Summer is just around the corner and there isn’t a much more summery drink to enjoy in the garden than a G+T!

Since the rise of gin started a couple of years ago the market has been flooded with premium gins to pick from and it’s sometimes hard to know what to go for, so we’ve taken the guess work out of it for you with our tried and tested list of gins!

It was a hard job, but the UKMums.TV team has tested all of these out and we’ve even complied tips on mixer pairing and garnish so you can perfect your tipple.


Copper Rivet Dockyard Gin (RRP £29.99) – Fresh and fruity! Notes of citrus and a little elderflower.

Palmers Gin (RRP £28) – Warm, and a little nutty! Earthy spices come through as a secondary note.

  • Pair with: Mediterranean tonic
