WIN-WIN GINS

21 Aug 2017 By

Here are 7 winning gins we can totally get into.

Whether it’s the botanicals you love, or that gins make some of the greatest cocktails, it’s your lucky day: Here are some win-win gins you’ll like.

Dornoch Experimental Batch Gin

At a small distillery in Dornoch, Scotland they make gin the old-fashioned way, from scratch. They use fully floor malted barley fermented with brewers yeasts to create some truly unique gems. And their Experimental Batch Gin series shows off their talents, creating gins with loads of botanicals, some that have next to none, along with gins perfect for a gin and tonic while others are more suited for blending with ginger beer. To date, ten different experimental batches have been released, each with a different trait or flavor that makes it stand out.

 

Copper & Kings Old Tom Gin

Known for distilling delicious Brandy in the heart of Bourbon country, Copper & Kings are expanding their expertise into the world of gin. Their American Old Tom Gin is a new release, distilled twice using 100% grape wine in American made alembic stills. The gin uses classic botanicals that are steeped in grape brandy low-wine before being re-distilled together with vapor distilled botanicals in the gin basket. It’s a unique take on the spirit that is a perfect fit for the classic Ampersand cocktail.

 

Fisher’s Gin

Any bottle of Gin is only as good as the botanicals within the recipe. They give it the aroma and flavor that separate the contenders from the pretenders. And that’s what sets Fisher’s Gin apart. This London Dry Gin is from the Suffolk coast and uses some traditional botanicals like juniper, cardamom, orange and lemon peels — along with some botanicals that are rare or thought by some to be extinct. The rarities are spignel, rock samphire, wood aven, and bog myrtle and they help give Fisher’s its unique flavor and aroma.

Herno Sipping Gin

Each year, Hernö releases a special sipping gin aged in hand selected casks. And this year, the Swedish distiller opted for ex-Box whisky casks that previously held Sherry. The gin itself is the same award-winning recipe used in more Hernö Gins, but after 21 days in the cask, it takes on some unique flavor characteristics pulled from the cask. It’s another hit from the distillery that has the most awarded gin in Europe for the last four years, garnering more than 50 international master and gold medals.

 

Nikka Coffey Gin

For over 80 years, the Nikka brand has been known as one of the finest makers of Japanese whisky. And now, for the first time, Nikka is entering the world of white spirits with Nikka Coffey Gin. Using the same continuous style stills developed by Aeneas Coffey in 1830, the Gin is produced using 11 botanicals including sansho pepper, yuzu, kabosu, amanatsu, and shequasar from Japan. A unique Gin from a trusted source that spirits fans will want to seek out.

 

Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin

A cool, refreshing cocktail is the perfect answer to the question of what you will be drinking this weekend. And Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin should be on your shortlist, featuring botanicals that are just as useful in the kitchen as they are in your gin and tonic. Juniper, Cucumber, Sage, Lemon, and Lavender form the foundation of this light, flavorful spirit which was inspired by the master distiller’s Uncle Val’s love of gardening and native Tuscan cuisine.

 

Alkkemist Gin

alkkemist gin

This Spanish gin assumes its particular personality from the full moon’s influence, as it is distilled during the full moon, and mystery surrounds it formula and methods. What’s not so secretive is that it is triple-distilled, as well as its flavour, which is herbaceous, fleshy and filled with Mediterranean goodness and spices.
