The Top 3 Craft Gin Bottles of 2023
1. Clover Gin Lucky N°4 ($42.99)
Clover Gin N°4 is a small batch gin created by three sisters in Belgium. Named both for the presence of clover in the gin as well as the way the three leaves of the clover are each different but a part of a whole. Much like Charlotte, Ann-Sophie, and Nanuk, the Belgian sisters who played around with their gin recipe until they found the perfect one.
This lucky gin is made from green tea, orangy citrus, lavender, pear, cardamom, bergamot, and of course, clover. The combination is a beautifully crafted and nuanced Belgian gin with refreshing floral notes and an edge of spice.

3. Martin Miller Original Gin ($33.99)
Martin Miller Gin was founded a long time ago, by a man named Martin Miller. He had his hands in all kinds of things, but after ordering gin at a pub and finding it sadly lacking in quality, Miller decided to create the premium gin he would have wanted.
Martin Miller’s Original Gin is all about the process, in which earthy botanicals and citrusy botanicals are distilled separately, and then pot distilled following that. The multi-step process provides balance and complexity to this straight laced premium gin, and its trademark Icelandic water addition creates a nuanced flavor that can't quite be labeled but certainly is there. Martin Miller Gin is Tipxy's craft gin value pick at only $33.99 for a premium bottle, and can be used in cocktails or drank neat.
