Greenall's... what have you done?

Like so many others
You have altered the flavour of this gin. It used to be my very favourite, it had a most distinctive taste, but it is slightly bitter now, I don't feel like buying it again. It used to be stronger than the run of mill others, but now, it's not a priority to add to my shopping list.

The reduction s alcohol content has reduced the quality considerably. If you wanted to make money by going down the cheap route Greenall's fair enough but did you have to leave the people who really liked your gin no place to go. I urge you to bring out a 40% (or higher) gin of the flavour and quality you were producing before you dropped the alcohol content. I for one would be prepared to pay a bit more for that. If it were say £17 it would still be good value for money. As it stands I will not buy your gin again.

I am furious at finding out on New Year's Eve that my favourite gin has followed the Gordon's route, sneakily reducing from 40% to 37.5% behind my back. I will never buy it again.

Bizarrely, my local Co-op here in the UK had one bottle of the 40% Greenall's left among the 37.5% version of the new offering which has the bright green, modern branding you see in the picture. I've tried both and the 40% version is gorgeous and makes the perfect G&T. The 37.5% version is a much lesser product in every way. Where do I start? watery, lacking in flavour, much shorter finish and generally tastes cheap. What Greenall's have done to their gin is nothing short of criminal.

Greenall's Gin is still 40%ABV here in Texas USA. Still an excellent gin at a great price!

Not a bad gin, seems a bit sweet with full fat tonic but has pleasant flavour. Price for price with similar it holds it's own against the mass produced Gordon's et al but have to say that drunk neat, the Greenalls is very smooth compared to others End of day you get what you pay for, always got a bottle of tanqueray for when guests have left....

If you are mixing gin and drink more than one Greenalls is an excellent value!

I used to love Greenall's Gin but what others have said here is true... It used to be a 40% vol product at a very reasonable price. By reducing it to 37.5% it's now in a different market with all the others and it just isn't worth it at the price. A good deal of the pleasure of a bottle is just having something a little bit different. Sometimes it's a nice bottle, other times it's having something just a little stronger. Having a gin at 40% gave at least some confidence you weren't getting same gin that fills other generic bottles. On a taste note, I think it's lost its edge. Luckily our local Co-Op still has some of the real 40% stuff, but for how long... I'd note that according to Wikipedia Gordon's pulled the same stunt in 1992.

great traditional gin
dear reviewers & fellow gin drinkers,
forgive me but your comments are exactly what you seem to despise. Lowering ABV as an attempt for profit taking away value from you. Sound as if someone claiming that was a terrible boozer.
Regardless of the change, mind you hardly detectable on palate, it's a great traditional London Dry. In addition it's one of most affordable ones.
Best regards, Anna Smith

Dear Sir, How can I give a favourable review when you have craftily reduced the alcohol content from 40% down to 37.5%. Not only have I seen no reduction in price but more importantly the taste does not "pack" its previous punch and intenseness and therefore the absolute pleasure from your drink has been dramatically, adversely and irreversibly affected. For these reasons I see no good reason to continue buying Greenall's as you are now just the same as Gordon's etc. i.e. light flavoured and wishy-washy, and any value for money element pails into insignificance. Similar to previous commentators I have to assume that your previous high solely quality has been sacrificed on the altar of profit!!! Regards, Graeme Fisher

Like the good man Mark Deschamps, I too was a devotee of this keenly priced yet proper strength tipple. But then they set themselves upon the road of shame...

How can I give a favourable review when you have craftily reduce 40% down to 37.5%. yet I see no reduction in price. For this reason I see no good reason to continue buying as you are now just the same as Gordon's. The value for money element has now been lost. I have to assume that it was sacrificed on the altar of profit!!!
