Gin is enjoying a remarkable growth in popularity; 2018 was another record year for British gin production with exports exceeding £567 million.
British gin exports have more than doubled since 2008, with our gin manufacturers dominating the EU market and with gin sales growing rapidly in the USA and the Far East.
The Gin Guild has identified around 280 active gin distilleries across Britain and over 860 UK gin brands!
With so many gin brands to choose from why not try something different this weekend?
Here are five of our favourite tipples.
Infused with the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers. Distilled in Scotland
TREVETHAN CORNISH GIN
Bold in flavour with subtle citrus and floral notes. Includes botanicals sourced from our the hedgerows in the Cornish countryside.
OPIHR ORIENTAL SPICED GIN
Made in the oldest distillery in England, where the botanicals are married with fine English spirit to produce an exotic oriental spiced gin.
BARRA ATLANTIC GIN
The spirit of Barra people inspires this unique gin. The main botanical, carrageen seaweed, is collected wild on the shores of the Isle of Barra.
MASONS DRY YORKSHIRE GIN
Delicately soft juniper and lavender mix with fresh lime and coriander notes for a sweet, subtle flavour and a slightly dry finish.
