The base gin for McQueen’s Violet Gin is their super premium dry gin. On the nose, this gin is strongly juniper led with a forestry aroma. After the juniper taste, there’s a rich vanilla sweetness with a light spice followed by crispy lime notes.

We’ve got an article about the best pink gins right here and an article about the best blood orange gins here. The parma violet is so popular due to the well-known British sweets from Swizzels Matlow called Parma Violets. Gins that use the parma violet often try to resemble the taste of these popular British sweets as closely as possible.

The Artful Pour is a more expensive premium gin brand with a lot of great quality gins. They distill gins like English rhubarb pink grapefruit to passion fruit which are all based on their Yorkshire dry gin. This drink is really sweet on its own does mean that a lot of people will probably like it when it’s drunk neat. The bitter taste a gin normally offers will be toned down quite a bit. For others, however, this added sweetness and less bitterness may mean that they might actually like a gin for the first time.

Boë Violet Gin is based on their award-winning Boë Superior Gin recipe, which is known for its earthy and floral flavor notes. A few of the botanicals used in their gin are cassia bark, rose petals, orange, ginger, licorice, and almonds. This gin should be served traditionally in a gin and tonic. The tonic tones down the heat of the peppery flavors this gin brings and makes for an amazing but stronger version of a gin and tonic compared to others on this list.To find out which violet gin would be the best for you to try out, it’s important to know what violet gin is exactly. Solway succeeded in their goal to recreate the taste of Parma Violets sweets. This gin has a very deep aroma of sweet violets. The taste is also quite sweet and floral but doesn’t overpower the spicy and piney juniper berries. Even though the violet gin is a bit sweeter due to the added violets combined with orange and lavender, you still get that great gin-specific piney juniper taste with this gin.
