Brockmans Gin it belongs in your Christmas drinks cabinet

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a gin aficionado. However, in the case of Brockmans Gin, I am more than happy to make an exception!

Brockmans Gin is vastly different to the gins you might already have tried. In fact, I will issue you the That's Christmas challenge. Please buy a bottle of Brockmans Gin and give it a try. I think you will be pleasingly surprised at the flavours in Brockmans Gin.

The scent is pleasing, with nice floral notes.

But then comes the taste! My word, what a revelation it is to the artistry behind the creation of a good gin!

This is my own personal opinion: At first there is a definite subtle hint of Palma Violets.

But next there's a definite little hint of roses and thirdly there's a visit to a hedgerow in full floral bloom at the height of summer.

Although, obviously, you can make cocktails with Brockmans Gin, you might feel more than a little guilty about spoiling the natural taste of this fine gin.

For the purposes of research we did prepare some cocktails with some Brockmans Gin.

We found it worked extremely well with Fevertree Indian Tonic Water, with Fentiman's Rose Lemonade and with some Opies cherries in Kirche. Plus, of course, a good deal of the Kirche!

If you intend to make some Brockmans cocktails for the Christmas and New Year period, please take our advice and buy more than one bottle, or run the risk of running out!

It should cost about £28 a bottle.
