Brooklyn Gin is an homage to the Brooklyn Distilling Company first founded in 1895 but closed shortly thereafter. It was founded anew by Angel "Joe" Santos, who has partnered with Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery to make the best gin possible. In his own words, "I cut, pulp, and peel all of my citrus fruits. I crack open my juniper berries by hand. After we distill, we fill, cork, and label the bottles by hand. I go door-to-door to local bars and liquor stores to sample my gin and hand deliver every bottle." The gin itself is a traditional London...

Tanqueray Ten Gin - 70cl€49,95
To complement their iconic flagship brand, Tanqueray No. 10 gin was first launched in 2000 to appeal specifically to martini drinkers. It has a much heavier, classic juniper scent. It also has the unique character of being one of the few gins made with fresh citrus botanicals including grapefruit, lemon, and lime. Geoff Kleinman of Drink Spirits has a long and informative comparison between No. 10 and the classic gin summarizing, "Tanqueray London Dry Gin is all about how just a few botanicals can come together around juniper to make a complex and flavorful gin, while Tanqueray No. Ten Gin...
Tanqueray Gin 43.1% 70cl€31,95
Tanqueray was first made by Charles Tanqueray in London beginning in 1830. Eventually, WWII destroyed most of the distillery and its remnant were relocated to Scotland, where it is made today. Tanqueray was one of the first distilleries to use double-distillation methods (later, triple-distillation and today quadruple-distilled) as well as being one of the very first "premium" gins on the market. Charles Tanqueray was preceded by Alexander Gordon and his Gordon's gin from as far back as 1769 and a warrant from King George himself in 1925. The two companies were combined to Tanqueray Gordon & Company in 1898. Tanqueray...
Hendricks gin 70cl€39,99
Hendricks is an idiosyncratically produced small-batch gin distilled in Ayrshire, Scotland. The unusual distillation process combined with the oddly delicious set of infusions yields a one-of-a-kind gin that is passionately loved by a tiny yet growing handful of individuals all over the world. No other gin tastes like it because no other gin is made like it.
Brockmans Premium Gin 70cl€53,95
First launched in 2008 aimed at the younger crowds of updscale bars, Brockmans Gin was a collaboration between several friends who wanted to create a "contemporary gin" that would be so "intensely smooth" that it could be drunk on its own over ice. It is made with an infusion of 10 different botanicals that include Bulgarian coriander but also (unusually) fruit characteristics of blueberry, blackberry, and Valencia orange zest. For this reason, we have opted to classify this as a "modern" gin. We're unclear at the moment where Brockmans is actually produced (or who "Brockman" is). From a press release...
Scapegrace Gin Classic 42.4% 70cl€23,42
Scapegrace Gin is produced out of New Zealand. The gin is the in the classic, London dry style featuring juniper, orange, lemon, coriander, nutmeg, cardamom, liquorice, angelica, cloves, orris, cinnamon, cassia, and tangerine. These are all classic ingredients though suggest a slightly citrus-forward profile. They are particularly proud of the water, which they regard as the most natural and pure on earth after resting in mountain aquifers. The name is a reference or synonym for "rogue" and a nod to the sordid history of gin-making through the 19th century. Rogue Society Distilling Company was founded in New Zealand for the...
Bobby's Dry Gin 70cl€44,99
Bobby's Gin is named for Jacobus "Bobby" Alfons, grandfather of Sebastiaan van Bokkel who founded the brand. The gin is made blends traditional London dry style botanicals (juniper, fennel, rose hip, coriander) with Indonesian spices (lemongrass, cloves, cubeb pepper, cinnamon). This strikes us a spicier profile against the traditional juniper-forward background. Even the bottle is meant to be a combination of East and West with a genever style bottle designed with Indonesian patterns. The gin is produced out of Herman Jansen in the Netherlands.
Musgrave Pink Gin 75cl€49,99
Musgrave Pink Gin is named for Simone Musgrave, who selected the botanicals for the gin and worked with distillers Roger Jorgensen and Lucy Beard to formulate it. It begis with the same botanicals that are meant to be an homage to the "African spice route" (cardamom, African ginger (white mondel), and grains of paradise among others). It's then given an addition of rose water to give it a distinctive pink color. It is bottled at a slightly higher 86 proof, a bottling strength familiar to single malt scotch enthusiasts. Hope on Hopkins Distillery was founded on the elusive dream of...

Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin - 70cl€46,00
Opihr Oriental Spiced gin is one of a very few flavored gins in the world. It is named for the the legendary Opihr region that lay along the spice route in biblical times. The "spiced flavor" comes from oriental spices such as cubeb berries, black pepper, and coriander... these being somewhat unusual botanicals in the customary gin repertoire. Other more traditional flavor notes include citrus, grapefruit, cumin, and cardamon (along with, we presume, the signature juniper). The gin is made at G&J Greenall of Englad while the Brand is owned by Quintessential Brands of England.
Glendalough Rose Gin - 70cl€37,00
This fresh, rose-petal gin was first made to honour the head distiller's mum, Rose, at his little brother's wedding. Rose had recently passed away, and this was his way to have her there in spirit - literally. Carefully-tended flowers, from her rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from the mountains around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin. After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavours and give it its lovely pink hue. This is not "just another pink gin", far from it. The depth...
Whitley Neil Gin Rhubarb & Ginger 70cl€41,00
Whitley Neill is a gin that prides itself with unusual flavors that are "African inspired but in 2018, they launched their Rhubarb and Gin that is redolent of English countryside. The expression, with a flash of ginger to "warm the palate." Botanicals include juniper, orange, lemon, orris, coriander, angelica, rhubarb, ginger, and licorice... this strikes us as a very traditional citrus style London dry gin with the addition of rhubarb and ginger. Whitley Neill makes and distributes the gin that was "inspired in Africa." It was first founded in 2004 by Johnny Neill to "fulfill a lifelong dream" of making...
Thin Gin 70cl€36,99

Siegfried Dry Gin 50cl€16,17
Siegfried Rheinland Dry Gin is named for the epic hero of the Nibelungenlied, Siegfried. They note that in the story, a linden tree leaf falls on Siegfried's back while he is "enjoying his bath in the blood of a dragon." To close the loop, they use linden blossoms in their gin. The botanical mix strikes us as a traditional dry style, noting juniper, bitter orange, thyme, cardamon, ginger, angelica, and lavender among others.
Rutte Old Simon Genever 70cl€50,90
Rutte Old Simon Genever is said to be the founding recipe from the founder Simone Rutte and named for him. With juniper, it includes walnuts, hazelnuts, coriander, angelica, mace, berries, and a set of secret botanicals. This is an unusual blend for contemporary dry gin, particularly with respect to nuts. It is bottled a milder 70 proof and could possibly be considered a flavored gin. Rutte Distillateurs is named for the Rutte family, beginning with Simon Rutte in 1872 beginning with gin. The company has been through 7 generations of Rutte owners and regards themselves as the smallest distillery in...
