    Have trawled through all the online off licence chains I've found and no luck yet. Have fallen in love with this gin with ginger ale on several visits to the UK but cannot find it here anywhere. Has anyone spotted it?

    I’m sure I saw it in an O’Briens window.

    Tried two O'Briens' and online. Ended up with Whitley Neill blood orange but I'll keep searching for the other. Thanks

    Alcohol is prohibited but I know some people who've gotten away with it. Thanks though.

    Passing through Gatwick on a day trip next month and their duty free/airport shopping has a huge range of hard to get vodkas so I'm hoping they'll have this gin.

    Asking in an independent is probably the best bet; its likely to sell if they get a single case in.

    How is the Whiteley Neil?
    Any of their products I've tried have been an artificial tasting, sugary mess?

    Tesco and Sainsburys up north have it, if that's any use.

    Was going to ask the similar. Did not like their rhubarb version at all.

    The rhubarb one is pure sugar, sickly sweet. Will let you know about this one after tonight ;)

    There's a rhubarb vodka that is horrendous, too.

    Blood orange is too sugary too, fingers crossed for Gatwick in two weeks or else a trip to NI is needed

    Let us know if you get it in a UK airport. I fly around a lot for work/family etc so always looking for something nice to pick up on the way home.

    Would you say this is really only for someone who likes flavored gins?

    They have this in Terminal 2 at Dublin airport.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,088 ✭✭✭✭Caranica


    Update from Gatwick, they have it but only duty free. Talking to the guy he said it's only on the market just over two months and it should be more prevalent in the coming months. It is an artificial flavour but because Tanqueray are an old gin house they know their stuff and it is one of the better flavoured gins, not sugar laden.

    €46 in T1 this morning to EU travellers, will pick up a bottle next month when I'm back in the airport

    That's expensive unless it's for 1L. Only £25 in the supermarkets in the UK


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,088 ✭✭✭✭Caranica


    I've just spotted it in Dunnes on North Earl Street, €40 for 70cl. I've a €5 off voucher so I'm a happy camper!

    Tesco are now selling it. and i may be wrong, but I think i saw it on O'briens site now too.
