Edinburgh Gin (1x 70cl)

Since 2010, Edinburgh Gin has been committed to the art and science of distilling, and of creating innovative, award-winning gins. Based in Scotland’s capital city, they are ever-inspired by its gin-making heritage, and of its position as a global light; a home to scientists, artists, philosophers and inventors. Edinburgh Gin is an artful distillation, capturing the spirit of these luminaries while respecting and paying tribute to their unique sense of place; inspiring them to create a world-class portfolio of gins and liqueurs.

This is a classic London Dry style gin. A clean, zesty, juniper-forward gin which balances softness with bright citrus. Launched in 2010, this is a modern London Dry gin, with a nod to Scotland in its recipe including native plants and botanicals.

A unique blend of fourteen botanicals includes lavender, pine buds, mulberries and cobnuts. Orange peel, lemongrass and lime peel contribute lively citrus notes. Created by hand in their West End and Leith distilleries, this is a delightfully crisp gin with a distinctively smooth finish.

Bottled at 43% ABV, this classic Edinburgh Gin makes for a refreshing G&T, best served with a zesty orange twist and premium Indian tonic water. Its distinctive flavour lends itself perfectly to classic cocktails such as Martinis, Negronis, and Gimlets.

Gilt Single Malt Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Gilt gin is the result of a meeting of minds. A Scotsman and a Spaniard were in a bar. As we know from experience the conversation often turns to drink in these situations. They dreamt of the idea of a gin. A Scottish gin produced from only the finest malt barley and botanicals of the highest standard. Botanicals that will marry with the base spirit to create one of the most outstanding craft gins. A bespoke still would need to be used to enhance the natural flavours and bring this marriage of premium raw materials together. The Scotsman scurried home and locked himself away in the still house, determined to create a gin to surpass the Spaniard's exacting standards. Twelve months later Gilt Gin was born.

This delightful Scottish Gin is produced from only the finest malt barley and botanicals of the highest standard. The signature of this gin is the light citrus botanicals with the balance of fine flavour that meets the standards of the most discerning taste. The taste is dry with punches of juniper and Cardamom, leaving a warm thirst quenching finish.

Makar Glasgow Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

The multi award-winning Makar Original Gin is the first gin to be distilled in the city of Glasgow.

Embracing the characteristics of the city itself, Makar is a bold, vibrant, juniper-led gin that derives its name from the ancient Scots word for ‘the maker’ or craftsman.

Seven sides to Makar’s bottle represent the seven carefully-selected botanicals which perfectly compliment the world’s finest Juniper which lies at the heart of Makar. These botanicals are distilled in small batches in their copper still, Annie, to produce a perfectly-balanced juniper-led Gin.

Makar Original Dry Gin is perfect at the centre of a gin-led cocktail, alternatively try with a high-quality tonic water, finished with a slice of mild green chilli.

Monkey 47 Gin - Germany (1x 50cl)

Is this just another gin? Certainly not! Admittedly, it appears somewhat eccentric to claim that a recipe for gin has the power to unite great British traditions, the exoticness of India, and the purity and nativeness of the Black Forest. And yet it is precisely this eccentricity that defines the enigmatic character of Montgomery Collins, from whom the Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. Monkey 47 - Distilled from 47 predominantly unusual but regional botanicals such as lingonberries and blended with natural spring water.

A good third of this gin's ingredients come from the Black Forest itself and are definitely not what you would find in a typical gin! Along with bramble leaves and spruce shoots, Montgomery Collins also chose to include angelica, acacia flower, camomile, rose hip peel, sage, verbena, and hawthorn berries in his closely guarded recipe. The commander's original ground-breaking idea for creating a new type of gin was based on combining exotic spices with botanicals native to the Black Forest.

The key to this eccentric blend, however, is another local staple that seems both surprising and yet made to enhance the right gin. Would you have guessed that the cranberry is what gives Monkey 47 its definitive twist? All the basic aromas you'd want from a good gin - refreshing acidity, lasting bitter notes, and a slight sweetness - can be found among the natural strengths of this tart fruit. It's that certain something that marries the rich untamed nature of the Black Forest's upper reaches to the extravagance of the British Empire.

Pampero Blanco Rum - Venezuela (1x 70cl)

Back in 1938, two friends with a passion for making rum decided to go their own way. Using oak barrels to pioneer a new ageing process, their rums took on such depth and smooth complexity, that even the government were convinced and changed the very laws of rum-making to enhance its quality. The benchmark for future generations was set, and Venezuelan rum was redefined forever.

Locally grown sugar cane reaches the distillery within 24 hours, ensuring the flavour and sugar content of their molasses remain of the highest quality. Their Amazonian location gives them an excellent source of natural mineral water, which is critical to the final quality of the rum. Unlike many distilleries, Pampero continues to use three different distillation processes for a purer, higher quality rum. After its initial distillation, the alcohol can be made 'lighter' or 'heavier' by undergoing its second and third distillations in a column, kettle, or pot still. Venezuela's high humidity, high temperatures, and nightly temperature drops provide intensive ageing conditions all year round, leading to a maturation rate approximately three times greater than that of scotch or cognac.

There’s more to Pampero Blanco than meets the eye. A good white rum should be fresh, clean, easy to mix and easy to drink. Blanco is all of these, but it’s also an aged rum, made from a blend of traditional white rum aged for up to 4 years. 

Unlike most white rums which are distilled in column stills, the heavier rums of the Blanco blend are distilled in traditional copper pot stills, like those used for Scotch Whisky. Ex-whisky white oak casks lend Blanco its fruity notes and originally a golden colour, which is later removed through charcoal filtering. It is a Light, creamy and simple rum with flavours of blackcurrant, candy floss, green apple, banana, toffee and vanilla.

Pickerings Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Pickering's Gin is based on an old Bombay recipe, handwritten on a fragment of paper dated 17 July 1947. Kept as a family secret for over 66 years, it only resurfaced in 2013 when distilling began at Summerhall, right in the heart of Edinburgh. When Pickering's opened Summerhall Distillery, it was the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years. Their gin is based on an original 1947 recipe. It features nine Bombay botanicals, engineered by us to create Pickering’s famous full-bodied flavour with perfect bitter-sweet balance.

Believe it or not, Pickering's gin only came into being in 2013.  Before that, Matt and Marcus (the founders) had been friends and business partners for years, with backgrounds in engineering, furniture restoration and property renovation. They were working at Summerhall when they spotted the derelict dogs kennels from the small animal hospital that once stood in the middle of the old Royal (Dick) Veterinary School. What to do with it? As fate would have it, Marcus had recently inherited a gin recipe from a friend of his late father. Hmmm… The next step seemed obvious. They built the distillery then, despite having no background in distilling, kept trying, testing and experimenting until they succeeded. 

By the time they launched it in 2014, Pickerings had fine-tuned the recipe, perfecting its balance of botanicals and tweaking it to the contemporary palate. The result is a spectacularly smooth, refreshing and flavoursome gin. It is fresh, light and bold flavours of citrus and juniper give way to intense warming spice of cardamom, coriander seed and clove. We recommend that Pickering's is served with ice, tonic and a slice of pink grapefruit. (or anything else that takes your fancy!)

Pinkster Agreeable British Gin (1x 70cl)

It all came about when Pinkster's founder Stephen realised wine and beer no longer agreed with him. A keen maker of sloe liqueurs and other concoctions, he turned his attention to spirits and started experimenting at home, mashing assorted fruits with different spirit strengths.

He wasn't intentionally creating a pink drink, it's just that after working his way through an entire fruit bowl, raspberry delivered the best flavour.

G&J Distillers, one of the world’s oldest gin distilleries, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to the original recipe. They then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh, plump raspberries grown locally to Pinkster's rural base outside Cambridge.

Judging by Pinkster's growing band of admirers, it certainly seems that people are ready for something a little unusual to tickle their taste buds.

Pinkster makes a refreshingly different G&T, with a wonnderfully delicate flavour that appeals both to seasoned gin drinkers and recent converts.

As they say at Pinkster - "Welcome to the natural gin with a mischievous grin!"

The Botanist Islay Dry Gin - Scotland - quarter bottle (1x 20cl)

Islay, the Hebridean home of The Botanist clings to the edge of the ocean in the teeth of Atlantic weather systems. The team at Bruichladdich (who make The Botanist) have the following ethos that they share. "We believe our spirits should have character; and authenticity derived from where they are distilled and the philosophies of those who distil them." 

The Botanist is a gin of layered complexity and is the result of a progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of the Isle of Islay. 22 hand foraged local botanicals including creeping thistle, lemon balm, red clover and wood sage delicately augment nine different berries barks, seeds and peels during a long, slow distillation. This gin is a true expression of the nature of Islay.

The spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience. This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a starburst of flavours as they explode across the palate.

Williams Chase Extra Dry GB Gin - England (1x 70cl)

The Williams Chase farm is based in Herefordshire, a county that boasts some of the richest farmland in the world. It is here they grow King Edward, Lady Claire and Lady Rosetta potatoes for the distillery. "Having the distillery located on the farm allows us to keep a watchful eye over how our potatoes move from field to bottle. It is this single-estate approach that makes us truly different – something you can taste in our award-winning vodka and gin."

Not many people know that gin is made from vodka (or neutral spirit). Unlike most distilleries, they make their spirits from scratch rather than buying in a readymade neutral grain spirit. People care about the terroir of their wines or the barrel ageing of their whiskies, so why shouldn’t they care about the traceability of their white spirits? They are even able to tell you in which field your vodka and gin came from.

In the bespoke copper gin still, Ginny, they add 10 botanicals into the carter head for vapour infusion through the spirit as well as 2 of their botanicals in the belly of the still giving a different complexity to this gin. Most distilleries are trying to use botanicals to mask the base spirit in their gin, whereas they use botanicals to draw out the best aspects and compliment the mineral earthiness in their potato spirit. For GB gin they infuse juniper buds and berries to ensure that we distil the driest gin possible, followed by cinnamon, ginger, almond, coriander, cardamom, cloves, angelica root, liquorice root and lemon to ensure a distinct, full and robust flavour. This smooth yet bursting with flavour gin creates a bittersweet symphony with a good mediterranean tonic.

The aromas are of zesty citrus and warm spicy notes. The palate has flavours of juniper, lemon and rich spices. The finish is full bodied with an extra dry finish.
