Welcome To The Gin Palace

Gin has had a huge resurgence and it has gone from just a G&T with ice and a slice of lemon classic aperitif to savouring all the subtle nuances and blends which can make up the many varied gin flavours.

So let’s look at our favourites by style


Gin in the classic style: deliciously crisp and dry

East London Gin £38.00 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

East London Liquor Company is the first vodka, gin and whisky distillery in London's East End for over a century. And they've marked the comeback with some exceptional spirits. Their premium Batch No.1 is well balanced and classically dry.

Tanqueray No. Ten Gin £32.50 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Fresh grapefruit peels and camomile are key to the wonderful aroma of this luxurious twist on the classic Tanqueray recipe. Distilled in small
batches on a tiny copper pot still, it’s velvety smooth. Lovely in a topnotch G&T

Adnams Copper House Gin £26.99 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Distilled in handmade copper pot stills, this craft gin from Suffolk is made with juniper and five other botanicals including sweet orange and hibiscus flowers. An elegant twist on the classic style – fragrant, fresh, with a hint of anise


Bright, zesty and fresh, these are gins with real zing

Daffy's Gin £35.99 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Spanish oranges and lemons are steeped for four days to make this Scottish gin, which absolutely bursts with vibrant citrus flavours. More unusually, it’s also flavoured with Lebanese mint, which imparts a cool sweetness.

Beefeater 24 £25.00 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Made in the heart of London from 12 hand-selected botanicals including Japanese Sencha and Chinese Green teas, Beefeater 24 is our Master Distiller, Desmond Payne's, contribution to the Beefeater legacy

No.3 London Dry Gin £35.00 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

From the outset, No.3 was designed to be a no-nonsense G&T gin, and it hits the spot with fresh orange peel and grapefruit zest, crisp juniper and more earthy angelica and cardamom. Serve with lashings of chilled tonic water and plenty of ice.


A riot of floral ingredients make these gins blooming lovely

Bulldog London Dry Gin £24.00 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Despite the name, this gin is light and perfumed, with floral notes of angelica, lotus leaves and lavender that give way to delicate spices: white poppy, almond, sweet liquorice and cassia. The finish is smooth and creamy with a hint of lemon.

Silent Pool Gin £39.50 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

No fewer than 24 botanicals go into the strikingly packaged Silent Pool, which is named after a lovely lake beside the distillery where it’s made, deep in the Surrey Hills. Many ingredients are locally sourced, including elderflower, pears and honey.

Bloom London Dry Gin £24.50 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Honeysuckle and scented camomile lend a delicate fragrance to this smooth, sweet gin. The juicy citrus notes come from ripe pomelo, a fruit with a flavour like mild grapefruit. A gentle, refreshing gin that goes particularly well with desserts.


Fresh and green or spicy and complex, these gins are sure to intrigue

Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin £23.00 Waitrose (Shop Now)

Handpicked botanicals including Indonesian cubeb berries, Indian black pepper and Moroccan coriander interweave with juniper and citrus to give this gin the exotic character of the Orient. Serve with tonic water and lemon, or a slice of red chilli

Gin Mare £39.50 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Botanicals including Arbequina olives, thyme, rosemary and basil give this Spanish gin a sophisticated Mediterranean flavour. Its slightly salty, more savoury flavour profile is great in a Bloody Mary.

Pink Pepper Gin £40.00 Waitrose Cellar (Shop Now)

Created by an Australian living in France, this gin has a lively kick from fruity pink peppercorns. Sweet honey, tonka beans and vanilla are also in the mix, resulting in a finish that’s spicy-sweet but smooth
