August Gin Discovery Boxes: Tasting Notes

A taste of the trio of gins which can be found in our August Discovery Box

Gin Ting

The tropical-paradise-in-a-bottle that is GinTing drifted into being in the summer of 2015, when husband and wife Kris and Louise Hindley decided they wanted to create a simple, fuss free gin that didn’t require any expensive additional ingredients.
On top of the traditional botanicals, this small batch gin is infused with passionfruit, mango and elderflower as well as a subtle hint of ‘ting’ – which is grapefruit in the Caribbean.

Tasting notes

A subtly sweet nose. Predominant passionfruit and mango notes on a backdrop of elderflower and a very light touch of grapefruit.

Known botanicals

Juniper berries, cassia bark, coriander, orange and lemon peel.

Perfect serve

Pour into a cold Copa glass over ice and mix with a Mediterranean tonic.

 

Glasgow Gin

Glasgow Gin has a personality all of its own. Fun and playful – echoing the famous Glaswegian sense of humour. It’s light, fresh and fruity offering a fun twist on the traditional. Made at the Langley Distillery in an antique still named Constance.

This is a quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit, made from 100% wheat and is redistilled using ten flavoursome botanicals, creating a gin of outstanding flavour and smoothness.

Tasting notes

Summer berry nose with a hint of mint and basil. Fruity, flowery palate and sherbet, berry, finish.

Known botanicals

Juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, lemon and orange peel, cassia bark, ground nutmeg, cinnamon bark, orris root, elderberries.

Perfect serve

Run a lime wedge around a tall, ice filled glass before squeezing in the juice. Top up with tonic.

Eenoo

This gin’s heart lies in the Scottish Highlands. The unique Royal Deeside honey which Eenoo is distilled with is made up of heather, willow herb and clover pollen – tastes which perfectly encapsulate the rugged Cairngorms landscape.

Brambleberries, raspberries and rosehip add to the gin’s traditional, yet fruity, flavour profile and water sourced from one of the purest springs in the world gives a clean touch. A breath of fresh air, bottled.

Tasting notes

Smooth and refreshing. Raspberries are evident and honey gives a sweet edge which is balanced by juniper and orange peel. Clean and fresh.

Known botanicals

Honey, coriander seeds, angelica root, liquorice root, orange and lemon peel.

Perfect serve

Add some tonic, fresh raspberries and a squeeze of lime for a real summer explosion.
