First launched in July 2013, 5 botanicals are used to create Pinkster (the "Agreeably British Gin"). The brainchild of Stephen Marsh, Pinkster is made with delicious raspberries which are steeped in the gin, lending it both its pink hue and subtle fruitiness.
The West Winds Sabre (40% ABV) is a uniquely Australian take on a traditional London Dry Gin. The flavours in this bright, aromatic gin are led by an undercurrent of Citrus with a dominance of Juniper, followed by the classic Coriander seed. The addition of Wattle Seed adds a depth to the mid palate and introduces a creamy texture to the gin. Perfect as a classic G&T with Lemon to release the intricacies of this uniquely styled gin.
Originally created in 1928 by Firmin Filliers, Filliers Dry Gin 28 also uses 28 botanicals in addition to juniper. It is a small batch gin created in copper stills.
The Filliers family had been producing jenever, gin's ancestor, in Belgium since the 19th century and adding gin to their repertoire was perhaps the next logical step. Today, their gin is still made with a secret blend of citrus fruits, herbs and roots.
From the clever minds and talented hands that brought us Dictador Rum comes an aged Colombian gin. Using a botanical selection based on the limon mandarino, a hybrid between a mandarin orange and a lemon, they have created a wonderful, citrus-forward gin and given it the rather regal name, Treasure. After distillation, it is aged in rum barrels for 35 weeks to enhance and round out the flavours.
When Will and Lucy Lowe launched this Japanese gin, they were creating and selling the first gin to be made exclusively from Japanese botanicals.

Made from the following botanicals: Yuzu peel - providing refreshing citrus notes Shiso leaf - the herbaceous heart of the gin Toasted white sesame - gives texture and body Shansho pepper - delivers a complex, gentle spiced base note As with all of the Cambridge Distillery Gins, each batch is distilled individually in volumes of less than two litres,...

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.

ClemenGold Gin is named for the signature flavor of the South African Mandarin Orange also called a Clemengold. With the orange and the signature juniper, it includes botanicals of orange zest, cinnamon, honey, almond, angelica, orris root, and coriander. This strikes us as a classic dry style of gin with citrus forward notes familiar to enthusiasts of gins from the Mediterranean. Hope on Hopkins Distillery was founded on the elusive dream of many white-collar workers toiling in cubicle walls: Lucy Beard and Leigh Lisk "abandoned" London to found the distillery in Cape Town, South Africa for the purpose of making...
Junipero Traditional Pot-Still Gin is a self-described "classic" gin, made with the traditional dominant characteristic of juniper but including an additional dozen botanicals producing a "light, crisp and clean" gin with a "deep and mysterious spiciness." Anchor Brewers & Distillers was founded as Anchor Brewing Company and is somewhat of an iconic beer brand, creating a great deal of enthusiasm for the craft-brewing movement in general. Anchor Distilling was established in 1993 to create specific, craft-distilled spirits as part of the company's overall portfolio. The founding of the company is credited to Gottlieb Brekle--of German descent--in 1854, who later sold...
Rutte Celery Dry Gin starts as the classic, traditional dry style gin featuring a botanical mix of juniper and other classic botanicals. To this, they add celery leaf... note, this is not flavored with celery but rather the leaf of celery used in the botanical mix. They suggest looking for flavors notes of anise and salt on the finish. 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 Holland operating in the modern era,...
Caorunn Gin (pronounced: "kay-roon") is a Scottish gin made at the whisky distillery Balmenach in Speyside. It is made from grain--presumably barley--and infused with 11 botanicals including heather, bog myrtle, rowan berry, dandelion, and coul blush apple, which are all considered to be Celtic for a "truly Scottish gin." (We must assume—it being a gin—that there is a healthy dose of juniper as well.) The brand is overseen by Inver House Distillers, itself a subsidiary of International Beverage Holdings Limited. In the January, 2014 edition of Tasting Panel Magazine, Anthony Dias Blue gave it a somewhat rare 95pt rating and remarked, "I...

Pink Gin from the Gin Lane 1751 range, which harks back to the Victorian era with its style and flavour profile. This is made by infusing their gin with bitters, giving it a good kick of spice, as well as the pink hue from which the style of gin takes its name. Gin Lane 1751 takes its name from the Gin Act of 1751 and the William Hogarth painting of Gin Lane.
This London Dry Gin, repackaged and rejuvenated under new ownership in 2013, takes its name from Boodle's gentleman’s club in St. James's, London and is now produced at the Greenalls distillery.
Famous members of Boodle's gentleman’s club included former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and James Bond author Ian Fleming, which of course makes Boodles an obvious choice for a Vesper.
Fishers combines rare old English herbs and botanicals found along the Suffolk coast. Their botanist, James Firth, having studied Botany at Oxford University has dedicated his life to England’s plants and their environments.
