Honest Verdict

The best way to describe Bloom is that it’s a gin for non-gin drinkers. It’s very floral with a definite sweet edge, and as a result it needs careful pairing from a garnish perspective. If you have a bottle of this, you absolutely need to have it with strawberries!

What other experts say …

Juniper Diaries  says … Uncorking (yes it is stoppered with a cork) and sniffing the neck of the bottle punished me with a rather unpleasant scent of wet earth and slight mouldy/musty smells. Wiping around the inside of the neck with a clean damp cloth eliminated the smell and replacing the cork with one I had kicking around saw it banished for good. I assume this bottle was corked but luckily these unsavoury scents didn’t seem to taint the gin. Pouring a little into a glass and sticking my nose in for a good lung-full revealed a slight alcohol smell and mild botanicals – generic fruitiness and very faintly floral. Bloom’s nose is certainly light on the juniper.   Continue reading review …

Gin Foundry  says … Moore, both as a gin fan and distiller, is very aware of the line at which point a gin is no longer recognisable as such – Bloom may have a distinct citrus and floral mix, but is is also distinctly recognisable as gin with a clear juniper presence and is not one of those gins that have run away from their heritage. It may not be a traditional gin and is probably more suited for palettes that appreciate sweeter, more floral flavours, but it is unmistakably gin. We would recommend pouring it with soda water rather than tonic, as this really allows the flavours to sing in your glass and makes for a lovely Summer drink. Incidentally, the recommended signature G&T garnish of strawberries also works well.  Continue reading review …

The Guardian  says … According to the blurb this gin is (as you might expect given the name) “inspired by the classic aromas of England’s country gardens.” Sure enough our tasters found it “very floral, but warm too. A bit girly.” Probably more one for a summer’s G&T than a cocktail.  Continue reading review …

The Gin is In  says … The taste is bold and unraveling. There are not a ton of botanicals in here: only seven. I want to say that each one of them clearly does their work in here and combined to create a luxurious rich flavor. The mouth feel is somewhat oily, somewhat thick. Begins quiet for a quarter of a second: nothing. Then the juniper jumps out at you. Honeysuckle and bright citrus, just a hint of peppery tea. If you breathe in deeply while tasting you get a bit of the chamomile. The finish is peppery without ever being sharp. The finish is long and flavorful, juniper lingering long and dry but never hot.  Continue reading review …
