More information

Adnams Copper House Gin £3.00
Made with six carefully chosen botanicals, Adnams Copper House Dry Gin is elegant and approachable, classically charged with juniper, rich with floral and citrus notes. It’s a warm and welcoming Adnams gin.

Bombay Sapphire £3.50
Bombay Sapphire gin is one of the most recognised and popular gins available. It mixes well and has a little more complexity than some other mainstream gins. Bombay Sapphire is also comparatively subtle when it comes to being driven by juniper, with the other botanicals also coming to the forefront.

Tanqueray £3.50
Tanqueray gin is a classic and popular gin and it embodies everything associated with a London Dry Gin. Whilst it is not a complex gin, it makes an excellent crisp and dry gin and tonic with juniper at the forefront.

Adnams Rising Sun £4.00
A rye-based gin from Adnams, released in the latter half of 2016. This is made using rye grown by Jonathan Adnams at his farm is Reydon, along with Japanese macha tea, lemongrass and a blend of botanicals. Very refreshing indeed.

Adnams Sloe Gin £4.00
Cherry red in colour with gentle aromas of red plums. Sweetness and the natural bitterness of the sloes are perfectly balanced on the palate which is smooth and round with a luscious creamy texture.

Adnams First Rate Gin £4.50
An intriguing gin from Southwold's Adnams, made with a trio of locally-grown grains for the base spirit - barley, wheat and oat. They've used a selection of botanicals including vanilla, caraway, fennel, orange, lemon and thyme, among others.

Bullards Norwich Dry Gin £4.50
Triple distilled Norwich dry gin is created using a unique gin recipe containing the Tonka bean – a first for the UK – and botanicals sourced from all over Europe. With a subtle sweetness, it is perfect on the rocks or as a gin and tonic.

Bullards Strawberry and Black Pepper Norwich Gin £4.50
For the essence of summer all year round Strawberry and black pepper gin is initially sweet to the taste thanks to the infusion of strawberries. The addition of black pepper adds a slight kick, rounding off each sip with a pleasantly dry finish.

Fishers Gin, Suffolk Coast £4.50
Fishers Gin is distinctive, aromatic and full of character and flavour. From the botanicals and flavours through to the logo and fishing net inspired bottle design, it is a gin that certainly captures the essence of the English coast. Whilst the juniper is subtle behind the bold, warm and herbaceous flavours, it achieves an increasingly difficult feat in the gin industry - after you've tried it once, it is instantly recognisable.

Hendricks £4.50
Whether it's the apothecary-style bottle or the sight of a gin and tonic garnished with a slice of cucumber, Hendrick's is a distinctive and recognisable gin that has opened many people's eyes to less traditional gins. Hendrick's gin's true calling is a G&T with a slice of cucumber or lime, or with soda water and a touch of elderflower (or an elderflower tonic).

Pinkster £4.50
Pinkster is deliciously dry, with gentle fruity notes and the smoothest of finishes. A characterful, small batch premium gin made with locally grown raspberries in Cambridge.

St Giles Gin £4.50
Crafted by hand in the city of Norwich. Inspired by journeys around the globe and created in a custom made copper still, this exceptional gin is hand crafted by infusing an elegant blend of 11 exotic botanicals, including grains of paradise, rose petals and lemongrass.

St Giles Divers Gin £4.50
A Navy strength expression from St. Giles Gin, made with a revamped botanical selection including Norfolk samphire, cubeb berries, sea kelp and liquorice root. Exactly what the diver ordered! The distillers recommend garnishing a St. Giles Gin Divers’ Edition G&T with a slice of pink grapefruit.

Warner Edwards Elderflower £4.50
Harvested just once a year, and capturing the very essence of a British summer’s day, from field to bottle in just a few short hours. A beautifully balanced gin that is smooth, sweet and delicately fragrant with summer elderflower. Enjoy over ice or in a refreshing G&T – summer in a glass.

Warner Edwards Rhubarb £4.50
The rhubarb juice is extracted using a traditional fruit press and blended with Harrington Dry Gin to produce an alluring pink gin that is voluptuous on the palate with a sweet and tangy royal rhubarb explosion. Enjoy with plenty of ice and your favourite tonic. Authentic British craft at its best.

Buss 509 Pink Grapefruit £5.00
Packed with citrus notes this Buss 509 gin features red Californian grapefruit as a botanical along with juniper, coriander, liquorice, angelica, vanilla, cardamom, iris, orange and lemon. Bright and flavoursome, this Belgian gin would make for a fine aperitif.
