I only really got into Gin well into my 30’s, it wasn’t something that I really liked when I was younger, and never got caught up with the Gin and Juice generation, however in the last 10 years, I’ve really started to enjoy it more and more.
The subtle hint of different botanical’s has really made me start to appreciate a good Gin, especially on a summers evening.
One of the products I was asked to try out this month, was 2 gin flavours form the English Drinks Co. The two flavours they produce are a Pink Gin and a Cucumber Gin
The first Gin that I was tempted to try, was the Pink Gin, this is distilled with a hint of Pomegranate and Cinchona Bark.
I mixed it with a Fever-tree Tonic water, I didn’t want to add in too many new flavours, and this is my usual go-to mixer.
The Pink Gin had a soft sweetness to it from the pomegranate, and I found it incredibly easy drinking. I can see myself drinking this on a regular basis and plan to try it in a few cocktails.
I then tried the Cucumber flavoured gin. I really didn’t think I would enjoy this one, and the first sip hit me with a cucumber taste. I wasn’t to sure, I took a second sip and that seemed more pleasant.. then another.. and another.
In truth, the more I drank, the more I liked it.. when I finished it.. I poured a second.
Well I wasn’t expecting that!!
Both these Gins were very welcomed, and are both Gins that I would drink again – which would depend on my mood and the situation.
