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.

    You don't see much Mead in use these days but its a delicious drink on it's own.  We highly recommend Gosnells, made with Spanish blossom honey but there are many variants out there waiting to be discovered.

    It's well worth mentioning Warner Edwards encourage the partnering of Prosecco with their Honey bee too, so if you'd prefer this recipe a little dryer and don't have Gosnells for the bubbles, don't be shy!

  • Jimmy popped your Cherry

    A infusion of tart Cherry & Citrus, with a smokey finish.

    We used our own home made Cherry gin for this one, but there's nothing stopping you using one off the shelf..
    Just make sure it's nice and tarty.  If you've only got a sweet cheery gin available, you could easily add a little cranberry juice or double up on the lemon.

    In our recipe, we recommend a splash of Prosecco, which lengthens the drink and really enhances the dryness.

  • 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.

  • X-Gin Chocolate Espresso Martini

    As the winter nights draw in, you'll be after something wholesome, indulgent and perhaps even spiced to keep your cockles warm.

    This gluttonous treat should do just the trick..

    Enter X-Gin, with all the qualities you expect from a fine dark cocoa. Bitter on the finish, nutty and few surprises lurking in it's depths.

  • Gin & Tonic cake

    Here at the Gin Box we’ve been hearing a lot about gin and tonic cake and we’ve tried a couple of examples that were pretty good so we decided to give it a go ourselves. Now there is a minor issue in that we don’t really bake.

    We can certainly cook a mean roast dinner and BBQ like a trooper but baking has never really featured highly on the skill set. Cue our good friends at Social Pantry in London. They’ve got lots of experience with gin and tonic and more importantly lots and lots of experience with excellent cake.

  • Gardeners Respite

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

    Its' Mojito-esque flavour suits the eucalyptus in the Principe perfectly. And the light addition of caraway helps bring this out even more.

  • 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.
