Bottled and distilled right in the heart of Belfast. This is a gin that packs an almighty punch. With its signature style coined in the phrase ‘greatness through graft and craft’, this new gin on the block promises to wow until the very last drop. 

The Jaw Box Story

Based just outside the beautiful Belfast, there lies a vast 300-acre country estate dating back to the 16th Century that is home to the distillery and fields that the grains for their gin is grown and harvested. Triple-distilled on-site in traditional copper pots the distilled in small batches using time-honoured methods using a secret recipe of botanicals, including their local Belfast Black Mountain heather. 

With gin becoming a focal point in rich and poor homes across Belfast, this sassy spirit became a talking point in many a kitchen cross the wonderful city and thus Jawbox was named – the gin that everyone is talking about. With a classic London Dry at its heart and then jazzed up with a secret recipe of botanicals – this glorious gin is definitely something us at Hogarths will be talking about each and every night. 

The Jawbox family

With a tremendous trio of glorious gins – we can’t help rave about the brains behind this brilliant brand:

First up is The Jawbox Classic Dry Gin,  taking the lead as the showstopper to this triage but it is closely followed by two lavish liqueurs that taste amazing until the very last drop.

Bramble’ 

 Noun – a prickly scrambling shrub of the rose family, especially a blackberry.

Verb – to gather blackberries.

Hogarths – Blackberries to be enjoyed with gin

Growing up, many remember the days of foraging in woodland areas to find handfuls of blackberries to take home. Often with the mentality of one in the punnet and one in mouth, gathering these delicious fruits for pies, crumbles or even just to devour by themselves was a youthful memory many of us experienced as children.

So in homage of the simple yet beautiful blackberry we want to talk about one of our all time favourite perfect serves: Brockmans.

  • Cooled glass filled to the top with ice
  • 50ml measure Brockamans gin
  • Slowed poured Schweppes ginger ale
  • Generous garnish of fresh blackberries
  • Savour Every Sip

We often hear that gin lovers want to try a different mixer other than tonic. Brockmans and ginger ale is a marriage made in heaven and is a perfect serve that needs to be tried.
