It is said that gin was created around 1650 in the Netherlands by Dr. Sylvius as a cure for stomach ailments. Since then the spirit has had a long and turbulent history - from Dutch courage to Mother’s ruin to the Golden Age of cocktails in the 1920’s, gin has been a major player and favorite tipple the world over.

Delightfully fresh and rounded up front, with citrus, juniper and spicy notes immediately evident. The expected juniper follows close behind. Gunpowder tea, meadowsweet and coriander are all notable.
A versatile dry gin that is crafted using a unique combination of 22 botanicals that are hand-foraged locally and sustainably on the Scottish island of Islay. Strong aromas of green fruits and sweet wild mint awaken the senses to the natural flavors of Islay.
Some coriander and juniper, hints of liquorice, with faint hints of fennel, ushering in a citrus dominated finish.
This is a robust and powerful gin with plenty of spice, fruit and herb flavors. It’s very well structured, a citrus fresh start segues into pine and wood notes for a drying finish.
By famed Houston chef Robert Del Grande. A western-style gin that’s light on juniper and heavy on bright citrus and coriander spice. Texas pecans show up toward the finish and add some lushness to the spirit.
A delightfully curious liquid, infused with cucumber, rose and traditional juniper. The exceptionally smooth gin features a nice balance of subtle flavors, which include wonderful notes of flowers, fruits, roots and seeds from across the world.
The aroma is at once bright and complex with floral, spice, citrus, and anise shining through. There’s a citrus flavor quickly followed by the piney juniper, cinnamon, and cardamom throughout. Fresh green herbs are present as well, but delicately so.
A good amount of spiciness, with cinnamon and cardamom that moves onto juniper and angelica. Then there is some bright citrus, before a dry finish with hints of pepper and menthol from the Grains of Paradise and Tasmanian pepperberry.
Aromas of citrus peel, chamomile tea and a slight floral essence. The palate has a nice mouthfeel, with the citrus and chamomile, combining the slight juniper and lavender notes. Mixes well and is perfectly balanced.
A Mediterranean delicacy with a touch of mystery, distilled only under the light of a full moon. Light in body, and surprisingly soft and quaffable with an initial blast of citrus, which then transitions into creamy sweetness of grapes and strawberries. Finally, it tails off with a dry, spicy finish of anise and peppers.
Other ginger beers try to be both a spicy soda and a mixer. So they end up doing neither well. Q Ginger Beer is a mixer and a mixer only – it is spicier, more carbonated and less sweet.
Purpose-built to mix with London Dry gins. More bitter and a little sweeter than our original Q Tonic Water but with all the extra carbonation, Q Indian Tonic is crafted to complement the strongest, most juniper-forward gins.
Not too sweet. Clean and crisp with a gingery bite. And real depth from a subtle mix of rose oil and spices.
Spectacular club soda? Yes. As much carbonation as the bottle will physically hold. And a dash of Himalayan salt to make anything you mix with it even tastier.
Q Tonic Water has sharp flavor and high carbonation, so it doesn’t get lost in your drink. And it’s much less sweet so the subtleties of a great gin shine through. Q Tonic Water complements great spirits rather than overpowering them.
A mixer, not a soda, Q Grapefruit is fresh, bitter, and very tart. The secret? Grapefruits. There is nothing else like it. Add a squeeze of lime.
