Cotswolds Dry Gin has to get a mention as this particular gin distillery is the closest one to my house.
This is a traditional London Dry Gin made with Cotswolds water and nine botanicals – juniper, coriander, angelica root, lavender, bay leaf, grapefruit, lime, black pepper and cardamom seed.
Cotswold Dry Gin greets you with a fresh, clean grapefruit nose, with some florals and pepper lurking gently in the shadows. On drinking you’re greeted with more lovely fresh grapefruit, bright juniper – the spices balance the finish.
This gin when mixed can become slightly opaque which makes a thrilling (and very tasty) martini. As a G&T we paired it with pink grapefruit which works very well.
Cotswold Dry Gin is an excellent all rounder – this gin makes a delicious cocktails and lovely clean G&Ts. Vera Gin Verdict – 8/10.
Cotswolds Dry Gin is widely available, it costs £34.95 for 70cl – you can buy directly from the Distillery.
