Cotswold Gin is a very different type of Gin

Although describing itself as a London Dry Gin, there is so much more to Cotswold London Dry Gin than one might expect.

Yes, it is a traditional, clear as crystal London Dry Gin.

But there is so much more to it than that.

My wife said: "I am a lover of the traditional London Dry Gin style of gin. It was the first type of gin I was introduced ot as a young person, so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

"When I heard about Cotswold London Dry Gin I was intrigued as to what the difference was."

We tried it one afternoon and were both enamoured of this new. yet quintessentially English gin.

Yes, there were the vital floral ingredients of  the traditional London Dry Gin, yet there was definitely something subtly different about Cotswold London Dry Gin.

What on earth was it? It was a pungent difference, but using the world pungent in an entirely positive meaning.

There was an interesting, yet delicate earthiness to this particular type of gin. 

Was there a distinct Cotswold difference? Some herbs or floral essences used in it that are only to be found within the spectacularly beautiful Cotswold region of England, over toward the West of the country?

To be honest, we don't know. But what we do know that the splendid difference was there.

(Actually, the difference is explained on their website and it makes perfect sense!)

What we do know is that the Cotswold Gin Company have taken London Dry Gin and have given it a very welcome and friendly re-make. But not to such an extent that it is unrecognisable. And that takes a considerable amount of skill, knowledge and expertise.  

It is perfect by itself, and it plays well with other drinks and mixers and we can say that this belongs in your Christmas drinks cabinet!
