There’s been a renaissance of craft gin in the past few years. From Durham to Dover, distilleries around the UK are producing top-quality examples of this ever-popular botanical spirit, and they offer an array of flavour profiles far beyond the usual juniper-heavy versions of old. Take our zest and spice gins, made at London’s Thames Distillery, a micro-brewery that was way ahead of the craft gin curve, making spirits in Clapham, London since 1700. The zest flavour balances hints of citrus zest, orange peel, liquorice, angelica and cassia, while the spice version is a heady combination of coriander, rosemary and ginger. Both taste amazing with tonic – or shake things up with the easy summer cocktail ideas below.
