Greenall’s Gin is produced by G&J Distillers, which is the oldest continuous working distillery in England. It was founded by Thomas Dakin at 1761. Greenall’s is made by eight botanicals: Juniper, Lemon, Coriander, Cassia Bark, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Liquorice and Bitter Almond. Them are been macerated for 8 hours in English wheat spirit ahead of being distilled. 70cl bottle costs 13.69€ at Alko1000.

Greenall’s is one of the cheapest London Dry gins and it offer just that what you can expect for a bottom-self price. Neutral, light, thin for flavours but quite sharp alcohol burn. There is some juniper and coriander to notice and bit of lemon on aftertaste, but that’s all. It’s very basic London Dry but weak on flavours compared to Beefeater for example. There is some sweetness on taste to smoothen it a bit, but it’s still boozy strong so the base spirit here should be quite a raw spirit. For mixings it gives what you can expect for mass produced gin, hint of typical gin flavours and strong boozy body. Greenall’s is a typical supermarket gin which is been bought to homes but on bars you see it rarely. Very basic, cheap London Dry which can be recommended only for due it’s low price.
