I LOVE gin, it is my typical go-to light cocktail spirit. Some say you are either a gin drinker or a vodka drinker and I say there really is no comparison. What I love about gin is that each distiller creates a beverage that is incredibly unique with a very distinct flavour profiles. Gin is elegant and subtle, just like a beautiful perfume. An interesting fact I learned about gin from Beefeater’s Master Distiller Desmond Payne during our lunch and learn hosted by the Deck Agency was one of the signature elements of gin is orris root which is also a key ingredient in the beloved Chanel perfumes.
Beefeater London Gin had debuted their Beefeater Pink a strawberry flavoured gin this month that is now available in limited quantity but is certainly worth seeking out to add to your collection. With botanical tasting notes of juniper, angelica root, lemon peel and coriander, this flavourful spirit adds a hint of strawberry less the sweetness. Beefeater Pink is the latest of flavoured gins to hit the market. We are excited about the blood orange flavour promised to come soon.
Here are some delicious cocktails you can make at home when trying out Beefeater Pink!
