No self respecting Gin business could re-launch without stating it’s own take on the classic Gin and Tonic. In our humble opinion, we like to make the classic G&T a celebration of Gin…strong, minimal fuss but solid basics.
Garnishes and other flavours are an absolute joy, but sometimes you need a paired back tipple to taste the subtleties in your quality spirit.
The best quality Gin you can lay your hands on
Premium tonic, nothing too sweet or flavoured (after all, Gin is the hero here)
2 Large ice cubes or Gin Stones to reduce dilution
Unwaxed lemon peel
Quite simply add your ice cubes and lemon peel to a ready chilled highball glass. Pour 50ml of your Gin over the ice, add tonic to taste (we start with a 1:1 ratio and adjust from there), finally stir until combined.
I prefer my ratios a little closer to 1:2. How do you like yours? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
