Aviation Gin Bottling Note

Founded in 2006, Aviation gin takes its name from the Aviation cocktail, which was created in the 1900s. The gin takes a Dutch style rye spirit base combined with with juniper, lavender, anise, sarsaparilla, orange peel and cardamom, and the botanicals are steeped in grain spirit for 48 hours before they are redistilled. A pretty intriguing tipple, with a very handsome Gatsby-esque bottle. A fabulous gin to go its eponymous cocktail, though we wouldn't suggest you wing it. (Geddit?)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Crisp notes of juniper alongside delicate floral sweetness, parma violets, a touch of citrus peel and some green vegetal notes in there too, with a pinch of spice.

Palate: Wonderfully spicy notes, more prominent than on the nose, cardamom shining through and a scattering of cinnamon, with floral notes continuing.

Finish: Spices linger, along with the return of citrus peel.

Aviation Gin Reviews

Another fan

Love it! Quite junipery and it loves lemon and tonic. I agree with others that it has Tanqueray 10 like qualities. It is overpriced but if I saw it cheap enough I would buy it again.

Love this Gin

Like so many people, when I first tried this gin, I really did not like it. But, I tried it again, with a good quality tonic and in the right proportions and what a difference it made. I used Fever Tree original and I can honestly say this enhanced this gin so much that it will become a favourite.

Not bad

Not my favorite gin, but definitely not as bad as some of the reviews.

Awful taste profile

Horrible gin, but in fairness, I think it's the profile, not that the gin is bad.

I don't like cardamon, so to me this is just bitter and astringent.

One of the few gins in a G&T that I couldn't finish.

If you like a citrussy or traditional London style gin, I think you'll hate this.

If you like brockmans or Poetic Licence Northern gin, you'll probably love it.

Don't compare it, try it a few different times see if you can spot the different subtle flavors!

It is a very smooth Gin with lot's of subtle flavor, I think thats why people seem to think it's not as good I love Tanqueray 10 gin but it's very juniper berry, this has that but a little more subtile, I really enjoy it with lemon and tonic water, fresh lemon. I have to say I've had a LOT of so called great gins, but I think people get a little booze snobby, I will continue buying Aviation I like it and discover new subtle flavor every time I have an ice cold glass. Give it a chance, wait till you've tried it three or four times and don't compare it to other gins, I think you'll find it very interesting and tasty.

Not great, but not awful either.

I love the bottle. This perhaps is where it ends. I was expecting a juniper hit that just isn't there. It's not a bad gin (for me anyway), I'd put it on a par with Bombay Sapphire. Not great though. Still love the bottle though.
