How the best pink gin taste test worked

Four members of the olive team conducted a blind taste test to find the best pink gins, awarding gold, silver and bronze awards to the ones we were most impressed with. Entries all had to be pink in colour, but could be either sweet or dry, flavoured or classic in taste.

The results for the best pink gin taste test

Joint gold: Chapel Down Pinot Noir Gin

Comments: Produced using distilled pinot noir grape skins left over from vineyard Chapel Down’s grape harvest, this is a smooth, juniper-led number that has a delicate nose and a rounded flavour with light fruit and vanilla notes. One to choose if you prefer a classic gin rather than a flavoured one.

£44.48/70cl; amazon.co.uk

Joint gold: Chase Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo Gin

Comments: Created by distilling Chase gin with grapefruit and pomelo peel, this is a super-fragrant spirit, full of zesty tartness and well-balanced bitter notes.

£38.50; amazon.co.uk

Silver: Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Gin

Comments: Sweet enough to treat more like a liqueur, this had an appealing sweet-shop-like rhubarb and custard character, with subtle ginger heat. Enjoy served neat, over ice.

Bronze: Gordon’s Premium Pink Distilled Gin

Comments: A berry-led gin with prominent strawberry flavours, this had a dessert-like aroma and a syrupy mouthfeel – best for those who like their pink gins super sweet.
