The Ultimate Gin Experience
Gin Gin Botanicals are the latest craze!
You can make your own gin, enhance the flavours of a gin or simply make beautiful looking drinks with our handy stackable set of gin botanicals that have been carefully curated to give you the best flavours in your gin drinks. We have worked hard to ethically source the best quality botanicals and have added edible gold leaf to the stack to make the best looking drinks around.
Each botanical contains a different health benefit and if you are not drinking alcohol they make for a fantastic healthy drink (that tastes like gin) just add sparking water. To find out the benefits of different botanicals that make up gin we have created a handy chart down the page..
We also stock large ice spheres to really let you make the best drinks. The large sphere of ice melts at a much slower rate than smaller ice cubes preventing your drink from being watered down. They also look so good! You can add edible flowers, the gold leaf, spices, fruit to make beautiful, Instagram worthy cocktails every day. The smaller sphere is suitable for a narrow highball glass while the large sphere is perfect for a low ball or balloon/goblet style of glass.
The core botanical in every gin. Adds a light spicy and bittersweet taste. Lightly crush the berries before putting them in the glass to help release the flavour. For something different try adding a slice of fresh apple or juice.
The second most commonly used spice in gin, after juniper. Coriander seeds will add citrus, nut and slightly spicy notes. Increases good cholesterol and metabolism. Contains calcium and magnesium.
Notes of lemon, slightly spicy, has a curious electric sensation. It will bring a spicy freshness to a drink.
Cardamom will add an intense, sweet and slightly spicy citrus flavour. Try adding lime juice or rind and coffee beans for an unusual but delicious combination.
Sweet, fruity flavour with a slightly bitter spicy note. Gently Squeeze a couple of peppercorns with your fingers to add a fruity aroma and pleasant sweetness.
It is advisable to use a straw with this one as the skins can come away and you may not like drinking them. Other options would be to strain before drinking or use the peppercorns in a tea infuser. Complimentary flavours include cinnamon, ginger, mint, rosemary and basil.
Star Anise will add a sweet, aniseed, slightly peppery flavour to your drink. For a festive cocktail add orange peel and cinnamon. Star Anise is an antioxidant and can aid digestion.
