I decided to diverge from our usual Whisky offerings to give you my thoughts on a summer favorite of mine.
Juniper berries, perfume, and dried citrus
Juniper berries, cinnamon, citrus and sweet sap
Warm winter spices and bittersweet lemonade
Thoughts: This is my favorite gin on the market and one of the few I would happily drink neat as well as mixed. It has a great price point (-25 quid) for such a tasty tipple. Great with tonic for the hot summer months (wishful thinking in Edinburgh right now) and an excellent addition to a hot Gin Toddy.
Gin Toddy Recipe:
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Directions: Mix gin, sugar and lemon in a mug. Add boiling water to taste. You can top off with a lemon slice and cloves to add a little something something.
