The good thing about G&T is its ability to create an impression of summer. Even when the rains take on a biblical nature a large G&T soon has you filled with sunny thoughts. Always on the lookout for a new gin tasting experience I stumbled upon the finest yet. Geranium Gin is an artisan gin with, as its name suggests, geranium as one of its floral notes. A beautifully balanced gin with a good level of juniper and an accent of geranium that doesn’t dominate or distract from the purity of a G&T but leaves the slightest taste on the tongue of something quite special.
Produced in England as you hope a good gin to be and best served with a half-decent tonic. Slice of lime and ice are of course all part of the G&T package.
In defiance of the wet weather I suggest mixing a large one and putting on your sunglasses and sunhat.
Sky dove grey. Rain steady. Temp 15c.
Time for a Geranium G&T.
