The producers of Brockman’s take a traditional distillate made by distilling neutral spirits with fairly classic gin botanicals and then (in our opinion) ruin it by cold compounding a berry essence. Why did they add that fruit essence rather than a simple apostrophe? Shame! (Launched in 2010)

Dark berry/blueberry fruit dominates the nose with ‘gin’ aromas almost totally overpowered.
Oh dear! Traditionalists expecting a ‘gin’ will be disappointed and if like me, horrified, by what I liken to an artificial blueberry flavoured palate with juniper struggling to assert its presence.
The aggressive finish is at least a little more gin-like than the palate.
