The gin boom, or birth, is still booming, with the British public buying more juniper drink than ever before.
Sales in the UK hit an all-time high in 2018, when stores and independents managed to move over 70 million bottles, totaling over £ 2 billion. According to the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, this marked the start of a 38 percent year-over-year increase.
And we don’t just buy the bottles. We’re investing in gin parties, gin tours, gin advent calendars, gin menus and more, suggesting that the drink once known as “ Mother’s Ruin ” has not only cultivated a worship, but has become the favorite spirit of our country.
But which gins are the best? There are over 350 distilleries in the UK alone, so working your way up to find a favorite could prove to be expensive (and maddening for the liver) business.
To make your life easier, we’ve picked 14 guaranteed gins to make a G&T or martini to remember – or not, depending on how much you drink.
