G&Tea Cocktail with Ginti Gin
From our resident mixologist, Jack at Scottish Mixology included in our Monthly Gin Club.⠀⠀⠀
A highball but with a wee twist on your typical g&t.
Ginti Gin is a Scottish gin distilled using Scottish tea leaves. Grown in Stirling in polytunnels (because you know we don't have the same climate as Sri Lanka or India), it has a clean and crisp taste as the tea leaves and juniper are combined with lemon peel, cubeb pepper, liquorice and angelica root. The tea tannins also lend a bit of bitterness and mouthfeel.
For this simple serve, we've added some blueberry liqueur, a bit of lemon (as per their recommended serve), and topped it up with a bit of green tea mixer but if you don't have that handy, a bit of peppermint tea and soda will add to the lovely freshness of the gin.
