Calling gin connoisseurs, G&T lovers or those that like the occasional tipple - we have picked out the best supermarket gins that are high quality and under £25. There is no mistaking that the UK loves gin - and that is one thing that we can say we do well!

Nothing quite beats a pink gin and tonic in the summer or a gin and ginger beer in the chillier months. The good news is that you don't need to spend a lot of money to get a good bottle of gin with so many options out there.

Whether you love flavoured gins like rhubarb and ginger or a classic dry gin - we have picked out the best supermarket own brand gins that cost under £25. We are all about high quality and low price tags.

Get your tonics ready as we take a look at the best own-brand gins from the UK’s top supermarkets like Tesco, Waitrose, M&S, Lidl, Sainsbury's and more.

The best supermarket gins:

The classic London dry gin is fresh, fruity and excellent served with tonic and a squeeze of lime.

Flavour profile: This crispy gin is flavoured with eight botanicals, a selection of berries and spices and hints of citrus.

Review: "This is good value for money; buy this because it is just as good as more expensive gins when you are adding tonic."

This subtle-tasting gin will bring some sunshine to your day no matter the season. The ingredients don't list aniseed, but reviewers have said that that is the initial taste, so if you love aniseed flavours, this is the one for you.

Flavour profile: This gin is infused with sweet basil, rosemary, thyme and lavender botanicals.

Heston's tip: Add an olive and a drizzle of olive oil to bring a new dimension to the flavour.

Review: "As always, Waitrose is at its best offering its own brand of gin - Heston Lazy Sunshine. Ironically enough, I discovered it during a summer period - while the sun was shining generously over Scotland :). This gin has a much milder taste than many other brands that I have tried. I totally prefer it this way."

The relatively low alcohol content (37.5%) makes this an excellent gin for drinking solo.

Flavour profile: You will find notes of angelica, cassia, coriander seeds, grapefruit oil, juniper berries, dried liquorice, orris root in this aromatic gin.

Review: "This is the gin you are looking for. It's dry, gin, and nicely balanced, suiting all manner of options of tonic/garnish/etc. It will deal with gin needs at the best of times, and the worst of times, and everything in between."

The seven botanicals are steeped for at least eight hours and include lemon and orange for a hit of citrus. There's also some bergamot for a kick.

Flavour profile: As referenced in the name of this gin, the most prominent flavour profile is citrus.

This aromatic and complex gin has a classic juniper-led taste and an affordable price.

Flavour profile: This gin has been distilled four times using ten botanicals and has a mild Turkish delight taste, notes of liquorice, and fresh pine.

Review: "Have been buying this gin for years. It stands up well against the more expensive brands. We always enjoy this."

The best-flavoured supermarket gins:

Rhubarb and ginger are an iconic duo when it comes to gin. The sweet and tangy rhubarb mixed with the warming of ginger spice give it its balanced flavour.

Flavour profile: The gin is flavoured with the natural oils from nine botanicals and is full-bodied with a hint of tartness.

Review: "This rhubarb and ginger gin is absolutely lovely. Perfect with tonic for a refreshing drink. There is just the right combination of the rhubarb and ginger flavours. This will be a favourite summer drink of mine."

This top-notch dry rose gin has been specially made for M&S by the Old Curiosity Distillery in Edinburgh.

Flavour profile: This gin is lifted by notes of juniper, coriander, Angelica root, winter savory and of course, rose water.

Review: "I absolutely love the taste of rose, so this works well for me. I love that it changes colour when you pour the tonic on. It would make a lovely gift too."

Pink gin is all the rage - not only does it look beautiful, but it makes a superb sweet drink for those that don't like intense gin flavours: the perfect summer or springtime beverage.

Flavour profile: The pink grapefruit and elderflower blend give this a fruity flavour. It also contains some traditional botanicals and strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant.

Review: "Perfect! This gin is the best I've tasted - really worth the price!"

This gin liqueur is perfect for chocolate orange lovers and has been distilled using eight botanicals.

Flavour profile: Think Terry's Chocolate Orange meets gin.

This gin has all the spring and summer flavours in a bottle. M&S suggests serving the gin liqueur chilled with prosecco.

Flavour profiles: Elderflower, blackberry, rosehip, and rosemary flavoured gin liqueur.
