On the 10th Day of Christmas my true love gave to md

Beefeater Gin. It’s easy to overlook Beefeater gin, as it’s widely popular. But it’s a great gin and those that haven’t tried it yet is missing out. On the nose it’s spicy and fruity, and on the palate it’s dry with herbal and citrus notes

12 Gins to Christmas

Opihr Gin. This gin was designed with an exotic ancient spice route in mind. This gin has a heady spice mix with cardamom rising about the rest. Despite the spicy explosion there is a sweetness from the orange. Iv had it served different ways. Most common is with a slice of grapefruit. However I like it with a sliced red chili and some cardamom pods.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me …..

Elephant Gin. Distilled in Germany but with some fascinating African ingredients.

It’s different and unexpected. On the nose it’s dry earthy and sweet. On the palate Dry and a long finish. This would go very well in cocktails.

And no it’s not made from Elephants, just like baby oil is not made from babies. Lol

On the fourth day of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me……

First up is Hendricks Gin. I have always had this served with cucumber but while on holidays this year in Spain it was served with a rose petal as well. I really liked it. I also like it served with elderflower tonic.

How do you enjoy yours?
