Saturday tasting – Gin o’Clock at Ann et Vin

May 11th, 2017

Saturday tasting - gins - 12pm-3pm

This week it's Gin o'Clock at Ann et Vin in Newark. Join us as we taste some fabulous gins, all guaranteed to delight your tastebuds!
 
Amongst other gins, on offer (until they're all gone!) will be:
 
BURLEIGHS SIGNATURE LONDON DRY GIN – 40% ABVBurleigh's Signature London Dry Gin 40% - this Signature London Dry Gin is distilled with 11 of the world’s finest botanicals including silver birch, dandelion, burdock and elderberries. Incredibly smooth and balanced, it is perfect for a classic gin and tonic with a twist of orange zest or a wedge of freshly cut grapefruit.
 
Burleigh's Export Strength Gin 47% - this gin is expertly distilled to the same botanical recipe as the Signature Gin. Bottling at a higher ABV creates an expression of the recipe with a markedly different profile, perfectly suited to a Martini or Negroni cocktail, or a more robust and aromatic gin and tonic.
 
Burleigh's Distillers Cut Gin 47% - this is an exceptionally crisp and fresh gin. Using the same 11 botanicals as our Signature Gin in a different ratio, this gin shows a higher proportion of softer, sweeter, more floral ingredients making it perfectly suited to cocktails such as the Martinez and the Tom Collins.
