WEXFORD STRAWBERRY GIN - BLACKWATER DISTILLERY
"The strawberries in this gin were grown just outside Enniscorthy in County Wexford, by Susan Kearns.
For maximum flavour not only do we distil the strawberries, but before bottling we add even more of them to our gin. This is where the berries lend their summery scent and colour to the Wexford Strawberry Distilled Gin."
NOSE: Juniper, citrus and coriander with sweet strawberry in the background.
PALATE: The juniper has a clean fruitiness combined with the fresh strawberry taste. There is a slightly floral element to this gin but this is counteracted by the spicy warmth of the roots.
FINISH: Medium and rather tasty. Juniper amateurs will like it.
PERFECT SERVE: Over ice, with tonic water, garnished with strawberries, basil and cracked Black Pepper.
