Gorgeous Brockman's from the bottle to the elixir within …
 
Ginuine Ltd. is an English company that appears, for all intents and purposes, to have one product: Brockman’s Gin. Brockman’s is the brainchild of four serial entrepreneurs; brothers Kevan and David Crosthwaite, Robert Fowkes, and Neil Everitt. Going out of their way to keep a low profile in order to call more attention to the Gin itself, they started the company in 2006 and officially launched their new Gin in 2008. The production is subcontracted to Greenall’s—one of the most famous distilleries in England. Greenall’s is now De Vere Group, and so the corporate juggling goes on, but the beverages are top notch.
 
The most interesting thing about trying a new liquor is always “what makes it different?” In the case of Brockman's Intensely Smooth Gin—aside from the seeming oxymoron tag line “intensely smooth”—is that in addition to the more traditional botanicals infused into this Gin, they add blueberries and blackberries. This dials the juniper and spice back a notch and makes this Gin actually one that might be taken neat, with just a little ice. 
 
When addressing a new Gin, the first thing you notice is the aroma, and Brockman's Intensely Smooth Gin has got it all. You smell everything before you taste it whether you want to or not, and this Gin has a perfume quality and is… well, sexy. And the flavor is Gin, but smoother and fun. It kind of makes a regular London Dry Gin feel like the stuck-up older sister. Brockman's Intensely Smooth Gin is the hot, younger sister with the good personality and… you get the point. But you get to switch to this little beauty without the pain of a nasty breakup… just pour.

Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
