Whilst meandering around @junipalooza
with my fellow gin friend @gin_philosopher
possibly quaffing superb gin samples, he spotted @cuckoogin
from the other side of the room! Could not stop talking about their Sunshine Gin. I of course had to make it my mission to get to taste it.
I am not a huge fan of honey as a botanical however saying that there is another gin I own that does have it and I do like that one. I think it really comes down to managing the level of sweetness that honey brings to a gin.
Well I must give my friend kudos because this one is a stellar gin! I was so disappointed they had run out of bottles but @brindledistillery
kindly gifted me a miniature of their Sunshine to take home.
The botanicals include juniper, lemon, almonds, vanilla, angelica, orris, cinnamon, raspberries and orange. The almonds and vanilla bring a creaminess to the gin with sweet and nutty notes. The sweetness of the honey is balanced just right. There is a burst raspberries and citrus freshness that is quite simply just delicious.
I have served my G&T with a premium tonic garnished with a lemon curl, raspberries and thyme as per their recommended serve. I can not recommend this gin enough, really such a pleasure to drink.
Head over to my gin friend @gin_philosopher
for a delicious cocktail serve with Cuckoo Sunshine.
