  • One of the oldest names in gin!


    Gilbey's Special Dry Gin is a concoction of delight, wrapped in a bottle that beckons the curious and the thirsty.


    Its genesis traces back to the 1870s, birthed by the Gilbey brothers, who were not just war veterans but also pioneers in the spirits business.


    This gin, with its juniper-forward flavor complemented by a citrusy zest, stands as a testament to their legacy. Its straightforward character, with just enough botanical intrigue to keep things interesting, has won over the hearts of many, emerging victorious in a blind taste test among friends and aficionados​.

    ​​

    Gilbey’s prides itself on a production method akin to whiskey, creating a gin that boasts deeper, more pronounced flavors of juniper and citrus than many of its contemporaries. The use of 12 botanicals, including the less common calamansi, contributes to its distinctive taste. This method has been consistent since its inception, ensuring that each sip is as good as the last​.


    Gilbey's, now shepherded under the Beam Suntory umbrella, continues to produce this London Dry Gin with the same dedication to quality as when it first hit the scene. The brand's ability to maintain its beloved recipe and appeal across generations is nothing short of impressive, making it a staple in many a gin lover's cabinet​.

  • Nose

    The opening notes are primarily of citrus zest, which upon aeration, reveals the unmistakable presence of juniper berries, creating an aroma that is both refreshing and inviting​.

  • ABV

    37.50%

  • Country

    England

  • Producer

    Suntory

  • Palate

    The taste is juniper-forward from the start, evolving at midpalate to highlight the lemon zest's keen acidity. This combination creates a profile that is distinctly gin, with a clear emphasis on its primary botanicals​.

  • Finish

    The finish leans towards the citrusy side, ending a bit fiery. This denotes a gin that leaves a lasting impression with a bright, acidic, and slightly warm conclusion, perhaps different from the lingering botanical complexity some might expect from a traditional London Dry Gin​.
