| Buy Gin Online | Bottles & Samples

The Gin Box Shop, home of the craft gin gift box, has a selection of the best gins available to buy & discover in the UK at the most competitive prices online.  Many of the gins we offer are craft gins produced by artisan producers in small batches and are truly exceptional spirits. Most of our bottles are available as 30ml & 50ml samples.

Now open locally, we're Tunbridge Well's most comprehensive gin shop / off-licence. We also have a tasting room & private bar available for hire in Tunbridge Wells.

We have scoured the world to find the best gins available on the market today. Each of our gins has been selected because it incorporates the best quality ingredients, along with exciting innovation, to produce a truly wonderful spirit.
We have created a profile for each gin so that you can gain a true insight into the history of the gin and more importantly some ideas for how the distiller intended it to be served.

We have a great selection of gifts. The selection includes tasting sets, posters, glasses and botanicals for the perfect g&t.

We're also concerned about our environmental footprint. We have been phasing out the use of plastic wherever we can, and have been developing new ideas to assist you in how you deal with packaging from us. You can read all about our packaging considerations and suggestions for their re-use on our recycling page.

Doing our bit
  • Packaging & Environmental Considerations

    We take choosing our packaging materials and methods seriously at The Gin Box Shop.

    Over the last 6 months you may have noticed that our packaging has got simpler, but in a good way, we have been phasing out the use of plastic wherever we can, and have been developing new ideas to assist you in how you deal with packaging from us.

    Our Main Objectives

    • Minimise non-recyclable materials, including sticky-backed-plastic or sellotape.
    • Keep plastic to a minimum, whilst still offering competitive options for our customers.
    • Keep protective packaging material to a minimum whilst ensuring parcels aren’t damaged in transit.
    • When possible, buy products which are themselves made from recycled materials.
    • Inform customers what they can do with each element of packaging they inherit from us.

    You can read the extensive list of packaging materials, along with what they are used for and what their recycling or re-use options are on our recycling page.

Our best gins and serves

Great ideas to enjoy your gin..
  • Sherry'll be right by Four

    Named after the Australian slang phrase "She'll be right" , this is a delightful and balanced serve that tames the raw complexity of Four Pillars Sherry cask Gin.

    The gin itself is intense and an awesome sipping gin, but this recipe aims to make it a little longer and soften the edges a bit, making it ideal for an afternoon in the Aussie sun.

  • Honey, I drank the gin

    This recipe focuses on providing a platform for the deliciously floral Warner Edward's Honey Bee Gin which is frankly superb on its own and doesn't want to be mixed with anything else too opinionated.

  • 5 Quick gin serving tips

    1. ICE, ICE, ICE, ICE BABY.

    When making a G&T more ice is better if you don’t want a watered down drink - the more ice you put in the more surface area of ice in contact with your drink and the quicker it cools the drink……
    But, make sure your cubes aren’t too small as a poor ratio of volume to surface area will make for a quicker melt! Continue reading The Gin Box Shop

  • Sloe Sussex 75

    A recommended serve by The Nodding Donkey Distillery for their delightfully tart Limited Edition Sloe Gin.

    The Nodding Donkey love their gin with a bit of fizz. And there's no need for concern, their Sloe Gin really shows its colours and isn't masked by the mix at all.

  • Gin & Tonic cake

  • Gardeners Respite

    We created our own recipe centric around the marvellously fresh Principe de los apostles.

  • Rhubarb Gimlet

    There are multiple variants of this recipe around. We started with Warner Edwards' own and offer up the addition of pink peppercorns and coriander seeds to add a little spice if you like.

    Personally, I find Warner Edwards Rhubarb sweet enough, though they recommend adding a little lime cordial to the recipe to sit in the mix.

  • Gin Sour (with Aperol)

    You can use any London Dry for this recipe. Jenson's is an excellent choice, or better still our Two Birds Cocktail Gin is designed for purpose, and it comes in a 200ml bottle at just £13!

    Egg whites not only bring together flavors; they also give a cocktail a silky texture. The Aperol in the recipe doubles as light sweetener, so forget the syrup and go pro. Aromatic bitters are used as garnish to finish and add aroma.

    GŴYR aka Gower gin recommend their "Prohibition" cocktail.

    It's a naughty twist on a gin fizz, normally a common mix for a gin liqueur.
