Brokers premium Well what can i say about this gin, it really is a gentleman of the gin world which is why it probably has been awarded its top hat, it aims to please and deliver and boy it does! From the first pour you can smell the citrus ingredients and it is the first time i have really come across orange aromas as well as lemon and lime,.It has a spicy alore but only this really comes through towards the end of your sip, its traditional and classic. Try it with some fresh red berries or even frozen berries instead of ice as the berries melt the juices turn the drink a lovely colour and taste amazing!
Try this with brokers..

Here are some of the wonderful gins you will find in our flavour selection tin of gin .......
6 O'Clock Damson Gin -6 O'Clock Damson Gin is typically made in exactly the same way as the Sloe Gin, however the use of the damsons gives this Gin a slightly smoother sweeter drink. Its perfect if you like to drink it neat as it is very similar to a liqueur. The damson comes through in sweet notes andit is almost jammy with tastes of berries and cherries!..... I have tried this added to some prosecco or champagne the dryness of the wine goes wonderful with the gin, but the sweetness of the damson gives it a little tickle. for a touch of glamour finish off with a cherry or a strawberry.
Edgerton blue spiced gin -The Blue Spice Gin has earthy flavour to it, whilst still retaining its award winning qualities.
The Edgerton Blue Spice Gin uses 17 different botanicals in a triple-distilling process to give it a more complexed, well-balanced flavour. Hints of lavender, citrus peel and spices such as black peppercorns make way for the botanicals of Fenugreek and Cardamom to leave a warm spicy finish. This gin hits the spot its not spicy in a way that you think and do not be put off as you will be pleasantly surprised! The gin is so versatile, its earthy to mix well with a ginger beer but citrusy to mix well with tonic... personally i like this with a bit of ginger beer,and there are not many gins that i like with orange juice but this one taste lovely with some OJ!

This gin is perfect for BBQ's sunny days and with friends. for a good balance of sweet and sharp Its perfect with a cold bubbly tonic, but works really well with most gin cocktails.

Raisthorpe Rhubarb Gin hand crafted using traditional methods and to the highest quality. A wonderfully fresh, fragrant Gin which has a delicate rose colour with intense Rhubarb aromas. Its smells like a pudding in a bottle but do not be to put off buy the intense sweet smell, when mixed its just right! Its very drinkable and goes down very .... VERY well, The rhubarb isn't to overpowering, its more of an undertone, but when combined with the smell and the taste this gin has a permanant place within my top ten. I love how you can drink this straight or mix it with almost everything, try it with tonic water and a bit of fresh rubbed mint or as a pretty pale pink martini.
