Warner Edwards is leading the field among craft gin distillers and their rhubarb version is both divine and quirky. Presented here in a tin box, it’s even more difficult to resist. Fresh, yet spicy with a definite hint of rhubarb and pretty pink hue.
"This is a really interesting twist on gin, and the rhubarb gives it a whole new dimension"
This is a wonderful, spicy English gin with a robust rhubarb taste. It is made by ‘Curiosity’, an Arnold Holstein still that forms the beating heart of the operation (it’s a tradition of artisan craftsmen in the business to give their still a name). The all important rhubarb was originally grown in the kitchen gardens of Buckingham Palace during the reign of Queen Victoria, and has since had quite a journey. Half was sent to the Vice Regal Lodge in Dublin and it has now made its way back to Crown Estate land in Lincolnshire. The rhubarb is squeezed through a cider press. Sugar is added and it is blended with the 89% ABV Harrington Dry Gin to bring it to 40%. The pink, square bottle makes this gin’s appearance as distinctive as its taste.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
