Now we’re absolutely not saying that these gins are exactly the same as the ones we’ve paired them with. They have similarities in style but the flavours are carried very differently.
Take a peek, and work out what you want to try next!
Gordon’s isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but it is the first gin that most of us ever tried, and for many, it’s a steady go to. If you enjoy the strong juniper and citrus of Gordon’s then try Phipps Kingswell Gin. It’s a solid London Dry gin. Juniper and citrus perfectly balanced with a touch of peppery heat.
Bombay Sapphire is renowned for being a light and incredibly aromatic gin, to the point where it’s commonly referred to as ‘perfumed’. Pink Pepper is an absolute beauty; intensely aromatic and inspired by the very process of perfumery. It’s an incredibly versatile gin that begins as something fresh and spicy but mellows into a soft, sweetness.
Reliably light with a good burst of citrus, Beefeater is a great, staple; Yerburgh’s Jam Jar Gin takes the light floral tones and citrus a step further, adding into the mix, a long creamy finish and brilliantly sharp, summer strawberries.
Much like Tanqueray, Jawbox Gin is citrusy, smooth and impeccably balanced. Both gins work wonderfully in G&Ts, over ice and in classic and contemporary cocktails, thanks to a range of high-quality ingredients and a dedication to making exceptional gins.
If you're a Gin Festival fan you've no doubt discovered Brockmans. One of our most popular gins, Brockmans is a seductively smooth and well-balanced gin with noticeable berry flavours. It makes a great introduction to craft gins, but if you want to try something that packs the same berry aroma while being wildly different, look no further than Sikkim Bilberry. Sikkim Bilberry is a beautifully distilled gin with aromas of tea, bilberries and juniper and a sweet fruity taste on the palate.
