A bit of background

Distilled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, JP Adlam gin is produced in small batches, hand bottled and wax sealed to create a special drinking experience.

The Bottle

JP Adlam premium Yorkshire gin comes in a stocky, broad-shouldered bottle with a thick and sturdy base. Curved around the neck and stumpy, it comes with a wax-sealed cork top that makes the anticipation of opening extra special.

The look of the label is simple and clear – silver, white and grey to accentuate the juniper berry covered design.

On the nose

Upon removal of the stopper an enticing blend of fresh, sea breeze scents and spicy, nose-tingling notes hit the nostrils. You get the sense of a real depth of flavour from this gin before  it has even crossed your palate.


A reasonably strong gin at 41.5% ABV, it certainly gives you a wee glow. The initial sip packs a punch of spicy warmth from the star anise. However, that mellows and leaves a clean taste of juniper and tangerines.

Mixed with tonic

This is a versatile gin and works well with Mediterranean, elderflower or Indian tonic. Going with the latter, add the staple of ice and lime, but also consider a few black peppercorns for an extra kick. Due to its complex range of botanicals, citrus fruit or berries can compliment the gin nicely.

Lasting impressions

Billed as a premium gin, JP Adlam lived up to the hype and absolutely delivered as a drink for any occasion. Crisp, light, zesty and carries lime well. With a peppery kick and a nice finish of citrus, it is an ideal tipple as we enter the summer months.
