World Gin Day

Saturday 10th of June World Gin Day so a  day when Gin lovers of the world can rejoice and indulge in their favourite tipple.

The concept behind the celebration is simple: get people enjoying gin together all over the world.

And with the explosion over the past couple of years in the range of gins available its a great opportunity to sample a few new brands.

Here are some of my favourites…..

SteamPunk Gin

Winner of the Gin Masters Award in 2016 this spirit is brewed in Gateshead by Steampunk Ltd.  A producer of small-batch, hand crafted gins in the wonderful North East of England, within a mile of the Angel of the North.

The brand claims to have resurrected the gin recipe developed in 1892, by Sir Raleigh Holmes-Dunston.  The tipple was designed to appeal to the highest echelons of polite society. Smooth on the palate, with juniper, cardomom and citrus melting together in perfect harmony, this gin is a sensation!

No.3 

No.3 is a London Dry Gin distilled to a proprietary recipe of Berry Bros. & Rudd, London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant.  The name No.3 refers to the address in St James’s Street, London: home to merchants since 1698.

Flavour profile – With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of a classic London Dry Gin: six perfectly balanced botanicals distilled in traditional copper pot stills.

Hendricks Gin

And finally a gin with one of the quirkiest of brands.  Produced by William Grant and Sons in a restored Carter-Head Still, Hendricks gin has a much sweeter cucumber flavour than its competitors.
