Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’d know that gin—which was previously used for herbal medical purposes back in the 16th century—is back in fashion. Although it’s not quite used for the same purposes as it was before (plus we don’t have to scour speakeasies to get them), gin has made waves in the alcohol industry, thanks to its creative and experimental appeal, sought after by classic drinkers. With its botanical notes and flavours during distillation, distilleries are able to curate innovative tastes to appeal for different palettes. Whilst we may be familiar with the supermarket shelf classics, the rise in boutique brands has led to unique concoctions which can’t be found elsewhere. Here are our favourite artisan gins to add to a liqueur cupboard—and to craft the perfect G&T.
