Copper Head- the alchemist’s Gin Set
Copper Head- the alchemist’s Gin Set



Copperhead London Dry, I have positioned it in the grey area on the grid C3.

This is because it picks up on all four major flavour profiles in terms of its taste. The juniper and orange zest  flavours are in balance which gives a slight sweetness in the finish.The over all effect is one of elegance, ie no one thing overpowering another.

This is a great party piece set. An Alchemist definition is ‘the practice of any seemingly magical process of transforming or combining elements into something new’.

This Gin Set is a lot of fun!

With this gin, if you get standard tonic water and ice with the copperhead gin, and a slice of lemon, you get a superb classic gin and tonic. That is version one.
Version two, you get the same measure of gin but add one drop of one of the bitters in the set, and then repeat the ice, lemon and tonic.you get a completely different tasting gin and tonic. Version 3 and 4 are by using the other two bitters.
That’s four different drinks. Now change the tonic water, say a Fevertree Mediterranean tonic water and repeat the same process , that gives you a total of 8 combinations! Now try with say an Elderflower tonic water that gives you a total of 12 combinations. how much fun is that. One bottle of gin three bitters 12 different serves.

Dauntless Gin
Dauntless Gin

Price includes 2nd class post for UK only, (can only be sent as single bottles)


Dauntless gin sits nicely in position C2  of The Gin Sat Nav grid.

Dauntless is a premium quality and strength London Dry Gin. Dauntless’ 43% alcohol level distinguishes it from lower strength alternatives. The grain spirit is made only from English Wheat, sourced from the North of England.

The distillation process is using traditional copper pot stills, some dating back to the 1800’s. There are fourteen botanicals in the mix including specially selected blue and white poppies. We believe these give a unique element to the taste but they are also there for remembrance.

London Dry Gin is all about the production process used, and this is the best there is, it’s where a traditional still is used and where the re-distillation process is using only approved natural flavourings. No colours or sweeteners are added.

Gin Tutorial Intermediate 10th July 2019 or Round 2 !
Gin Tutorial Intermediate 10th July 2019 or Round 2 !

Having done the Basic tutorial, you get a good idea of the styles of Gin out there, the ideal tonic/gin ratios and the dramatic effects garnish can make.

The Intermediate tutorial develops on this by showing how and allowing you to taste new gins and allocate them to one of the 25 grids on The Gin Sat Nav chart. The Art of Discernment is not so much about yes I like it, or No I do not. But rather ‘ i think this is more like this style because or this is well balanced, distinctive because etc’ so developing a vocabulary that is appropriate and fun.
