Coming to you here are five orange gin brands utilizing an array of oranges known and found in certain regions of the world that provide a unique experience of flavor bursting cocktails.

Although orange gin can be created using different fruits and herbs that result in the bright color, like clementines, saffron, and floral notes, we have chosen to focus on a few orange based spirits that provide both the color and flavor of orange in each sip. So which orange gin brands should you try? How to make your own? Meet the brands,

Beefeater Blood Orange Gin:
With inspiration dating back to 1876 comes a zest-filled blood orange infused gin featuring 10 botanicals. The flavors of juniper and orange are front and center with a sweet yet tangy flavor, while the spirit is balanced perfectly to be enjoyed on its own or in a cocktail.


 

Chase Seville Marmalade Gin:
A mix of sweet meets crisp with the use of fresh oranges and orange peels. Unlike most gin brands, Chase Seville uses apples as the base of their spirit, creating a more fruity taste. Mixed with the sweetness of Seville oranges, juniper and herbs are also added as a balancing element that results in a gin that is fruity and fresh.

 

Malfy Con Aranica:
A taste of sunshine in a bottle. Malfy uses the combination of Italian oranges with Sicilian blood oranges to create a handpicked vibrant citrus flavor. The use of the two oranges results in a pure and potent orange flavor that is hard to miss and is instantly noticeable when opening the bottle.

 

Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla Distilled Gin:
Tanqueray provides a bittersweet taste with hints of the Mediterranean by the use of Sevilla oranges for a zesty and fruitful flavor. Although the recipe has been around for a while, it took 140 years for it to see the light of day and become an award winning gin. Suggestion from the makers, enjoy best with plenty of ice and some tonic water to fully experience the flavor.

Interested in making your own orange gin?

The process is easier than expected. Start by picking your favorite gin, we suggest ones with notes of citrus already in it, and steep it with your choice of orange citrus. Anything from blood oranges, clementines, tangerines, region specific oranges. Allow the peels and rind, the white part of the peel, to sit in the gin for a few days to a few weeks and absorb the color and flavor before serving it in your favorite gin cocktail.
