Summer has officially begun! There’s no better way to enjoy the summer months than enjoying a glass of G&T whilst taking in those stunning views. That’s why we’ve introduced a whole new gin menu to The Deck House bar for you to try; of course you’ll need to find your very own favourite but here’s a little information about each one.
We, of course, have the classics such as Gordon’s, Bombay Sapphire, Hendrick’s and Plymouth Original. If you want to branch out a bit but still want that classic taste we have a range of London dry gins; including Bloom, Bulldog, Opihr and 6 O’clock Gin.
London Dry Gin
For a smoother, sweet flavour Bloom gin and 6 O’clock Gin are perfect. Bloom consists of three different flavours; chamomile, honeysuckle and the citrus fruit pomelo. Drink it with an Indian tonic water and fresh strawberries. 6 O’clock Gin has a fine balance of botanicals, including coriander, orange peel and elderflower, giving a balanced but smooth flavour. Drink with tonic water and garnish with lemon, lemon zest or lime.
Bulldog is a multi-award winning gin that has been handcrafted in an English distillery for over 250 years. Its dry flavours give a crisp finish and it is best served with a premium Indian tonic along with fresh ground black pepper.
Or if you’re looking for something with more exotic flavours, Ophir has a wide range of flavours. This includes spicy Cubeb berries from Indonesia, black pepper from India and coriander from Morocco. It has been distilled to a high quality since 1761 and is best served with Indian tonic water garnished with lime, black pepper or cardamom.
Something a Bit Different
Want something a bit different to the London Dry?
From London we have Edgerton Blue Spice, a follow on from the popular Edgerton original pink gin. This has an earthy flavour consisting of 17 botanicals and coriander notes. Serve with Fever Tree Indian tonic water and garnish with fresh blueberries.
Or why not get a taste of the Brecon Beacons with Brecon, a traditional gin laced with hints of spicy cinnamon and coriander. The characteristic flavours go well with tonic, ice and lemon or lime zest.
Head up to the north of Scotland for Rock Rose, a handcrafted Scottish gin which gets its flavours from local and traditional botanicals. Drink with Fever Tree Indian tonic water and finish off with orange zest.
Take a trip overseas with the Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, consisting of 47 handpicked ingredients sourced from the Black Forest. Serve with tonic water and garnish with blackberries, a wedge of lime, a slice of orange or orange zest.
If you fancy something more flavoursome then one of these flavoured gins could be perfect for you.
The Edgerton Original Pink gin is made from 15 exotic ingredients, including pomegranate. A delightful and complex gin, perfectly served with Fever Tree Indian tonic water and garnished with a strawberry.
Want a drink that tastes like an English summer? The Cucumber Gin has a clean aroma and taste of fresh cucumber along with a delicate taste of coriander, citrus and cracked pepper. Drink it neat or with Fever Tree tonic water and finish off with fresh mint leaves.
If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary then we would recommend the Marshmallow Gin with Madagascan Vanilla; a premium gin with an infused flavour produced using copper pot stills. Serve over ice for a refreshing and cool taste.
