This isn’t your average gin as this juniper, lemon and orange zest Gin offers a refreshing citrus taste mingling with meadowsweet and woodruff. You have the lovely juniper riding forward with citrus followed by a sweetness that coats the palette. Enjoy it neat or on ice. I love creating an orange Martini with this blend! #happyhour #comfortfood #weeknightmeal #holidaycheers

Botanist is a great gin! Very smooth with great botanic hints and goes great in more complex cocktails or in a simple gin and tonic. Highly recommend adding and keeping Botanist gin on your bar rotation. I found this gin at my local liquor store.

My favorite gin! Specially good for sunny days by the pool. Great with just tonic water and a bit of lime juice.

This and Austin Reserve(a local gin, amazing if you are in the Austin, Tex area you must try it you can get it at specs) are my favorite find. The botanicals in the Bostonian are so good this is Berger for a gin gin or a gin and tonic!!

So smooth. This gin deserves to be served over nice ice or with really good tonic. I'm a fan of this with fever tree tonic water and a squeeze of lime.

I used to be a brand ambassador for this gin. I love the packaging/presentation of the product. The smell is heavenly in my opinion. I give it 4/5 because it is a little too strong for my taste. I prefer to mix instead of drinking it on the rocks.

This is hands-down my favorite Gin. It goes easy on the juniper and heavier on the citrus and florals. It makes the best martini you will every have. Don’t skimp on the vermouth though, it goes well together. Garnish with a lemon twist, and the citrus oils will pull everything together.

My favorite gin: smooth, herbal taste that is a great complement to any mixed drink or perfectly nice on the rocks. Not only is the taste great, but the bottle is beautiful and looks nice on the shelf.
