Saffron Gin.   France – Coriander.

Hand crafted and produced in a traditional pot still in small batches, Saffron Gin is made from nine fresh botanicals that include juniper, coriander, lemon, orange peel, angelica seeds, iris, fennel and saffron.


Tanqueray No.10.   London – Lime.

Inspired by Charles Tanqueray’s pursuit of perfection, Tanq Ten is distilled in small batches with whole fresh citrus fruits and the finest hand-selected botanical. This is the ultimate for any juniper based gin.

This is the manager’s favourite.


Monkey 47.  Germany – Plum. Recommended tonic; Fevertree Mediterranean.

Unusual gin from the black forest of Germany.  Boasting 47 different botanicals. This is a robust and powerful gin with plenty of spice, fruit and herb flavours.


Tanqueray.  London – Lime wedge.

Tanqueray epitomises the London Dry style, it comes as no surprise that it provides a crisp, dry taste. A titan that survived prohibition to make it to this menu.


Portobello road.  London – Grapefruit.

A tip of the hat to the gins and distillers of yesteryear. Old-style London Dry Gin, containing traditional botanicals and spices with a generous dose of juniper.


Sipsmith.  London – Lime wedge. Recpmmended tonic; Fevertree Elderflower.

This super-small-batch artisanal Gin is flavoured with restraint, making it easier for the natural quality of the spirit to shine through. Spicy juniper with hints of citrus.


Martin Miller’s.   Birmingham – Strawberry.

If you’re worried about your carbon foot print this isn’t the gin for you as Martin Miller’s Gin starts life at Langley’s Distillery near Birmingham, before setting off on a 3,000 mile round trip to Iceland and back. The reason being to use only the purest water.


The Botanist.   Islay – Rosemary.

22 of the 31 botanicals are native to Islay, including wild Islay Juniper, giving us a real taste of the island that’s not a whiskey.


Whitley Neill.   England – Orange.

A London Dry Gin made with African botanicals including extracts from the Baobab Tree (known as the Tree of Life) and Physalis fruit. It’s made in a one-hundred-year-old copper pot still. A gin with true African spirit.


Hendricks.  Scotland – Cucumber.

The starting point for many gin journeys for the people who “don’t like gin”. Quirky producer Hendricks makes their pot-still distilled gin using cucumber as one of the primary botanicals. This makes for a unique, tasty and incredibly refreshing Gin.


Star of Bombay.   England – Orange peel.

Star of Bombay London Dry Gin features botanicals that’ll be familiar to those who love Bombay Sapphire, with a reassembled flavour profile.


Brockman’s.   England – Mixed Berries.  Prefect with Fevertree tranditional tonic.

Delicious gin from Brockman’s. This is made with Bulgarian coriander, blueberries and blackberries as well as bittersweet Valencia orange peel. The result is well balanced and full of flavour. A favourite among staff and customers.


Victoria Rhubarb Gin.   England – Rhubarb peel.

A very regal gin, which uses a variety of rhubarb originally grown in Queen Victoria’s garden, hence the name. A spirit with plenty of sweetness and some subtle, enjoyable sour notes emanate from the rhubarb. Looking for something different? This one’s for you.


Ophir.   England – Black pepper and Orange.

A London Dry Gin made with botanicals from along the traditional spice route that led back to the UK. Indonesian Cubeb berries, Indian black pepper and Morrocan coriander are all used in this gin.


Bloom.   England – Strawberry.

Bloom gin is a superb London Dry Gin produced by Grenall’s and named “Bloom” in reference to the floral nature of its botanicals: honeysuckle, pomelo and chamomile. Light and refreshing perfect to enjoy with a meal on a summers day.


William’s Gin.   Herefordshire – Apple.

This dry, juniper led gin has been designed for the much loved G’n’T. Chase distil their Naked vodka from cider made from organically grown apples, they then distil their gin from the vodka. The result is a delicious gin with notes of spice and citrus fruit.


Adnams Copper House.   Suffolk – Orange peel.

This cracking gin is distilled in a beer stripping column, before being put through a handmade copper pot. It is the purified in a rectifier, all very scientific but the result is a very full and rich gin which is infused with six botanicals including juniper, sweet orange and hibiscus flowers.


All our gins are served with Fevertree tonic.
