A Gin Tour Of The UK- The UK’s Finest & Secret Gin-erys
We are a nation of classy and innovative Gin drinkers and the UK is dotted with some global quality bars that specialise in that thing we hold so dear. . . Gin! After a tipple or 2, we thought to ourselves, I wonder how many secret Gin-erys there are around the UK, I mean some bars wish to remain secret but just like a terrible tabloid journalist in an ol’ timey news office, “We are busting this story wide open” and bringing some of the UK’s best kept secrets to you fine people. No doubt you have a favourite spot to visit in your local area but we thought, why not make our way around the UK.
250 years of distilling experience should be enough to launch a new exceptional range, right?
We have tried and tested them for you – these Gins won’t disappoint! The Gins we’re bringing to you this month are the product of the eighth generation Master Distiller Johnny Neill – the creator of the delicious Whitley Neill Gin!
What makes this London Dry so special? The answers lies in the “Spirit of Harrogate” that confers it a whole lot of heritage, tradition and history.
William’s Gin is the product of the evolution of great British produce, potatoes! It is the 3rd invention of the gourmand William Chase and, as EVERYONE loves the previous two, we are sure that GB Extra Dry Gin and Elegant 48 Gin will delight the most demanding palates.
Founded by the two brothers Andy and Martin Dawson in 1998, Broker’s is an exceptional gin and just like the British humour, it is delightfully dry. The very well balanced recipe is 200 years old and, despite the various attempts to modernize it, it cannot possibly be improved…
Kokoro is an exceptional British London Dry Gin with a Japanese heart, where the spirit of the forest lies. The ingredient that makes this gin recognisable and incredibly enjoyable comes all the way from the Afan woods in the land of rising sun! Its story is one of love and respect for something that we too often take for granted, the environment we live in and what it has to offer.
How many Gin bottles do you reckon one needs to own to have a good collection? And how many should there be in the Gin cupboard to be deemed gin obsessed? We have done some research and our lovely Facebook followers have helped us to reach a conclusion. Variety is important but the display plays a big part in our decision – These are the most worshipped Gin bottles that we have ever come across!
