Where to start? Behind any bar you will always find a wide selection of gin bottles; each with their own creative design and flavour to catch your eye and tempt you into the wonderful world of gin. But what makes each one so unique? We’ve picked out some of our favourite gin bottle designs just in time for International Gin Day, to find out if you really can judge a gin by it’s bottle!
First up on our gin journey is a selection from multi award-winning Scottish gin distillery Edinburgh Gin. We are loving the simple but elegant design on these slim-line custom made bottles!
Inspired by Edinburgh’s famous gin-making heritage and available in an array of flavours such as Elderflower, Plum & Vanilla and Raspberry, their small-batch distilled flavoured gin liqueurs are the perfect tipple to team with lemonade and sliced fruit. These fruity sweet gins also serve as the perfect base for a range of tasty gin cocktails.
Ask our staff at Black Olive what they would recommend for the perfect gin cocktail to suit you!
Brace yourselves for this beautiful design!
Stilled with nine gorgeous garden botanicals including angelica, cassia, coriander and grapefruit, this beautifully fresh gin is packed full of flavour with a wonderful aesthetic to match. The stunning bold white bottle is adorned with a striking botanical illustration serving as an appreciation of Arber’s work.
Named after the famous Agnes Arber, who extensively studied botanical philosophy and became the first woman botanist to be named a fellow of the Royal Society back in 1946, this gin is the perfect tribute to smart women everywhere!
If you prefer savoury over sweet, you’ll love the warm spices and earthy flavours running through this drink. Mix with a premium or mediterranean tonic in order to taste the full range of notes in this unique drink.
This handcrafted premium Rhubarb and Ginger Gin stands out behind any bar with the vibrant purple colour synonymous with the London based award-winning distiller.
With more of a tart flavour to complement the rhubarb, this gin is perfect for those who tend to avoid sweet beverages, with a spicy sweet ginger extract to really give the gin that famous full-bodied finish.
Add to your preferred mixer to taste, or ask our bar staff if they could recommend anything in particular to accompany this tasty refreshing gin. We especially like this expertly mixed with ginger ale!
We LOVE the authentic hand-wrapped paper theme of this bottle. Sealed with traditional twine and wax, this one’s a real eye-catcher in the armoury of any well-stocked gin and cocktail bar.
Another botanical copper pot-distilled gin, Ableforth’s combine and capture the flavours of juniper, coriander, cinnamon and fine orange peel to deliver an ‘unparalleled’ drinking experience.
If you are a gin connoisseur, we would definitely recommend taking your taste buds on a trip with this award-winning experimental gin.
Described as crisp and pure by Ableforth’s themselves, we’re sure this one will be enjoyed by gin-lovers everywhere!
