The Local Gin Co. gin subscription review

Discover a new favourite gin made near you – we tested The Local Gin Co.'s gin subscription club for a new approach to gin delivery

We tested the best gin subscription services to get gin delivered direct to your door. Read on for our full review of The Local Gin Co.


Discovery is the name of the game at The Local Gin Co., which takes a hyper-local approach to its monthly gin subscription club. Choose from one of eight English regions (or let Local Gin Co. pick for you), and you’ll be sent a bottle of small-batch gin made in that area. There’s also a box for pink gin lovers, an online gin shop (helpfully categorised by region, flavour profile and garnish) and regular events. Ordering is straightforward, with options to receive a box every one, two or three months. Each box is £40 and you can cancel anytime – we also like that you can easily switch regions so you can try gins from across the country.

Each box comes with a full-sized bottle of gin, garnishes and British tonic water, plus tasting and distiller notes. The packaging is quite functional, but more importantly is recyclable and completely plastic-free. We chose the South West as our region and received a bottle of Thunderflower Devon Dry Gin. Made in Teignmouth, it had a fragrant earthiness with herbaceous and spice notes, and came with dried orange slices and three bottles of Jeffrey’s tonic syrup – intensely flavoured concentrates that you dilute with water.

This is a great concept for a subscription. Today’s gin market is saturated with hundreds of brands and it can be overwhelming to choose new bottles to try. Local Gin Co. is a great way to unearth lesser-known regional gins that you might not come across in the supermarkets, and it would particularly suit those looking to support smaller producers.
