I asked the lovely folks at Gilpin’s to send me a bottle of their gin to try and review and they kindly said yes.

I sat down with my Mum one afternoon to sample this. She is a newly converted gin drinker and she really enjoyed this.

It has a great taste that is wonderfully balanced with the botanical elements used. I believe it would be a great component in gin based cocktails.

This is an excellent take on a classic gin flavour.

I really, really liked this.

To me, you’d probably get the best of it from a martini.

You really can get the citrus hints from this
too.

This is a really great gin.

Thanks to Matthew at Gilpin’s for sending it my way!

I give it a strong 4 out of 5 stars.
