This gin is inspired by flavours from the Mediterranean: infused with olives, rosemary, basil, thyme and cardamom with overriding citrus notes and hints of juniper. It is the gin that the Distillers at Hope on Hopkins, Leigh and Lucy, always dreamt of making: unusual and savoury.
If you love olives, serve it “dirty” in a gin and tonic with a green olive and a dash of brine, or else serve in a gin and tonic with a slice of orange, sprig of basil or an olive and rosemary.
It’s also delicious in classic cocktails: perfect for a dirty martini, and great in a negroni.
11 botanicals including juniper, angelica root, coriander seed, orange peel, fresh rosemary, basil and thyme, cardamom and bay leaves.
