London Dry Gin


Cumberland Saucy Gin (Episode 182)

We taste the Cumberland Saucy Gin.

The gin is a full-on gin which bites back with alcohol burn even though on the nose there was no suggestion of how strong it would taste.

However, after a few sips, the effect dies down enabling you to enjoy the taste more.

Although the gin has a very sweet smell that doesn’t come through when tasting.

We both enjoyed the gin more when the tonic was added, which seemed to allow the taste of the orange peel to shine through.

Locksley Distilling Dry Gins (Episode 161 – Part 2)

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.

Divine Gin Special (Episode 176 – Part 1)

We had the privilege of tasting a very special limited edition of oak-aged gin from the House of Divine.

Only 50 bottles of this very limited special gin have just been created by the House of Divine Gin.

The gin has been left standing in a Laphroaig oak barrel to create a drink that some would argue was a gin whilst others a whiskey.

In fact, it sits in between these two classifications as a unique taste all of it’s own.

For anyone that likes something special, this is for them, very limited and very special!

If it should become available you should be able to find it on Divines website, (https://www.divinegin.com) but I am sure if Ray does release this wonderful unique creation they will be snapped up faster than you can say “gone”!
