Ginato Clementino Gin

Ginato Clementino Gin (43% vol) is a bright and vibrant gin made with Nebbiolo grape, Italian clementine orange and Tuscan juniper berries.

Leading with a floral and orange peel aroma that makes way to flavours of fresh clementine, cherry and rose with hints of lingering grapefruit on the finish.

Ginato gins are distilled with passion, using the entire length and breadth of Italy, with earthy juniper berries from the rolling hills of Tuscany, juicy sun-ripened clementine oranges from the south of Italy and, for a unique twist, the finest Pinot Grigio grapes from the Friuli in the north.

Blessed with over 50 years of distilling heritage, the Ginato distillery is situated in Ravenna, within the northern Italian province of Emilia Romagna, a diverse region home to seaside towns, historic cities and incredible Italian food!
This light and fresh, sunny gin exudes the true essence of Italy.

6 O’clock Gin – London Dry

Strikingly smooth 6 O’clock Gin – London Dry (43% vol) has a clean flavour led by juniper.

Elegant, crisp and refreshing 6 O’clock artisan gin is a classic London Dry handcrafted in small batches, using traditional skills and only the best natural ingredients.

Smooth to taste and beautiful to behold in its iconic Bristol-blue glass bottle, this original award-winning London Dry was born in 2010, perfected from an old family gin recipe. The name was inspired by the distillers long-held family tradition of indulging in a G&T at 6 O’clock; a custom still enjoyed at the distillery and shared by gin-lovers all over the world.

It has a soft and citrusy flavour, led by juniper, carefully balances with coriander seed, angelica root, orris root, winter savory, elderflower, orange peel, and subtle spice all lovingly distilled for a deeply-delicious taste experience.

8 Reasons Why Dry GINuary is Better For You Than Dry January

Do of course take the below with a pinch of salt! We are not medical professionals, and the article is intended as entertainment only.

With Dry January being mentioned all over the place we thought we’d give you 8 reasons why DryGinuary (where you spend the month celebrating Gin!) might just be better for you. I’m sure we’ve all read that a small glass of red might be good for you, so now lets see what our favourite friend Gin has to offer!

1. Drinking gin may help stop wrinkles & reduces ageing!

Juniper berries have high levels of antioxidants, which can help you stay healthy, fight wrinkles and keep you looking youthful. We can’t promise drinking gin will directly lead to this but the juniper berry is a powerful little thing that can also help cell regeneration and also reduce inflammation. (source)

This is Christmas! Copperfield Gin

“Turning up his cuffs – as if, poor fellow, they were capable of being made any more shabby – [he] compounded some hot mixture in a jug with gin and lemons and stirred it round and round and put it on the hob to simmer.”

From Charles Dickens to Catherine Miller, gin has always held a connection with Christmas in the literary world. Of course, we firmly believe that transfers into our literal festive sphere, and we are very excited to share this time with you all!

This is Christmas!

Copperfield gin is hand-bottled and hand-labelled. Embellished with a stunning illustration of interwoven botanicals overlaid with rich copper foiling and pays homage to book covers from the late 19th century.

Dr Christopher Smart and his wife Professor Katherine Smart launched the Surrey Copper Distillery in 2018, and created a gin based on a recipe penned by Ambrose Cooper in his Complete Distiller first published in 1757. This gin brings history to life!
