Brookies Slow Gin - 26%Abv.
Brookie's Byron Slow Gin is the first of its kind. Made in the same was as Sloe gin but Brookie's Byron Slow Gin features a unique rainforest fruit native to the subtropical region of Byron Bay, the Davidson Plum.
Taste: 4.8/5 On opening the bottle there isn't a strong smell that comes out but this is made up for in the taste. Without a doubt one of the best gins i've tasted. Now I know its not a traditional gin and more of a Sloe but the flavour of this is incredible. A fruity taste of peach with notes of raspberries and of course plum, I would decribe this as perfectly sweet.
Bottle Design: 2.5/5 The bottle for me is what lets this gin down a little bit, When buying a gin you haven't had before you are going on 2 things, the decription and what it looks like, Luckilyfor this bottle it is mostly covered by a label, but as the bottle itself nothing special.
Label Design: 3.7/5 The label is very well presented, covering most of the bottle its needs to be good otherwise could be an eye sore, but hats off to the designer i think theyve done well here, perfect colours and the fonts too. Would be easy to notice on the shelf. Not too obvious but it also wont be hidden.
Value for money: 4.2/5 I think it is fairly priced at £34.95, I would have put it anwhere from £28.00 - £35.00 for the 700ml Bottle. Nothing screams premium prices from this gin but then again it doesn't give the cheap impression either so I would say its about rightly priced
Overall: 3.8 / 5
