Hoxton Gin takes the classic juniper-driven character of gin and adds something exotic: distilled with coconut and grapefruit, it is uniquely smooth and rounded, opening up a whole new world of possibilities.

Immersed in the creative juices of Hoxton, Gerry Calabrese, owner of The Hoxton Pony, Shoreditch, had the idea of recreating a classic; to create a fun Gin that's like no other on the market. One that's smooth, easy and different from the rest - Hoxton Gin.

It reinvigorates such standards as the G&T, and an additional dash of grapefruit juice transforms this classic.

But it is so fine, there's no need to dress it up: try the Naked Martini - simply serve the gin straight from the freezer into an ice cold martini glass.

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.
