Looking for the best G&Ts? In this four-part feature we chat to the gin industry experts who share with us their top six gin recommendations, starting with Oscar Dodd – the Assistant Spirits & Wine Buyer for Fortnum & Mason.
Dashing Dog Gin, £53
Exclusive to Fortnum & Mason, this gin is sensational in a Lychee Martini or simply served over ice, with a twist of lime.
Fortnum’s London Dry Gin, £28.50
Its coriander and juniper heart is perfectly balanced with citrus and subtle spices.
Distillerie de Paris Gin Batch 1, £45
This is a remarkable gin that’s alive with vibrant, zingy citrus, aromatic spices and the warmth of cloves.
Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin, £50
It is distinctively bold and floral and makes a mean Martini.
Old Bakery Gin, £40
Light and bright with a pleasing juniper hit, Bakery Gin earned its unusual name after the founder discovered his North London office was once a bakery which was famous for selling home-made (and at the time, illegal) gin.
Warner Edwards Honeybee Gin, £44
The honey brings a soft, heathery sweetness and creamy texture, complementing the herbal notes of rosemary and sage.
