Let’s do a little cotswolds gin review, a dry gin from the Cotswolds Distillery. This little herbal number brings lots of Eucalyptus flavor from the cardamom and coriander that comes off in the aroma.

You’ll find this gin probably plays well in cocktails in which cotswolds is the center focus: it brings lots of herbal aroma within that juniper wrapped flavor profile. There is a bit of citrus, not too unlike most gins (usually more predominant in American gins). Cotswolds, which retails for roughly $35-$40 isn’t playing off just a juniper-forward flavor like a Beefeater or Tanq, it’s really focused on the other more herbal bright flavors along side some cold Eucalyptus lingering flavor profile.
You can smell the cardamom rolling off this gin as you pour it, I’d say Cotswolds is probably for the more experienced gin palate and newbies may want to work on Bombay Sapphire or an American gin like Aviation or New Amsterdam…but who knows? You may love Cotswolds dry gin right out of the gate! Give it a tasting and review for yourself!
