    Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin

    The history of Bathtub Gins dates back to prohibition times when bathtubs were used as vessels for storage of illicit spirits. This Bathtub gin is one of very few modern gins to be produced by cold compression that is infusing the botanicals into the gin before filtering them out before distillation. It features 6 botanicals including cardamom, cinnamon, orange peel, cloves , coriander and of course juniper. Best served with a slice of lime.

    Death’s Door Gin, Washington Island, Wisconsin, USA

    This is a real American hero of a product, which has helped save a farming community who saw their market for their main crop potatoes, collapse in the 1970’s. A project to grow grain was started in 2005 originally to supply flour to the Islands hotel but developed into a craft brewery. This was so successful that the brewery expanded into spirits. The spirits sold so well they now have their own state of the art distillery and the farmers are growing a lot more wheat.

    Deaths Door refers to the dangerous sea passage between the Island and the mainland where over 350 wrecks lie.

    A surprisingly simple botanical mix of organic juniper berries, coriander and fennel. The juniper berries grow wild on the Island and the coriander and fennel are sourced within the State.

    This makes a good basis for many cocktails including a proper dry Martini.

    FIFTY POUNDS is a gin in the Super-Premium category which was introduced to the international markets when its recipe was revived after having been kept hidden for several generations of a family of distillers in London. It is considered by the experts as the best of the finest super-premium gins in the world, together with others in the category such as Hendrick’s or Martin Miller.

    It sources its botanicals from four continents; they include Juniper from Croatia, Coriander from the Middle East, Grains of Paradise from Gulf of Guinea West Africa and Liquorice from Calabria in Italy. This gin is thought by many of my Gin loving customers to create the finest G&T available especially when teamed with an excellent tonic such as Fentiman’s or Fever tree.

    Zuidam Dutch Courage Dry Gin

    Now a gin distillery founded by a man called Fred who grinds his juniper using a windmill has to have a certain authenticity

    Being a Dutch gin this has a more powerful flavour and richness to the base spirit to which the botanicals are added. These include Juniper obviously but also coriander, angelica, oranges, lemons and cardamom pods amongst others giving the finished product a heady spice note that many will enjoy but some may find a little much.

    Ideally enjoy served neat or as a Negroni
