Category: Spirit Reviews

Search through our drink archives to learn about cocktails, spirits, wine and beer from industry leaders and experts across the globe.

Our spirit reviews section contains an in-depth analysis of distilled liquor. We take a look at the production side and the history of each distillery before diving into each bottle itself. We believe in finding the primary, secondary and tertiary flavours of each bottle and showing them in a visual way. We want to give you best advice on whisky, gin, vodka, rum or tequila so you know what to buy for your home bar.

We take a look at the main categories of:

  • Whisky – Scottish single malt and blends.
  • Whiskey – Japanese, European or Irish pot stilled or American rye.
  • Bourbon – American Corn & Rye distilled spirit.
  • Rum – A pirates best friend.
  • Cognac – Grapes distilled from the Cognac region of France.
  • Tequila – All about that agave.
  • Mezcal – Tequila’s smokey cousin.
  • Vodka – No they don’t all taste the same.
  • Gin – London Dry, Old Tom. None of that flavoured crap.
  • Liqueurs – And the abundance of them.

Each bottle of distilled spirit holds a bouquet of flavour waiting to be experienced and we want to share with you our experience through our spirit reviews.

If you like our content, please feel free to contact us and let us know via email on or if you would like to feature or have a suggestion we would love to hear about it. You can find out more information on Gastronomer Lifestyle in our about page.

Happy Imbibing! Please drink responsibly.
