Steeplechase Best Mate Pink Gin
They Say: Distilled furlongs from the Home of Jump Racing, this single-run, small-batch, naturally sweetened pink gin encompasses the spirit of the 'show off' Best Mate. The nation's favourite horse never finished outside the top two in any race on his way to three Gold Cups. This gin has a flair befitting his style of racing. Combining raspberries, hibiscus and redcurrants with a traditional dry gin base, this modern take on pink gin is juniper forward, with the freshness of red fruits and a hint of spice.
Simon Says: What a delightful Pink Gin! As a Navy man, I have a traditional take on a pink gin - proper gin and a splash of Angostura Bitters, not the often confected, fruity take that so many have developed over the years. However... in his efforts to make a thoroughly tasty (and ever so slightly 'Instagrammable' pink gin), Adam has used a selection of red fruits which lend only a hint of natural sweetness, whilst each bringing a fresh, racy, tartness that tantalise the tastebuds. By several furlongs this is definitely my favourite fruit-based pink gin! Distilled in the Cotswolds, its a great addition to our local collection.
