Edinburgh Gin has introduced a new flavour with a twist into their range – Orange & Basil Gin. The distillers say the fresh, fruity gin makes for a great G&T as well as a good base for a cocktail.
The combo allows for the sweetness from the Valencian orange to blend with the subtle herbal, basil. Edinburgh Gin used both fresh and dried Valencian orange peel resulting in fresh crisp citrus notes that is delicately balanced with subtle sweetness. The fresh basil is vapour infused giving the gin a refined aroma and deliciously smooth and aromatic taste. It truly is a springtime sensation.
David Wilkinson, Head Distiller at Edinburgh Gin, said: “We are constantly inspired by the world around us and exploring what is next in the world of Full-Strength Flavoured Gins.
“Our Orange & Basil Gin combines two popular flavours that are not usually seen together in gin. A combination of fresh and dried orange peels adds a sweet citrus flavour which plays nicely off the juniper. The basil gives a warm, herbal aroma and adds a savoury depth to the gin’s aftertaste.”
The new gin can be enjoyed in a simple G&T, but it also lends itself to cocktails such as a twist on a Gin Fizz…
