Gins for Gin Lovers

The simplest present for gin lovers is probably a new bottle of gin. Most large supermarkets have a decent range of gins available, and if they have a favourite brand that they love, then the easiest route is to pick up a bottle of that.

But there are so many small and artisanal distilleries around, and so many new flavours on the market. You’re sure to get extra brownie points if you manage to pick out a gin that they haven’t tried before.

Here are a few to consider:

Mermaid Gin

This beautiful bottle of small batch Mermaid gin was distilled on the Isle of Wight using locally sourced botanicals including Boadicea Hops, Elderflower and Rock Samphire. It has a smooth Gin with hints of citrus and peppery spices.

Mermaid gin is best served over ice, with a splash of tonic and a slice of lemon, grapefruit or cucumber.
