Five of the best winter gins - Articles About Gin | The Gin Box
This month, we’re finding all sorts of reasons to embrace the cold air and frosty mornings with a quintet of seasonal spirits…

We start our list with Sheffield Dry’s Marmalade Gin: Twice infused with Seville oranges, as well as marmalade produced locally to their Sheffield-based distillery by Hedgerow Preserving Company, it works well as a refreshing summer tipple, but we find enjoying it hot makes for a true winter treat.
One Port Barrel Aged
Combining one of this season’s most iconic drinks with our favourite tipple, One Gin’s Port Barrel-Aged Gin provides the full package. To create this delightful spirit, their award-winning flagship, Sage Gin, is rested in reclaimed port barrels, infusing it with spiced vanilla and toasted oak flavours.
If there’s one gin that’s suitable to keep us warm over the colder months, it’s Thunderflower’s Fireship. Named after the 17th-century wooden ships packed with combustibles and gunpowder, this historic spirit is filled with something a little less explosive, but equally fiery in the form of spiced botanicals.
Next up is Copperfield’s Volume Three Gin, whose warm colours featured on the bottle accurately reflect what’s inside. Their use of conventional botanicals such as juniper, orris root, and liquorice makes for the ideal canvas against which to balance the spicier star anise, cinnamon, coriander, and orange peel flavours.
Our list of winter essentials wouldn’t be complete without Jarrold’s Limited Edition Sloe Gin. Handpicked wild sloe berries grown in West Sussex hedgerows are in the spotlight of this special spirit, adding not just its iconic sweetness and colour, but notes of almond from the berries’ stones too.
