Winner of the hugely prestigious The Whisky Exchange Spirit of the Year 2017.
Organic blood orange, flowers, spice, berries, pine, drying resins and sweetness fill the mouth. Rich and unbelievably complex, it transcends expectations of a gin.
The Garden Swift Gin and Tonic (or as we refer to it a GT&T). A nod to the past and a drink that reaches perhaps the peak of refreshing libations. It is also a drink that brings with it a huge amount of opportunities to customise it to your taste; dry vs. herbal vs. sweet tonics, ratio of spirit to mixer, and of course garnish.
Adorned with almond hints of wild May blossom, peppery and flamboyant nasturtium flowers from the garden, cooling cucumber notes or more simply the clean flavours of lime or lemon. Watch our Facebook page for more suggestions. However, as our default GT&T we recommend:
- 50 ml Garden Swift dry gin
- 125 ml neutral tonic (a ratio of 2-3 times the amount of tonic to gin is an ideal). Our choice of tonic reflects that Garden Tiger gin is a complex showcase within itself
- A slice of orange (organic blood orange in their Winter season), bringing a hint of sweetness
Add large amounts of ice to a large wine glass, add Garden Tiger gin, orange slice and top with tonic. Marvel as the essential oils mist around the ice.
