Tasting Notes: Bright, Floral, Grapefruit

Perfect Pour: Heather Gin packs a powerful punch when it comes to its flavour profile. With a strong floral and citrus taste, we think it is best enjoyed while sipping neat or when paired with a light tonic and a garnish of strawberries and pink peppercorns, which respectively add a boost of sugar and spice.

Distiller Simon says: “With the Heather Gin, my goal was to make a pink gin that wasn’t a sweet pink gin. I wanted it to blend well with typically sweeter mixers such as lemonade, but not be overpowered by the flavour of those mixers. What we have is a beautiful gin that certainly has a distinctly fruity flavour, and is smooth enough to be sipped neat but punchy enough to not be overwhelmed when added to a cocktail or mixed drink. It pairs perfectly with lemonade, but it also brings a new complexity when included in something with stronger tasting elements, like an aperol spritz.
