Aber Falls gin
This globally award-winning gin has been expertly crafted using Welsh water and infused with botanical ingredients from across North Wales. Whilst Aber Falls is probably most well-known for their whisky, they have a brilliant range of dry and flavoured gins to drink too.
Berkshire Botanical gin
Made using botanicals growing on the stunning 9,000 acre Yattendon Estate in West Berkshire, Berkshire Botanical gin is definitely one you should try. All of their different gins are copper pot distilled and then gently infused with botanicals, so you can really taste the flavours.
Whitley Neill gin
You will probably recognise this brand and Whitley Neill has a fresh 21st-century outlook on gin. They are one of the most favoured brands on the market for flavoured gins and they have an innovative selection available. This multi-award winning brand is always one you can rely on.
Handcrafted in Germany with rare African botanicals, this is a premium gin brand that you might not have heard of before. All of Elephant gin’s ingredients are hand-selected, their bottles are custom-made and their labels hand-written, you can really tell they care about their gin and the people who are drinking it.
Harrogate Tipple gin
This is another small-batch distillery and you will find Harrogate Tipple in the Ripley Castle Estate in Harrogate. Most of their botanicals are grown in the 750-year-old gardens within the Castle walls and they have some unique flavours, such as blueberry and gooseberry, to try.
Suntory Roku gin
Many know the name Suntory as a pioneer of Japanese Whisky, but again, this is a brand that has branched out to gin too. Roku translates as the number six and inside every bottle of gin, you will find six botanicals that are sourced in Japan. Many of the high-quality ingredients are also uniquely Japanese, so it isn’t your standard gin.
Fire & Ice gin
As craft distillers, Fire & Ice ensure authenticity throughout their brand by using more natural homegrown ingredients in their spirits. Their gin is as much about the people behind the product as it is the finished spirit, and it encompasses their heritage of being Highland Crofters.
This gin is inspired by the adventurous spirit of the merchants travelling thousands of miles to trade exotic spices and botanicals from distant lands. OPIHR gin is crafted with hand-picked botanicals in the oldest distillery in England where gin has been traditionally made since 1761.
