Elgin Gin

Elgin Gin The number of small craft gins on the market has increased to extreme levels in recent years as the Gin boom has rid the drink of it's mothers ruin title and moved to be a fashionable and sought after drink.

On my recent trip to Elgin i tried this El:Gin (Elgin Gin) which only seems to be available in the local area although i'm sure more and more people will begin to try to hunt it out.

Interesting notes in here, citrussy but very herby with a large dose of Coriander which will be a love/hate moment for many.

It does go a bit curry like with the coriander, a bit too much for my own person liking, but i can appreciate why others may really like it because of that.

Try the Elgin Gin website for more information on stockists.
