Make No.3 Gin's romantic cocktails for Valentine's Day

No.3 Gin has been voted as the World's Best Gin, so you know it's going to be good. Here are three superlative serves to make at home – just in time for Valentine's Day

As the staple of any great drinks trolley, gin is a spirit that's amassed a loyal and fervent following. Whether your drink of choice is a standard G&T or a punchy negroni, we'd say it's fairly safe to assume that you've had your fair share of the stuff over the years. Not all gins, however, are made equal.

It took Berry Bros. & Rudd (London's oldest wine and spirit merchant, established in 1698) and a team of spirit specialists 730 days to painstakingly refine and create No.3 Gin, which has been voted the World's Best Gin. 

Blessed with a refreshing balance of juniper, citrus and spice, No.3 is a perfect choice for a refreshing gin and tonic or clean, crisp martini. 

The name and iconic key of the brand remain front and centre on the bottle, proudly reflective of Berry Bros. & Rudd, the brand owner's home at No.3 St James's Street. And as for what's inside that gorgeous exterior? Expect a bright, crisp and fresh bouquet with an uplifting welcome of juniper on the nose.

Those same notes of juniper are at the fore of No.3's flavour, supported by floral, summery notes and spicy, warm flavours of cardamom and an almost earthy dryness on the finish.

All of which, we think you'll agree, makes No.3 Gin an ideal addition to any gin cocktail. Try making one of these three classic cocktails at home with this elegant spirit.
