Review: Cricket Club Gin

Review: Cricket Club Gin


From the out-there world of saffron gin we return to something more traditional, a relatively straightforward London style gin called Cricket Club (from the folks at Indio Spirits).

86 proof and crisp is a fresh apple, Cricket Club isn’t overly surprising. A moderate hand with the juniper helps some of Cricket’s other charms come through: Decent citrus, coriander, and — in a bit of whimsy from the distiller — a touch of lemongrass on the palate. The finish is dry and short, though it’s surprisingly sweeter than most other gins I’ve reviewed.

Cricket Club is a versatile gin that works in all kinds of cocktails because it’s so mild. If you don’t mind having on the bottle the name and image of a sport you’d probably never consider watching in your life, well then, have at it.

86 proof.

    Nice and straightforward gin. Average smoothness.

    Nice and straightforward gin. Average smoothness. I detected a bit of pine in the flavor as well as juniper.

    I’m not a fan of the lemongrass and find it overpowering.
