I discovered this vodka at a lovely little hotel near the Forest of Dean and searched for it for some time. When it came up on Amazon at Christmas I had to have it and wasn't disappointed. The only problem was that my wife tried it and loved it too so I didn't get to drink the whole bottle!
This is a review of the Nettle Gin. In a gin tasting session of 6 different gins this was unanimously voted best. It works exceptionally well with rosemary and pink peppercorn garnish, which bring out the herby undertones. Smooth and grown up, very moreish.
I'm always worried about flavoured spirits in case they taste too artificial. This one was different. It has that flavour you are looking for but it's not too chemical, overwhelming or sweet. I'd recommend a subtle neutral tonic without lemon to really taste the flavour. It's not my favourite gin but it's very good value.
This is my favourite gin, especially for the price! I am not a big fan of gin, however, the elderflower flavour is just sweet enough and takes away the sharpness of regular gins. We took it to a family gathering it was gone within a few hours! Highly recommend for those new to drinking gin or looking for a light drink.
