FAIR Gin is the latest addition to the FAIR portfolio which includes FAIR Quinoa Vodka and FAIR Rum.


Made from Fairtrade and Organic Certified botanicals grown with no additives, chemicals, pesticides or preservatives, FAIR Gin is the product of a partnership with a co-op of farmers in Central Asia along with local organic ingredients from the Cognac region of France. Juniper berries are sourced from a nature reserve in Uzbekistan, Central Asia and Fairtrade spices are sourced in the Kerala region of South West India.

FAIR Gin is produced in France from juniper berries, cardamom, coriander, calamus roots, angelica roots and Grains of Paradise. The botanicals are macerated for seven days before undergoing single distillation in batches of 200 litres. Distillation takes places in a hand-made alambic copper still called the Stupfler.

Bottled at 42% ABV, FAIR Gin is described as starting “soft and delicate on the palate moving to a fresh, strong juniper flavour with a balance of fragrant spices.”

In the glass, FAIR Gin is clear and has aromas of juniper, citrus and a hint of spice. On the palate, the juniper is more evident and leads onto citrus notes and peppery spice. The finish is long and warming.

We tried FAIR Gin neat and in a gin and tonic using Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic which we found didn’t overpower the vibrant notes of the gin. In a Martini, it fared well dry with a twist to complement the citrus and pepper notes.
