Suggested serve is one of my favourites this summer – pink grapefruit!
Served with FeverTree naturally!
We tasted their London dry style and then were quite taken by the sweeter Old Tom and the punchier Cocktail strength (specially blended to stand up to multiple ingredients). We now have the 3 set of the mini bottles at home to try out with cocktails!
The whole FeverTree range – including their newly released Lemon Tonic (like a bitter lemon)
Another gin representing for Scotland was Rock Rose.
This is named after the plant that is part of their regional botanticals – they also use Sea Buckhorn and Rowan berries.
The Old Tom, classic London Dry and the Sloe.
I tasted the Adnam’s Copper House before at the Clanchan gin tasting. We also got to try their First Rate Gin 🙂
(Naturally we bought some for home!)
They had the Dry gin 28 as well as a selection of their flavoured gins:
I really liked the tangerine gin, the pine blossom, not so much. I think blends in with the juniper flavours rather than standing out.
A welcome display from Bathtub gin!
They brought their whole range, the bathtub and the rubber duckies! They make their gin in the time honoured way of macerating the botanicals in the gin – this was done in bathtubs during the American prohibition – hence the name! The Oliver Conquest stocks the whole range!
This one was one of my favourite discoveries of Junipalooza! It has an aromatic bouquet, with foresty notes from Douglas fir and sage, which really come through in the taste, lovely!
Santamania is Spanish and has a grape base, breaking the boundaries of the traditional! It has fruity notes of raspberry – hence the perfect serve with them.
We tried their Dry Gin and the liquer strength flavoured ones, Elderflower, Rhubarb (seasonal and limited amounts made!) and I tried the sloe too!
Da Mhìle brought their Dry Gin – organic naturally! As well as their sea weed gin – very different!
I really like their spiced gin – it’s great for gin beginners and stands up to ginger ale if you don’t like tonic.
Meet you there next year?!
