Ginger is known as the spice with the miracle making properties. It can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried or even better within ginger gin.
We’ve seen it time and time again be paired up with rhubarb for one of the nation’s favourite combinations of rhubarb and ginger gin.
In a similar way, ginger can be enjoyable on its own in gin or in conjunction with other flavours such as the ones listed below.
Stones Ginger Gin
On first sip you get the traditional juniper flavours coming through, with bursts of fresh citrus and spicy cinnamon.
The select botanicals are used in creating this gin, are complimented by the cheeky ginger kick, that stone’s is so well known for.
In terms of the perfect serve, serve on ice with Ginger ale, garnish with a slice of ginger and a wedge of lime.
Available on Drinks Direct for £17.95 (70 cl, 37.5% ABV).
Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb & Ginger
We were delighted to see the (literally and figuratively) stronger comeback of this tipple by Edinburgh gin as this Rhubarb and Ginger combination is the successor of the Rhubarb and Ginger liqueur.
The signature Edinburgh Gin classic has been infused with rhubarb and ginger to create this full-strength expression, full of natural flavour yet still distinctively juniper-forward.

Kokoro Gin Yuzu & Ginger Liqueur
This gin enticingly hints a zesty citrus flavour remaining elegant and understated as per the nosing. Not too sweet therefore not quite as sippable neat.
