I’ll be rocking the boat with this review, as the Gordon’s Alcohol Free Gin gets a LOT of good press!
But for me? I can’t do it. There is just too much of an air of industrial toilet cleaner that I can’t get past. It has wiffs of gin, but they are just dominated by an overwhelmingly chemical taste. So fake. Wondering why this might be, I checked the ingredients list. Whilst all other non-alc spirits I have reviewed to date consist of water, natural botanicals and one preservative (which you need because without alcohol you get no shelf life), Gordon’s really does read like the afore mentioned toilet cleaning chemicals.
Now there is a much bigger discussion here, to do with what’s exactly in our drinks and what we should be looking out for on labels if we’re concerned about what we put into our bodies; but that’s one I want to have with a qualified nutritionist and share with you another day.
For today, there are way too many numbers in this drink for me to be able to enjoy it, plus to me those numbers really do reflect the taste. Fake as f**k.
If you’re after that real gin flavour, my top recommendation is a Monday Distillery Classic G&T, the real gin taste without any of the nasties. But that is ready-to-drink. Not a bottle of spirit.
Ugh why am I still drinking this? The THINGS I do for you guys!
