Nothing like coffee - to me.
Tried this because of reviews - I found it most unusual! The gin itself is very nice indeed, it's just the strange aroma & added flavour which, to me, is nothing like coffee! More like a leather cleaner which I use on my leather suite! Or even 'woody' is how I would describe it. I added quite a bit of tonic, - at least in proportion of double/tripple tonic to the amount of gin. I will try it with lemon next time to try and overpower the 'woody' taste. Would I buy it again - no.
To be honest, I didn’t think this combination would work but I was wrong. Coffee taste is pleasant and subtle.
Love love love!
I LOVE this gin! I love coffee and I love gin - so what more could I possibly want! This gin is a real genius idea and I love the taste and the concept. Highly recommended.
I love coffee and I live gin but I wasn't sure I'd ever see them pairing well together... Then I came across this and was intrigued. It's absolutely delicious, it's able to be sipped on its own but also works surprisingly well with tonic. Definitely one to try.
Gin & gin lovers dream in 1!
This gin is delicious, especially for a coffee lover like me. The taste of coffee is strong but not too much. This goes lovely with some tonic water. This tastes and feels like a real premium gin.
Nice But Very Weak Coffee Taste
Love the packaging on Sipsmith beverages. They are so elegant and classy. I enjoyed this gin but the taste of coffee was very weak hence no 5* rating. I had it "neat" and with tonic. On it's own, I couldn't smell or taste the coffee. With tonic, there was a slight coffee flavour. I'm thinking of trying my own version of an espresso martini using this gin next week.
This has a subtle taste of coffee that isn't overp
This has a subtle taste of coffee that isn't overpowering, however the balance with vanilla and cinnamon makes it a smooth drinking experience. I shared it with my papa who isn't normally a gin fan (which is a good thing for me) but he really liked it too and had it neat! I had it with a plain tonic and it allowed the gin flavours to come out well.
Wasn’t keen on sound of this gin but the first taste won me over. I added an orange tonic and it was delicious. A background taste of coffee and a very smooth gin. Well worth trying it.
Quality coffee gin
I was quite intrigued to see Sipsmith Sipspresso coffee gin on shelf and as I love coffee and gin so I decided to give it a go. I think it taste best with tonic mixer as all the different flavours get released nicely. Its very good gin and you definitely can taste a bit off coffee and vanilla.
Expected stronger coffee flavouring and aroma.
If I hadn't known this was a coffee based gin, I would never have guessed it. The aroma and flavour of coffee is barely there. We opened the rather gorgeous looking bottle, and expected so much more than what hit our noses. It smelt like alcohol and reminded me of a standard non-flavoured gin. With ice and tonic added, there was a very small aroma of coffee coming through. I still couldn’t taste coffee but I could taste vanilla, but nothing else. I found it quite bitter. I tried it with an elderflower tonic, which added some sweetness to the drink and made it quite refreshing. I think maybe our choice of mixers was not a good partner for this gin. However, I think this gin might be better in a cocktail style drink to bring out the full flavours.
