The continuing gin craze means more and more of us are getting creative with our G&Ts. Nowadays, thanks to everyone’s increased interest in the tipple, we’re becoming more vested in exploring quirky and unusual flavours, so here at Arbutus at The Crannagh, we have put together our favourite list of G&T’s.
Tanqueray no. 10
Tanqueray no. 10 is first distilled using fresh oranges, limes and grapefruit, then coriander, angelica, liquorice, chamomile flowers and more limes are added. The very citrusy flavours pair well with Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water and a large grapefruit peel.
Bombay Sapphire combines ten exotic botanicals to create a light, fresh and delicate flavours. The Mediterranean lemon peel botanical means it pairs perfectly with Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water. Garnish with thin lemon peel.
Hendricks has floral notes from the addition of Bulgarian rose petals and a fresh finish from a cucumber infusion. Hendrick's fans will know that a slice of cucumber is the ideal garnish, and we like it paired with Schweppes Tonic Water.
Due to the soft water, it’s made with, Plymouth Gin is a bit sweeter than classic London dry gins. It has deep earthy notes and a citrusy punch. Mixologists say that Plymouth Gin works really well in Dry Martinis, and we think the sweetness would pair well with Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic Water, or a less sweet Fever-Tree Naturally Light Tonic Water.
Martin Miller's has a perfect balance of juniper and citrus meaning it is pretty versatile. We like it with the Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic Water as it brings out the floral notes in the gin. Garnish with pink grapefruit or even strawberry!
