In this episode, we taste some more fantastic dry gins, this time from the Locksley Distilling Company, the Sir Robin of Locksley Gin and their VSOT – Navy Strength, Old Tom Gin.
The Sir Robin of Locksley Gin sits somewhere in between an Old Tom Gin and a Dry Gin in sweetness terms and very nice it is too.
The gin was deliciously smooth when drunk neat and makes a very refreshing G&T.
The VSOT, at 57.5% is a beast of a Gin but still manages to be fantastically smooth and full of exciting flavours. The VSOT was so delicious neat that we both thought we would not enjoy it as much with tonic, but we were both wrong! We both enjoyed the G&T version just as much, this really is one to try if you have not already.
