Slingsby - Gooseberry Gin

Innovative gin distilleries are popping up around the world, and as much as we believe that their presence is helping to make the world a better place, it’s also leaving us with a plethora of different choices when it comes to the gins that we buy and drink.

The world of flavoured gins is quite unique, as they can be used to take your gin and tonic from a plain affair to a cocktail of different flavours and nostalgia. Today, we are going to be sharing some of our favourite flavoured gins with you.

Is there anything more British than the taste of a Bakewell tart on a sunny afternoon? Bakewell Gin comes from a family-run distillery nestled in the idyllic surrounds of the Peak District. Perfectly encapsulating the teatime treat’s distinctive cherry and almond flavour, this gin also benefits from the addition of cardamom and hibiscus flowers.

The perfect addition to dessert. Eden Mill’s Love Gin Liqueur is a creamy raspberry delight, with a strong backdrop of vanilla. This delightful gin smells like berries and meringues, and it tastes as though meringues may have actually been infused into the syrupy goodness. It is worth noting that the intense sweetness of this gin is enough to satisfy even the strongest of cravings, and you might find yourself reaching for tonic to balance out the flavour.

Any gin lover knows that having a gin that can be paired with even the strangest of meals is important, so how about a gin that could perfectly complement a slice of buttered toast? The Aber Falls Orange Marmalade Gin packs a lush orange flavour profile, and is best sipped straight for its citrus zest or with a tonic.

8. Slingsby Gooseberry Flavoured Gin

Starting out as a limited edition gin, due to its popularity the Award-Winning Slingsby Gooseberry Gin has now made its way in to the starting lineup in the Slingsby range. Created with locally sourced Yorkshire gooseberries and other botanicals, this gin is mixed with water from the famous Tewit Well in the spa town of Harrogate, ensuring all of its ingredients are of the finest quality. This gin encompasses subtle but unmistakable fresh and tangy gooseberry undertones followed by fruity citrus notes. We enjoyed ours served simply with an apple wedge and Fever Tree Indian Tonic water, served on ice.
