Sainsbury's Own Brand £16 Gin Beat Tanqueray, Beefeater And Gordon's In Taste Test
There's no need to splash out on expensive gins for a taste of luxury anymore, as Sainsbury's own brand of the tipple came out top in a blind taste test against other premium spirits.
Sainsbury's 'complex and balanced' spirit costs just £16 a bottle, and is distilled four times using 10 botanicals in the recipe.
Another 11 juniper-based spirits were tasted in the test, including a number of other supermarket label gins, which all raked in decent scores.
In fact, four out of the top five ranked gins in the test were supermarket own-brand.
ASDA's Special Triple Distilled Premium Gin scored a still impressive 75 per cent, and Lidl's Hortus Original London Dry Gin came in just behind with 74 per cent, both £16 a bottle.

"Well-known brands are being challenged by a range of impressive supermarket offerings, showing how strong the demand for gin is now."
