Brockmans Gin
Brockmans unique recipe of naturally grown aromatic botanicals are steeped in pure grain spirit for many hours to release their natural oils and aromas. The more traditional notes of gin are combined with a refreshing influence of citrus and aromatic wild berries.

Bulgarian coriander plays its part, providing an aromatic, gingery orange top note. This blends perfectly with the soft and rounded harmonies of blueberries and blackberries, all of which is supported by the bottom note of Tuscan juniper berries. Dry, bittersweet Valencian orange peel elongates the deeper tones and gives an intensely smooth finish.Brockmans is slowly distilled in a 100 year old traditional copper still.

Our Thoughts on Brockmans Gin
I have to admit I'm not a big gin drinker (wine for me please) so until now I'd only tried the brand Gordons. Since we still had some Gordons gin in the cupboard we did a taste test. Yes indeed me and the husband were on the gin last night; but I'd best point out that neither of us have work today 😊

On a serious note, you really can tell the difference. I'm no good at describing any kind of drink so I'm not even going to try, but honestly we both say you can tell the difference. 

Where to buy Brockmans
You can buy Brockmans Gin (RRP £34-36) through ASDA, Booths, Co-Op, M&S, Morrisons, Ocado selected speciality retailers and online retailers.
