Boodles British Gin Bottling Note

This London Dry Gin, repackaged and rejuvenated under new ownership in 2013, takes its name from Boodle's gentleman’s club in St. James's, London and is now produced at the Greenalls distillery.

Famous members of Boodle's gentleman’s club included former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and James Bond author Ian Fleming, which of course makes Boodles an obvious choice for a Vesper.

Churchill also enjoyed gin however and Boodles may have been his favourite brand. I read a story the other day of how Winston added so little vermouth to his Gin Martinis that sometimes a mere glance in the direction of France would suffice!

Boodles British Gin Reviews

Prefer Beefeaters

My go to is Beefeaters, favorite is probably Tanqueray, for a perfect dry martini. Boodles tastes a little harsh and less aromatic to me. Probably a little cleaner than Gordon’s. Beautiful packaging, but Beefeaters is less expensive and better in my opinion.

The very best!

I love it and the smooth taste is the best part for me. It makes the best martinis!

2nd February 2020

Will recommend to all

It is wonderful. A Benedictine monk who taught me in college loved it. I rediscovered it later in life . Introduced an elderly widow friend to it . Thanks

I love martini's, straight up and icy cold and have tried them with many different gins over the years, finally settling on Beefeaters for a long time. Now that I have finally found Boodles in my local liquor store I will be using only that for

I had read about Boodles Gin in books for many years but had never seen it for sale in our liquor stores. Then this past Christmas (2018), there it was on the shelf of my local LCBO. I immediately purchased a bottle putting my usual Beefeater Gin back on the shelf, and after having my first taste I knew that it would be my gin of choice in the future. My dad introduced me to Beefeater martini's when I was 18 (shhh, he was not supposed to do that until I was 21) and I had made them his way ever since (I am 76 at this time), but I am now making them only with Boodles gin which I find to be a much smoother gin than any I have tasted before. Btw, I live in Ontario, Canada

Right balance and favorite martini gin

I drink a lot of martinis––better phrased I drink a martini or two most cocktail hours (6:1). I have tried most of the major and some minor gins. I keep coming back to Boodles. Some distillers try to stuff too many herbs and flowers in their gin; some filter it so it is too "clean". Boodles is the right combination for me. If I were on a desert island I'd wish for a case of Boodles to wash up on the beach.

Not Much of a Drinker, But When I Do........

I am not much of a drinker, but after trying a few other brands of gin, not liking them, my husband came home with Boodles. I really like it, and have gotten several other people on to it. Very smooth, and does not give me headaches. Love my Gin and Tonics, slice of lime. Mmmmm.

24th December 2018


I love Boodles Gin! I never thought I would be gin person BUT I had a Vesper at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec, Gin, Vodka, Lillet Blanc and a dash of bitters. Absolutely the best, sexiest martini ever!! When I got home I wanted to make a cocktail with similar ingredients and this is what I have come up with: four ice cubes, 1.5 parts of Boodles Gin, .5 parts St.Germain, .75 parts Lillet Blanc, topped with soda and a piece of lemon peel. Just lovely!!

20th September 2018

Great gin for a gin drinker particularly in a dry martini up.

That best! My favorite brand of gin always

Boodles; the Acme of British gin!

Boodles British gin is unsurpassed in flavor, viscosity.
And is the ultimate G & T mixer
With Q Indian tonic water.
Leaves a small bite in the throat in a stupendous martini
But makes its serious presence known, always.

12th August 2018

The only gin for me

Never liked gin until I discovered Boodles. Now it's my go-to drink.

20th June 2018


I live in US Texas and literally started drinking alcohol in my late 40’s, I love two drinks, Boodles Gin and small amount dry vermouth, and Scotch (Glenmorangie) straight. But Boodles always makes me grin, not sure why BUT I LOVE IT👍🏼🤙🏼😁

A heavenly elixir!

As they state, “A Proper British Gin” by the people who (although they didn’t originate the beverage) the English perfected the art of gin making; and in this humble sot’s opinion it is one of their masterpieces.

1st May 2018

Dull, flavourless, uninteresting.

It doesn't taste of gin. It tastes of whatever you mix it with. I'm a huge gin fan but not of this. This is a gin for people who prefer vodka.
It's by no means horrible, it can't be. It tastes of nothing.

6th April 2018

Gin fads come & go. Boodle's stands alone at the top.

Boodles's tastes like what London Dry Gin is supposed to taste like, and London Dry Gin is what gin is supposed to taste like. It's my standard of reference.

9th July 2017

Summer is here in Canada and Bootles gin is your loyal reward program!

Excellent suttle flavours compared to harsh Bombay gin. Best with 5oz tonic... Lots of ice... Tall glass... Double lime and zest the rim !

18th June 2017

The best Gin ever.

Boodles mulberry gin definitely the best gin my wife and I have ever tasted and luckily found it in M&S afraid we have now become addicted to it. Not that we are complaining.

17th February 2017

I said no at first.

It can be a bit harsh in the mouth on first taste but it does mellow and become a gin that develops. It's interesting and good to try, it's not my fav. but it is good, true gin flavours and a surprising back notes keeps you thinking.....

Yes I can see why drinkers like it... it's a drink that can run the night......

1st November 2016

Robust Gin

Stronger than Bombay Saphire but with a smooth after finish.Very enjoyable.

Hidden treasure

I first tried Boodles gin in 1979 as an alternative to Tanquery. while I still enjoy Tanquery , I feel that Boodles is a better gin. I understand that one's gin preference is purely subjective, but I strongly encourage anyone who has not tasted this gin to do so. This is a very smooth gin, perhaps a stealth gin. Take the time to savour its flavor and imbibe carefully. During the fall and winter holiday season, add a splash of cranberry juice cocktail to a G+T. Try it, you'll like it!

Acker Review

Well this little beauty caught me by surprise.
What a fantastic gin.
Good enough just over ice or with F/T.
Holding court with the more expensive gins in my collection.
Acker rating 5/5

31st May 2016

More than 50 years of great drinking

Like the old bottle design, but would buy in a "milk bottle". Light on the ice...nothing added to pollute the great taste!!!

1st April 2016

A Boodles newbie

OMG! This makes the best martini. And like Sir Winnie, I like it VERY dry. So much more flavour. What a treat to find in Canada. Can't wait for summer to try it in a G&T on a hot afternoon.

5th March 2016

Gin lover

Generally drink rye in our cold winter months, read John D McDonald novels with Travis McGee as the hero! BIG fan of Boodles, I kick it back a notch with a splash of soda water, lots of ice and a dash of bitters, cheers, from the colonies

2nd March 2016

Finally I decided to like gin.

I never really liked gin until I accidentally tried Boodles. Love it.

6th January 2016

Boodles Gin. Love it!!! From Canada

Canada stopped importing Boodles Gin over 25 years ago. Recently I found it on the market again. It was just as smooth and delicious as I remembered. I am so happy to have it back!!

21st December 2015

Delightfully oily

In Canada it's also 90.4 proof (not sure why it's 80 in the UK...) but nevertheless it's not your average Bombay Sapphire. It's almost slippery. Best in martinis in my opinion (or with tonic; no ice, no slice.)

9th October 2015

Boodles Gin

fucking delicious. Strong. 90 proof.

20th February 2015

Long time fav

I've been enjoying (straight, a tad of ice only please ) this gin for so many years I cannot count so high. My husband tried to fool me with refilling the bottle, but there is no substitute. I really prefer the old bottle design, but I'll try "slumping" the new shape in a kiln and I'll bet it will make great snack dishes and spoon rests. A new business perhaps? Great gin and with an open mind I've tried many. Hendricks is also very fine as is The Botanist, but both have such unique perfume I save them for a change of pace.

22nd December 2014

Love it

Couldn't be any smoother. I like that the botanicals do not include any citrus elements, and that the coriander, juniper, etc have a chance to really shine. I have tried most of the best gins and this one is in a tie with Old Raj for my favorite.

In the US, it is sold at 45.2%ABV (90.4 Proof). I understand that in Britain, it is sold at 40% ABV or 80 Proof. Neither is particularly weak, although I prefer the higher ABV, the warmth it imparts adds to the enjoyment.

3rd October 2014

Ok but no Monkey 47

Being a new Gin drinker i appreciate my review may not carry much weight but i put it behind Monkey 47, The Botanist and Sacred in the list of Gins i have enjoyed.

7th June 2014

Low proof? Prove it!

I've enjoyed my first bottle of Boodles for the last couple of weeks, and it's 45.2% alcohol by volume, which I believe equates to 90.4 proof. Weak? Methinks not. Not a bad gin at all...good flavor and snappiness.

6th May 2014

I started drinking Boodles in the mid-70s

Was 80 proof then, as well. (40% ABV) And delicious on ice with a cocktail onion...

25th October 2013

Never seen Boodles at any proof other than 80

The last time I had some it was 40%, and that was in the early 80s. Some people bought it for that reason.
