The Scandalous World of Gin
Thank you for joining us at ‘The Scandalous World of Gin’ we hope you had a gintastic evening with us. The most common question we get asked at our gin experiences is…
‘Where can I buy this gin from?’
…and so we thought we would create a shopping list of what we served so you can run out and purchase some more for later.
If you loved the event as much as we loved hosting it please do tell your friends, family and colleagues…tell anyone who loves gin…we’d love to see them at our next event.
Arrival Gin & Tonic - Heston Hidden Orange Christmas Gin
Taking inspiration from the Heston Hidden Orange Christmas Pudding, this is a decadently spiced gin with a distinct and delicious festive character your guests will adore. It's also a great base for seasonal cocktails
Dry British Gin distilled with a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and orange peels. Serve as a festive Negroni with an orange peel garnish or simply with tonic.
Bols Zeer Oude Genever
A traditional genever from popular Dutch drinks producer Bols, who can track their genever heritage back to the 16th century!
Gin No. 2 - Bathtub Old Tom
This sweetened style of gin gives off a lovely fruitiness on the nose with pronounced botanical notes.The light sweetness seems to add body to the gin, which helps accentuate some of the inherent juniper and orange flavours. This is a great example of Old Tom gin and fans of the style will not be disappointed in the slightest
Gin No. 3 - Portobello Road Gin No.171
On the front of the palate Portobello Road Gin has a generous slug of juniper, the mid palate has a sustained, fresh citrus character from our use of lemon, bitter orange and coriander, which then develops into a sweet peppery finish, achieved by the use of liquorice and nutmeg.
Gin No. 4 - Gin Mare
Gin Mare has long been the reference point for a gin that’s pushed the boundary of what a gin could taste like, with rosemary, thyme, olive, and basil included in the botanical line up. It’s unusual, savoury and incredibly well balanced.
To taste, juniper comes through with a burst of basil, before rosemary, thyme and coriander emerge. The combination is quite unique, making Gin Mare a much different offering to other gins on the shelf. It can be considered as being part of a very short list of “Herbal” gins, and when served with the right tonic, makes for a delightful aperitivo.
The tonic we paired this with was Peter Spanton Cardamon Tonic.
