Looks like we are in for some pleasant weather this Easter weekend, perfect gin & tonic weather if you ask me! Good thing we have some fantastic new gins on our shelves this weekend. There are exciting new releases, just hitting the shelves this week, from two of our favourite English brands, Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray. Of course, we also have some great new Irish additions to our line-up. Let’s have a look…
First up a new limited release from one of Britain’s best-known brands, their first ever limited edition. Made with a total of 13 botanicals with the familiar bright and citrus notes of Bombay Sapphire, infused with: pennyroyal mint, rosehip and toasted hazelnut. Ideally served with squeezed lemon juice and tonic or why not try it with ginger ale.
This new release is the perfect gin to soak up some sun with. Tanqueray Sevilla takes the classic Tanqueray botanicals and adding Sevilla orange essences for a zesty Mediterranean twist. Zesty and delicate orange blossom with bittersweet elements balanced the spicy complexity of Tanqueray, what could be better. Best served with a premium tonic and a wedge of orange.
Next up some delicious, home grown, gins. Drioglann Loch Measc (Lough Mask Distillery) is a relatively new craft distillery on the shore of Lough Mask, Co. Mayo. Their gin is distilled in a classic London dry style, a punchy juniper led gin balanced with locally foraged botanicals such as honeysuckle and fuchsia. This is perfect served with a lime wedge to compliment the spicier elements of the spirit.
This delicious gin is also available in our gin sale at €42.00 reduced from €47.00.
Another great new Irish distillery (and another Lough). This time it’s the Lough Ree Distillery with Sling Shot gin. This gin takes the classic spicy elements adding zesty fruit (orange, lemon and lime) and fresh mint. The final unique element is local peat. The result is delicious blend of zesty citrus, menthol and spice with a light touch, but unmistakeably earthy, peat element.
You can pick this up in our gin sale for €40.00 reduced from €45.00
