Hands up if you love a good Gin and Tonic? There is seriously nothing better than an ice-cold G&T at the end of a hot day. With so many different Gins out there at different price points. Some admittedly better than others. It can be hard to find one that offers excellent taste and great value. That was until I found 58 Gin!
58 Gin, £24.99
58 Gin is a delicious mix of 9 botanicals including Juniper, Coriander Seed, Orris Root, Angelica, Cubeb Pepper, Sicilian Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Bargamot, and Bourbon Vanilla. Distilled using copper stills. Giving it a really smooth and clean taste, with a lovely hint of citrus. Which is exactly how I like my Gin. It goes really well with Fever Tree Tonic but I would say it would go well with cheaper ones. It is a premium Gin, but the good news is, Aldi’s launching it as part of 8 new Gins. Making it much more affordable. Don’t worry about about the price in this image. This was a small bottle. Aldi is offering a larger bottle cheaper than buying from independents.
Not only is Aldi launching 58 Gin, they are launching 7 others, which sound just as delicious….
The Infusionist Passionfruit Gin Liqueur, £9.99
This one is going to go well in a homemade Pornstar Martini! As the name suggests it’s a Passionfruit Gin Liqueur. If Martini’s aren’t your thing, you can always mix it with Prosecco or Champagne, to make a delicious fizzy cocktail.
Oliver Cromwell Pink Gin, £10.99
Who doesn’t love a Pink Gin? This one follows on from the success of Aldi’s award-winning Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin. This tasty sounding pink version has notes of strawberries, redcurrants and raspberries. Meaning it will be sweet enough to drink neat over some ice, mixed with a nice tonic or equally as nice in a cocktail.
Harrison’s Cucumber Gin, £15.99
If you are a fan of Hendrick’s Gin you’ll have to give this a try. Rumour has it, it tastes exactly like it!
Beckett’s London Dry Gin, £24.99
If you are a fan of localish small-batch gin you’ll want to give this a go. It’s brewed with English Juniper Berries picked in Box Hill, and mint sourced from Kingston-Upon-Thames. It has other botanicals from Morocco and Spain.
McQueen Sweet Citrus Gin, £19.99
This one is for Gin lovers who prefer Citrus Gins. It’s made in Scotland using grapefruit, lime and lemongrass. It’s also an award-winner!
Colombo No.7 Gin, £19.99
If you love a Gin with a little bit of history. This one might interest you. It’s a British Asian gin which originates from Sri Lanka. It’s based on a 70-year-old recipe, which was created during the Second World War.
Boyle’s Craft Irish Gin, £19.99
Want to try a Gin that’s a bit different? How about one that’s spicy with a zesty bite? It’s brewed with a blend of blackcurrent, apples and elderflower.
I have only tried the 58 Gin, which I would highly recommend, again and again. The others sound extremely interesting. Particularly the Passionfruit and Harrison ones. As a Hendricks fan, I am looking forward to taste testing it, to see if the rumours are true.
