6 O’Clock Gin Review – “Strikingly Smooth”

img_0942

6o’clock gin is a fantastic “Gin Drinker’s Gin” that makes regular-ish appearances at home; this gin has a really enjoyable, fresh taste.  There’s a lovely balance between the juniper (which is not at all overwhelming), some sweet floral and bright citrus notes that work together to conjure a lovely satisfying finish.  6 O’clock gin makes a delightful gin and tonic – and a bad-ass martini!

I first encountered this gin a few years ago at a great local restaurant/gin bar called Colley’s.  We arrived before lunch, where it was served to us with 6o’clock’s own tonic water and served with an chunky orange.  This turned out to be a very moorish combination… we had to leave the car at the restaurant and get the taxi home!  This week we tested 6o’clock gin with a few different garnishes – lemon works really well, my partner in crime added a few juniper berries to really pimp up the juniper which gave the gin an interesting spin.

Bramley and Gage make a number of other drinks which should definitely be explored – including a lovely looking dry vermouth which I will definitely be investigating.

Verdict

This lovely English Gin just ticks all the boxes for me.  It’s a beautiful gin – great for cocktails or a lovely G&T and it’s made locally by a family business…  As the bottle states “Strikingly Smooth”.  Vera Gin Verdict – a rather fantastic 9/10.

6 O’clock gin is pretty widely available, it costs £35 for 70cl – you can buy directly from the distiller here.
