Cracking well-reviewed gin, have had a few bottles of this and it's definitely one of the best. At this price an absolute steal.

Ordered one for my daughter she'll love this. Thanks.

vintage gin?? is that just a way of re-branding old stock...?

Got it for £14.99 the other day (Amazon Lightning Deal), but still a good deal here.

You voted cold because it has the word "vintage" in the title? lol

No, I voted cold because it is low quality product being sold at a price above its value with some marketing spiel of "vintage". Id rather drink Gordons for £13.
Further, this is not the lowest price ever, as mrscott31 pointed out it was £14.99 the other day

Have you tried it or are you assuming it's low quality because of the marketing spiel? This is usually well regarded, although I probably wouldn't say one of the best.

As for getting Gordon's, they probably have a lot more marketing behind them than this as it's a huge brand. Why not get the Aldi gin, which is nicer, and save another £3?

I didnt enjoy it, what did you like about it?
And if there was an Aldi close to me I would try it. It would cost over a fiver in a return trip to Aldi from me...

Fair enough, I just couldn't tell if you were speaking from personal experience or not.

I just like having a few different gins, and this has a unique taste, so I have once in a while, but this is a good price, despite the lightening deal the other day, which was sold out when I saw it.

For an everyday gin I'd recommend you try Brecon special reserve when you can find it on offer. Amazon often has it at £15 or less and it's better than some more expensive gins.

Gordons gin was picked out as the best gin in a blind tasting on a TV show on ch4 amongst gins costing twice the price recently. The programme was called tried and tasted.
