Looking for a classic G&T?
Manchester’s Raspberry Gin is made with the finest raspberries to give a beautiful aroma and an unmistakable pink appearance and is best matched with Fever Tree Light Tonic so that it doesn’t mask any of the delicious flavours in the gin.
Whitley Neill Quince Gin is perfect for those summer days. Peachy soft tastes combine with the tang of citrus for a gin that’s juicy and all too tempting in a G&T so pair this with Fentimans Natural Tonic and enjoy whilst sitting in the sunshine.
Gin with a twist?
If you want something a bit more unusual than the usual kick of juniper in gin, then McQueen’s Chocolate Orange Gin is the perfect answer. You can pair this with Fever Tree’s Indian Tonic Water to experience the full taste of this unique drink.
If you are looking for a gin with a twist Makar Oak Aged Gin meets that! This gin spends 10 years ageing in European Oak casks, adding a delicious smoky depth to the peppery juniper flavour for a smooth and rich taste. This is best served with ginger ale and ice.
Historically, Navy strength gins were required to burn a clear flame and that was proof the alcohol content was sufficient meaning the ABV is supplied at the strength of 57.5% compared to ABV of regular gin sitting at around 47.5%. Slingsby Navy has an ABV of 57.1%, Fever Tree’s Mediterranean Tonic matches the strength of the gin bringing out the flavours for you to appreciate.
Kokoro is a British Gin with a Japanese heart, distilled with eight botanicals and fresh Sansho berries that have a black pepper flavour so you don’t want to disguise any of the flavours with an overpowering tonic, Fever Tree’s premium light tonic is a great choice for this one.
