Lyre’s Dry London Spirit
This unique spirit has been impossibly crafted to capture the essence of a classic Gin, with flavours that are distinct and contemporary. Lyre's spirits don't just mimic, they have their own distinction as a premium, non-alcoholic beverage. Firm flavours with juniper and citrus. Earthy notes fill the mid-palate which has lovely vinous qualities. The pepperberry adds warmth and delivers a generous, dry finish.
How To Enjoy: As a classic Gin and Tonic with premium tonic water. Add a slice of pink grapefruit and rosemary to garnish. Or mix with Lyre’s Italian Orange, citrus, mint and Mediterranean tonic water for the Lyre’s Pink Gin Fizz.

Lyre’s Dry London Spirit
Lyre's Dry London Spirit left a lot to be desired.
Typically when opening a bottle of London Dry, there is a wonderful aroma of botanicals, primarily juniper. Lyre's Dry London delivered none of that. In the glass, the nose was subtle to the point of being weak. I had to bury my nose in the glass where I got a hint of citrus. Not unpleasant, but more along a New Western style gin than a London Dry.
In the mouth, there was ... almost nothing. It tasted like that bottle of gin in the back of your Nana's liquor cabinet that you've been secretly nipping from for 20 years and replacing with water. There was a faint, gin-like flavour in there somewhere, but it was mostly water.
Lyre's Dry London was completely lost when combined with a mixer. It just made the mixer taste watered down.
As someone who enjoys the traditional dry London style gin, Lyre's is the best I've tasted of the non-alcohol varieties.
I cannot recommend Clear Head Drinks enough. We purchased 6 bottles of Lyres Gin and Rum alternatives to offer guests at our wedding. The drinks were such a hit, but more importantly the customer service provided by Clear Heads Drinks was unparalleled. They tracked the order every step of the way to ensure it arrived in time for the big day. Thank you!
