Bought this on a whim the other day. Googled it in store and it had a good write up on MasterOfMalt. It's a gift so haven't tried it yet. A bit disheartened to see that it's made by Halewood International. Not judging either way, but that's not great pedigree.

It's not made by Halewood just bottled there one of my favourite whiskeys is from Cork distillery in Eire but Halewood have just won the distribution contract for UK so that will be bottled there

Here's hoping they manage to keep the Lambrini out of the process.:p

Well, managed to actually finish reading the write-up on Masterofmalt (for the record, I've no idea how reliable that site is, only ever seem to find it when I'm googling Aldi booze), and I'm feeling much better about things:
This multiple award-winning gin is handcrafted in small batches by the amiable Johnny Neill using Constance, his 100-year-old copper pot still. Descendent of Thomas Greenall and 4th generation gin maker, Johnny has taken inspiration from Africa, with help from his wife, and pulled a couple of gems out of the botanical bag. So alongside coriander seed, angelica root, lemon peel, sweet orange peel, cassia bark, Florentine irris and Macedonian juniper berries, Johnny has added African essence to the mix in the form of the Cape gooseberry and fruit of the Boabab tree. But we’ll get down with that later.

First we’ll explore its scent. Well, it was hard to prize our nose away from the glass! The aromas from this gin are amazing. Fresh, citrusy, well balanced and smooth, it has a great hit of spice and a whisper of floral tones too. But that wasn’t the best bit.

This was. We don’t think our mouth knew what happened to it because on first taste you get completely uppercutted by a wonderful warmth of spice, like Jean Claude Van Damme has just delivered an aromatic shoe to your face! But in a good way. A damn good way.
