Brockmans Gin

Creating Brockmans required the different skills of a group of very experienced and devoted friends. What brought them all together was an enduring fascination with this exciting and exotic spirit. Their combined knowledge of gin history and the subtle nuances of different styles of gin and distillation proved invaluable as they set out to create a gin that was completely new and original. The one aim was to create a gin Like No Other; one that was so intensely smooth and delicious you would happily drink it neat over ice.

Honing the intricate balance of botanicals took time as they explored the vast array of complex flavours and taste combinations. It was a jointly funded passion where quality was never sacrificed and the finest botanicals were sourced from around the world. Hundreds of different recipes were tried before they arrived at the sensual, intensely smooth  Brockmans taste experience.

Honest Verdict

Brockmans would make the perfect Bramble cocktail because, by nature, it already is one. It probably works well in a gin fizz as well but a gin should taste good in itself, not having to be mixed with all matter of other things to the point where it wouldn’t matter what gin you were using.

Our Honest Verdict … Brockmans would make the perfect Bramble cocktail because, by nature, it already is one.

What other experts say …

Intoxicology  says … One of the first things we noticed on Brockmans website, was that the creators wanted to make a gin that was smooth enough to drink straight over ice. One of the first rules of drinking early was that when it comes to the major spirits (rum, vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey) you can drink the others anyway you like, but you don’t drink gin straight. Keep in mind, I was 22 when I had this belief. But even though I’ve learned the exceptions to that rule, the fact is Gin just isn’t traditionally drank straight. I was pretty shocked when I poured this over ice. It was smooth, it was flavorful, and the blend of botanicals really helped cover up the flavors that make most drinkers stay far far away from drinking gin with no mixer to balance. Also, while I was a bit sceptical from the beginning of how overly sweet the berries come across, they actually blend amazingly well with the coriander, and the citrus flavors of Brockmans.  Continue reading review …

The Gin Is In  says … Bright and floral on the nose. Strawberry, Hibiscus, a touch of sourness and a hint of raspberry. A little bit more traditional citrus bouquet in the mids, with a faint hint of ethanol in the lows. The bouquet is strong and intense but dissipates rather quickly in the air. Very inviting, very enticing. I love the nose on this.

The palate begins with a surprising amount of heat for being bottled at 40%. The early taste is unresolved with hints of gingerbread and angelica. The mids are where the notes that make Brockman’s stand out come to life. Raspberry lemon cake, a distinct sweetness, bright and robust. It begins to take on a more dry tone with blackberry and coriander, ripe berry. And then where it all ends up, it’s remarkably dry. Refreshing, and invites the palate to want some more. This dry finish to all of this sweetness is what really sets it apart from the vast majority of Contemporary fruit/floral forward gins. I loved the dry finish and found it to be the right balance of sweetness and dryness to make me want to drink it neat. Or on the rocks.  Continue reading review …
