Gordon's Sicilian Lemon Gin 70cl
This product is a crisp and refreshing drink that features strong and complex hints of juicy Sicilian lemons for a wonderful gin o’clock tipple!
For those looking for something a little different from their beverage, Gordon's Sicilian provides a fresh Mediterranean twist on an original recipe that delights the taste buds and freshens the palate.
This is a far more accessible drink than most, offering a smoother and sweeter beverage than you might expect when properly mixed in a typical G&T – perfect for long, hot summer evenings.
Let’s take a closer look at the taste, discuss what goes with it and find out more about how this special beverage is made.
How does it taste?
This is a drink designed to whisk your taste buds away to the shores of sunny Sicily, with a clean and sophisticated flavoured gin that offers something you wouldn’t normally expect to get in a gin and tonic.
Gordon's Sicilian Lemon Gin has been carefully blended and distilled to provide an excellent balance of freshness and sweetness – rounding out the bitter sourness of the recipe’s fresh lemons with the depth of warmer, peppery juniper berry notes.
The drink is made from 100% natural flavours to ensure the clean, crisp taste that has become expected from a Gordon’s product and will provide gin drinkers with an exciting alternative to other flavoured and non-flavoured beverages.
What should I mix it with?
It isn't always easy to decide what to mix with lemon gin. The gin itself has a more distinct and nuanced flavour than your traditional London Dry variants and so you need to be careful to pick mixers and garnishes that won’t drown it out.
Mediterranean flavoured tonics can enhance the freshness but regular tonic will work just as well. Though you might want to stay away from mixers with stronger flavours as they can mask or overpower the delicate lemon freshness.
For a garnish, fresh lemon or just the peel is a great option – it will draw out the zesty notes and complement the Sicilian flavours. Fresh ginger can also provide a more fiery counterpoint to the sweet and sour notes of lemon, and will make a really refreshing combination with tonic.
As usual, ice is a must – particularly if you truly want to transport your senses into the hot Sicilian sunshine, as Gordon's hope you will!
How is it made?
Featuring all natural flavours and botanicals, Gordon's Sicilian Lemon Gin is crafted by adding a carefully infused fresh lemon flavour to the dry base of the drink, which is enhanced with additional botanical notes for a well-rounded drink.
This innovative mix gives an exciting and zesty twist on a Gordon’s recipe that has been refined and perfected over many years and was initially created by Alexander Gordon himself.
When life gives you lemons, why not slice them up to garnish your fresh and feisty lemon gin and tonic, made with Gordon's Sicilian masterpiece?
