Gin reviews

GreatGins is one man’s mission to experience, share and inspire with everything great about gin… hence my gin reviews.

The world of gin is vast and expanding. There are countless different expressions. Keeping up can be a challenge, let alone knowing where to start.

Great Gins whisky reviews aim to give a balanced opinion on whiskies old and new from an avid whisky enthusiast. For round up posts, see posts like my premium gin reviews, my every day gins reviews or my super premium gin reviews. For individual reviews of some interesting varieties, by all means, dive in.

As things stand, there really isn’t all that much information available to those of us interested in exploring the wonderful whiskies of this world. Great Gins as a site exists to try and change that. Hopefully, my gin reviews are a good start.
