The definition of the brand released in the Chinese Year of the Dog (2006) begins with the bottle. It is dark, stout and crowned with a spiked color around the neck, making it is as eye-catching as the liquor inside is captivating. Bulldog Gin is not a gin that will reform the vodka drinker. No, this gin is for lovers of gin; real gin, filled with an array of flavors not found in any other spirit, the gin that set the Martini apart from every other drink. Bulldog is complex, to say the least.

This is one good Gin.
Smoooooooth! As good or better than Hendricks at half the price. My new top shelf gin.
BULLDOG is quadrupled distilled, triple filtered, and infused with the taste and aromas of its twelve selected botanicals. Made from traditional copper pot stills and a painstaking distillation process, it exudes a smooth and harmonious texture with distinctive flavor, while seductive notes of fruit and citrus lend a refreshingly crisp character and balanced finish, rendering it the most mixable gin.
90-95 Points Wine Enthusiast (Superb): The nosing passes find classic London Dry aromas of juniper with assertive, prickly spirit and citrus. The palate entry is creamy, juniper-heavy and curiously chalky; the taste profile at midpalate is herbal, piney and citrusy. I like this gin a lot. Superb/Highly Recommended.
2008 Spirit of the Year Restaurant Magazine: Sold in a stylish black bottle and made using less traditional botanicals such as poppy and dragon eye, it claims to be "the world's most mixable gin." We will be working to confirm this.
The New York Post: A bracing mix of botanicals that make BULLDOG one of the most flavorful boutique gins on the market.
GQ Magazine: Drier than most, and exotic in taste, perhaps due to the addition of a botanical called dragon eye.
