The new Hoxton Gin is launched at a special introductory price and with free UK delivery!

The brainchild of Gerry Calabrese and James Rackham of Emporia Brands who appointed world renowned distillers, Gabriel Boudier of Dijon, France, the task to make this unusual, tasty grapefruit and coconut gin.

There is a subtle rather than overwhelming presence of juniper on the nose; on the palate a variety of botanicals vie for prominence, including coconut and grapefruit, with grapefruit winning out in the end.

This is superbly well balanced gin with a silky, mouth-filling range of flavours.

Do not treat this spirit as a conventional gin. I certainly could not take to it naked as the producer recommends. For me - and I guess many drinkers - the dominating coconut flavour has unfortunate resonances (Malibu,lemonade and typically, the wrong kind of woman) But used as a cocktail base, Hoxton is superb (I avoid calling it gin) and the inherent quality of the distiller shines through. Try the English Daquiri from the producers website: 50ml Hoxton/20ml Creme de Cacao/20ml lemon juice + a dash of sugar syrup. A truly excellent drink.
