When it comes to gin, Foxdenton seriously deserves some recognition. 

I've been sampling this fruity gin for a few weeks and all I can say is... I'm craving another bottle! It is a wonderful blend of Golden Apricot and London Dry Gin. It is seriously delicious.

Bottle Design
Understated and simple. The traditional heritage style branding is spot on. I'll be adding this one to my gin bottle collection!

Cocktail Recipe
I have tried the Golden Apricot White Lady cocktail but the gin has such an impact it is nice enough to drink on its own. But, if you're intrigued try the recipe below:

The History
I really enjoyed learning the history of the Foxdenton Estate. I think it is truly fascinating that the estate was first acquired in 1367 and has since been handed down and kept in the Radclyffe family over the generations.

Why I love it My thoughts

This beautiful new blend of golden apricot gin delicately satisfies the taste buds. It is a sophisticated British drink and perfect for somebody who enjoys a mellow drink of an evening. I dare say this is so delicious you can drink it anytime of the day.

I recommend you drink this flavoursome gin neat to fully experience the unique blend. The fruity taste and smooth texture make it the perfect drink to accompany you in the rolling countryside and on the field. Hip flasks at the ready!

The colour of the gin is pleasing; a golden amber colour which is contrary to other gins I have come across.

To drink, it is impeccably smooth and the lasting aftertaste is truly amazing. I had to restrain myself from finishing the bottle in one sitting, it is so yummy! It does have a rich taste but it is not cloying, it is moreish and somewhat refreshing. First, it is sweet then the impact of the apricot instantly hits your taste buds! It is like a warm hug - gin style.

"The nose is very full of Almonds and almost smells like marzipan. However, the taste is a lovely sweet apricot."

It also makes a great feature on your drinks cabinet. The bottle is understated and the branding is traditional,  sophisticated and depicts their ancestry.

It really does deserve some recognition and is a total hit! Now the weather is finally improving this will make a great summer liqueur.

Fruity Gin your thing?
Foxdenton also makes Sloe gin, Damson Gin, Winslow Gin and so much more...

Thank you so much Foxdenton for allowing me to sample your truly special gin! It has been a real treat and deserves some attention. It is heartwarming to see you continue with your families tradition of gin making. I am pleased to say I can genuinely recommend your gin to everyone! 

Are you a gin-ologist/gin expert?! Have you sampled it? If not, you have to try this!
