Calling all chocolate lovers!

Tasting notes

I’m often asked “what’s your favourite gin?” and my answer changes all the time. It changes with the days of the week, the mood I’m in, and how much I’ve had to drink the night before.

But then I tried Hotel Chocolat’s Cocoa Gin (42% ABV). A rich, smooth spirit with zesty lemon and sweet chocolate top notes, it has a rich cocoa aftertaste and clean finish. Made with cocoa from Hotel Chocolat’s St Lucian estate, it’s not too heavy on the juniper and has fresh flavours that work really well with a light tonic (I had Fever-Tree) and wedge of lemon to cut through the rich cocoa.

That was more than a week ago and I’m still thinking about it. Definitely my new favourite gin… for now.

Hotel Chocolat Cocoa Gin is priced at £15 per 250ml or £4 per 50ml
