Gin MG Miniature 5cl
Please note: this is a miniature bottle.
GIN MG, created in 1940, has been made by following the traditional London Dry Gin method that does without using cloying sugars that mask juniper flavours. It's unique as the only botanical used in MG Gin is juniper berries picked from the distillery's own trees in the Teruel region. These berries are hand-picked in October and re-selected again in Vilanova before distillation.
The Giró Ribot family have been making aromatic cordials and dealing in wine since 1835 - being based in the Penedés wine region of Spain. By the early 1900s, they had also become distillers of brandy and whisky. During the Spanish civil war, Manuel Giró Sr was hiding in the local mountains when he noticed an abundance of juniper bushes growing there. So, began the family's connection with gin, and in 1940 it launched the highly successful Gin MG brand which is now one of the best-selling gins in Spain.
"Ideal for martinis and G&Ts, look for a brisk, bracing aroma that mixes juniper and anise. The palate is smooth, dry and citrusy, with most of the flavour on the cinnamon-accented finish." Wine Enthusiast 91 pts - rated Best Buy£2.95
Master's Selection Gin Miniature 5cl

Master’s Selection is the result of tri-distillation of grain alcohol in the presence of fruit from various exotic aromatic plants. It was created in 1982 as a revolutionary gin on the market. The liquid has always been distilled using the best methods and the best botanical ingredients. The family-owned distillery is incredibly proud of their creation and keep their family symbol, the lion, on the striking blue bottle.
Master’s Selection London Dry Gin uses the necessary Spanish estate-grown juniper and adds other botanicals like Spanish coriander and Guatemalan cardamom. Also three different types of Spanish citrus: sweet oranges from Valencia, bitter oranges and lemons from Seville. Left to soak over 12 months, it makes for a delightfully fruity gin – the citrus trio makes it a very unique profile among gins.

The Echlinville Irish Pot Still Gin Miniature 5clA miniature glass bottle of the superb Echlinville Gin from the Lecale Peninsula in Northern Ireland. Echlinville Distillery grow the barley used for the base spirit on the estate and it's malted on a farm close by. To give it a unique flavour they've chosen local botanicals, such as gorse bush petals and Strangford Lough seaweed. The result is a gin with the essence of the land and sea. If you prefer a gin cocktail then try it with elderflower tonic, a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint, as Echlinville suggest, or just sip it neat. There’s a hint of the homegrown barley on the nose along with fresh floral and citrus notes. While in the mouth the gin has anise and lavender flavours that make way for juniper and coriander notes. Sweetness carries on throughout, with a malt character and creamy mouth-feel seldom found in modern gins. Learn More£5.95
