Kirkland London Dry Gin

The Schtick: This is a Kirkland branded release from Costco Warehouses. Distilled by an undisclosed producer, this gin comes to us in a London Dry Style for a reasonable price. Let’s see how it is.

Review #1222 | Gin Review #18

Distiller: Undisclosed

Bottler: Kirkland

Brand: Kirkland


ABV: 41.5% ABV

Age: N/A

Nose: Super bright and fresh. Juniper, citrus, floral and perfumey. Light confectioners sugar. Some pepper. Juniper really dominates, along with some coriander.

Taste: Syrupy mouth feel, richer than expected. Sweet, confectioners sugar, pepper, orange peel and juniper. Nice floral presence, with a bit of a corn note. Weird, but I like it.

Finish: Short, junipery and heavily floral, light ethanol here. It’s crisp and clean though and doesn’t linger on any one spice.

Overall: Good but not incredible, but full bodied and versatile. This works great neat, on the rocks or in a variety of cocktails. I’d buy it again, which is what I plan to do.

Thanks for reading!
