We've created an astoundingly decadent tipple with Strawberry & Balsamico Gin. A classic gin base acts as a canvas for the addition of fresh strawberries, strawberry and black pepper distillates and the very finest balsamic vinegar money can buy - Aceto di Balsamico tradizionale di Modena DOP, aged between 12 and 25 years in casks made from chestnut, cherry, oak, mulberry, ash and juniper (of course). So yeah, we HAD to find a way to use it in a gin. Ta-da!
Nose: Dark red fruits - cherry, strawberry and cranberry - mixed with the rich and mysterious darkness of the balsamic, creating a rich chocolate-treacle note.
Taste: A delightful balance between the plump, juicy strawberries and the complexity of the balsamic, which provides some woodiness and a touch of refined bitterness, but minimal acidity.
Finish: Cinder toffee and the lasting sweetness of strawberry. When it comes to flavours, you really do get two for the price of one with this gin!
Perfect Serve: Cream Soda.
