Edinburgh Dry Gin
On the nose, this Gin smells fresh and clean. On the palate we taste pleasant citrus fruit, a powerful texture and a ginger-like spiciness. The alcoholic strength by volume of 43%, holds the herbs tightly, what ensures a great game between the juniper, citrus notes and pine cone, heather and thistles causes. Lingers in a full finish.
Once the distillation is complete and has been tasted for quality and consistency, final distillations of rose and cucumber are added to this Gin. Cucumber and rose petals bring something new to the Gin taste spectrum enhancing the classic juniper and citrus flavours with fresh, floral, slightly aromatic notes and a silky smooth texture. Hendrick’s is handcrafted in small batches in an original 19th century pot still.

Monkey 47 Dry Gin
An unusual Gin from the Black Forest in Germany, Monkey 47 contains Cranberries as a unique ingredient. The ‘47’ comes from the number of botanicals that go into this unique Gin, as well as the fact it's bottled at 47% alcohol. In 2011 Monkey 47 won the World Spirits Award Gold in the Gin category and Gold for best in class for the Gin Worldwide at the International Wine and Spirits Competition London.
This award winning Gin initially gives a juniper-rich bouquet that is backed up with rich grain spirit. Top notes of Cardamom and Orange blossom are evident with a hint of Cinnamon. The initial focus is Juniper, but the more earthy botanicals can be discovered too. The mouthfeel is exceptionally creamy. In the finish the juniper subsides and gives way to the Cardamom and Cinnamon, with a late resurgence from orange peel.
G'Vine Floraison Gin
Among botanicals, infused with Ugni Blanc grape. For the nose, the grape notes are prevalent, but there are balancing notes of citrus and cardamom. Even in the palate the grapes take the lead. It's tasty with pronounced, fresh botanicals, particularly the high, citric and ginger notes. The grapes add a pleasant sweetness. It's almost like a flavoured vodka. The finish is very clean and pleasant with herbs and grassy notes with a slight mineral taste.
The 4 ‘Mediterranean’ botanicals are evident immediately upon nosing this gin, with the rosemary in particular standing out. However, the juniper is still playing a starring role and is complemented rather than dominated by the other botanicals. The savoury, herbal elements are immediately evident, with the rosemary again taking centre stage alongside the classic juniper backbone. A lightness is created by the citrus and basil with a savoury olive undertone. There is a good depth of flavour and a lingering olive and thyme.
Plymouth - Navy strength
A Crystal Clear Gin with an intense, bold nose and fresh aroma of juniper, followed by notes of coriander and cardamom. The palate is full bodied, smooth and flavourful with a slight sweetness and an aromatic, long and rich finish.
Nolet - Silver, Dry Gin
This Dutch gin has a soft, delicate, yet rich profile that begins with the rose-laden fragrance accented with fresh peach and a slight hint of pine. On the palate, this Gin follows suit with raspberry shining through ever so gently and an interesting, gentle mix of juniper, orris root, and licorice hanging out in the background. The dry finish is where the juniper becomes less transparent, leaving the experience with welcomed familiarity.
