Dry January? Not for us. This month we are all about Ginuary!
Gin has exploded on the drinks scene over the last few years and now every palate is catered for. With inventive flavours and interesting serves, we’ve got something to suit everyone. Read on for our top 5 Ginuary faves.
Minus 33 Pink Gin Fizz
Made by those crazy booze geeks at LoCa Bev this is just as good as their original but with a little added magic! Sam and his team have created a new distillation infused with rose and hibiscus and its knockout! A pretty rosé colour and delicious with lots of ice and tonic and a slice of lemon. The floral notes work really well with lemonade too if you find tonic a little too bitter. We love it so much, we’ve added it to our cocktail menu as a gin fizz, mixed with lemon juice, sugar and topped with prosecco. A floral and citrus taste sensation!
The Gael Old Fashioned
We know what you’re thinking….an Old Fashioned has whisky, not gin! But this brand new and intriguing gin lends itself to this most warming and comforting of drinks.
A single malt gin, The Gael is distilled in Morayshire, which is traditionally considered the heart of the whisky industry. You can certainly tell that in the flavour with some really interesting whisky notes like heather, citrus and spice coming through. We’ve mixed it with sugar, a dash of bitters, poured it over ice, garnished with a twist of orange peel, and it tastes like a warm hug. A perfect winter warmer for those without a taste for whisky.
Harris Gin & Tonic
An iconic bottle design holding a deliciously refreshing gin. A heady juniper taste with a hint of pine and sea air. It hits you with a citrusy tang and we serve with fever tree tonic and a slice of frozen pink grapefruit to bring out the sweet citrus hit.
Tanqueray – Our House Gin
Our best seller and most popular gin. Its main botanicals are juniper, coriander, angelica root and liquorice, but none are heavy handed so it’s a mellow and smooth gin, great for mixing with flavoured tonics. We serve it unadulterated over ice with fever tree and a lime wedge. Its gin o’clock.
The Gin Bramble
Our take on the classic with Gordon’s gin (or your gin of choice), sugar syrup, lemon juice and crushed ice. With a shot of crème de cassis drizzled over the top. A refreshing and tasty brain freeze!
