Gordons Alcohol-Free & Tonic
It’s likely you’re already aware of Gordon’s London dry Gin given it’s been a nation’s favourite tipple since 1769. Over their 250 year history, Gordon’s has gone from strength to strength and has now moved with the times and offered an alcohol-free version of their gin.
The alcohol-free gin uses the same botanicals as their big brother and then undergoes a rather secretive distilling process to remove the alcohol so you’re left with a similar tasting alternate option to the hangover-inducing London Dry Gin.
I tried out the pre-mixed Gordon’s Alcohol-Free and tonic version over some ice. See what I thought of this premixed cocktail below.
Is Alcohol-Free Gordon’s Gin and Tonic any good?
Well, out the bag it’s pretty realistic. Literally tastes like an authentic gin and tonic although the roughness of the gin is missing (which some people may think is a good thing). You can certainly taste the juniper berries and the tonic used is pretty decent. This pre-mix cocktail does come with a ‘hint of lime’ which to be honest wasn’t really needed as I never have fruit with my GnT’s. Overall though very tasty if a little sweet alcohol-free cocktail.
Aroma & Appearance
This alcohol-free gin and tonic had a very similar zesty aroma to an alcoholic version and poured into a glass with some ice it would be hard for someone to tell the difference.
This drink is vegan-friendly and gluten-free with a very low-calorie count. Frustratingly it is actually quite difficult to find in supermarkets; although a bottle of alcohol-free Gordon’s gin is pretty easy to locate we hope the pre-mixed cans will be more accessible in the coming months.
