Gin, an aromatic and easy-to-drink liqueur, is a popular choice for lovers of mixed drinks. With juniper at its heart and a combination of spicy, floral and woody notes, gin can be flavoured with other fruits and botanicals to create unique drinks and cocktails. Later, people added gin, sugar and lime to the tonic and created the world’s first Gin and Tonic.
Here are a few of crowd-favourite gins you should know about:
Kyoya Shuzo Hinata Gin
This Japanese gin has aromas of juniper, herbs and a touch of citrus. A warm mouthfeel with refreshing flavours of chamomile and sweet spice like cardamom.
Hailing from Spain, this gin is crafted with raw ingredients gathered from various Mediterranean regions for distillation, including Italian basil, Turkish thyme and Greek rosemary. It has a strong base of botanicals with aromas of cardamom, green apple, rosemary and thyme, and a refreshing finish of citrus.
Ägräs Abloom Gin
This gin from Finland has been added with honey and hibiscus flowers during distillation, and has a rich floral aroma. On the palate is a balanced combination of juniper berry, wild angelica and hibiscus flowers and the extended finish is crispy with aromas of honey and citrus.
Recommended pairing: Q Mixers Spectacular Tonic Water
It has sharp flavour and high carbonation, and is not so sweet to let the subtleties of a great gin shine through.
* During the Wine & Spirit Fair, Harbour City, New Town Plaza and Times Square stores will be decorated with a beautiful, garden-like Gin Corner. Don’t forget to bring home your favourite gin, take a snap and share with your friends and family!

Made in the Champagne region of France using traditional methods. This wine has fine, delicate bubbles with notes of candied fruits, citrus and gingerbread. A complex first impression and a lingering finish.
La Cheteau Crémant de Loire Sans Sulfites Brut NV
Crémant refers to sparkling wines made in France but not within the Champagne region. They are produced using same wine-marking method as champagne. This bottle is from Loire Valley, and has notes of citrus and white flowers that emerge at the start of tasting that evolves into aromas of ripe white fruit and honey. Refreshing and tender on the palate.
Ca'del Bosco Cuvée Prestige DOCG NV
A sparkling wine made in the famous Franciacorta region of Italy, using grape varieties and the same wine-making method as champagne. Ca'del Bosco is one of the most iconic estates in the region.
Alta Alella Bruant Brut Nature 2017
Belongs to Cava, a sparkling wine made in Spain using the traditional method producing champagne, but the grape varieties used are very different. This wine is made with organic Xarel•lo grapes with a gentle white flower aroma, refreshing, crisp taste and good depth.
Hubertushof Riesling Sekt NV
Different from the other wines, the German sparkling wine known as “sekt” is made using the tank method. This fine sparkling Riesling has been sourced from the estate’s vineyards in the “Middle Mosel”, and is the result of meticulous hand selection followed by long ageing on the yeast for a zesty, fruity wine with invigorating acidity.
