobello Road Gin

As soon as I spotted Portobello Road gin in my local Booths supermarket, I didn’t even look at anything else. It’s all about the label for me, the fickle being that I am, and this caught my eye straight away. If you like a dry London gin, then you’ll love Portobello Road gin. I’ll admit…

Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur

My lovely friend, Kelly, bought me a bottle of Edinburgh Gin’s Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur as part of my birthday present and I was delighted as soon as I saw it. I’d been thinking about making my own rhubarb gin for a while but had never quite gotten around to it, along with around a…

Thomas Dakin Gin

I’ll be totally honest, I bought a bottle of Thomas Dakin gin purely because it’s distilled in Manchester and being a northern girl I just couldn’t resist. The square bottle and bright red label really give this gin some shelf appeal, it stands out and has you fascinated to try it. The fact that it…

Butlers Gin – Lemongrass and Cardamom

Now, I’ve tasted my fair share of different gins in my time, but nothing else is quite like Butlers Gin if you ask me. I was given a bottle of the Lemongrass and Cardamon gin as a present from my very kind brother-in-law who knows that if in doubt, buy me gin. I’ll be totally…

Bathtub Gin

Can you marry a gin? Of course, you can’t, it’s ridiculous, but I’d betroth myself to Bathtub Gin. That’s how much I bloody love it. Bathtub Gin is quite possibly my favourite gin to see on any drinks shelf. You may have guessed that from the very first sentence of this review. The bottle is…

Hendrick’s

Hendrick’s is a staple of my gin collection. And I’ll apologise now, as this may become a little bit of a love letter to one of my favourite gins. Let’s start with the bottle. The distinctive Hendrick’s gin bottle jumps out to you on the shelf. The black glass and large diamond shaped label make…

Opihr

This is probably the hardest gin review I’ve had to write on this site yet…. It’s not that I dislike Opihr gin, because I don’t, it’s delicious, it’s just that it didn’t leave me wanting more. I was attracted to Opihr because of the bottle. It looks impressive. The chunky clear glass bottle with the…
