Fruit gins were once all the rage: lemon gin, orange gin, even asparagus gin once graced the shelves of liquor stores the world over. Now, they’re back with The Boutique-y Gin Company Cherry Gin. We’ve taken a Classic Gin and added a combination of sweet and sour marasca cherries, as well as a good pinch of spice. A fun and fruity gin, this is delicious as a sipper, but eminently mixable, too; try it with a splash of cola and a wedge of lime for a taste sensation.
Nose: Plump and juicy - homemade cherry pie with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
Taste: The succulent fruity sweetness of cherry, a touch of spice, and a slight citrus tang.
Finish: The lingering tartness of sour cherries, accompanied by the juniper berry, which makes an encore appearance.
