We started this exploration with a bottle of William Chase's Great British Extra Dry Gin and what a great place to begin. Distilled in Herefordshire by the same man who gave us Tyrell's crisps this potato based gin is dry and full of flavour. We then moved onto to a couple of London Dry Gins — Bulldog Gin and the Oriental spiced Opihr, which both went down a treat with our clients.
We currently have a bottle of Edinburgh Gin in the salon, it's a zesty mouthful with bright citrus notes and lots of Juniper that tastes great with tonic, and its another one of our favourites. We like gin, if you hadn't noticed.
We love a G&T as much as the next person but they're ten a penny so we thought we'd share with you the recipe for one of our favourite cocktails:
Lemon Curd Sour
50ml Edinburgh Gin
3 teaspoons lemon curd
2 teaspoon orange blossom honey
1 egg white
Method: add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker, shake hard over ice and strain into your favourite glass. Garnish with a slice of orange.
We hope you love this cocktail as much as we do.
