Various methods and recipes were tried before they found the right balance of 11 botanicals, the most interesting of these being blueberries, blackberries and almonds. The botanicals are steeped in pure grain spirit to release their flavours. Then the spirit is distilled in a 100 year old traditional copper still.
Fox’s tasting Notes
Like taking a walk along hedge rows on a warm summer evening, the dropping sun gives a subtle heat and fills the air with sweet, fruity aromas.
Brockmans' Tasting Notes
Nose: Fruity and floral
Palate: Citrus, fruity, woody and sweat.
Finish: Silky smooth with a rich fruity aromas
Average Price: £31.49
The price is at the higher end of the spectrum, but not the highest I’ve seen; it seems that around the £30 mark seems to be average for craft gin these days.
This is certainly a great tasting gin for those who like things on the fruitier end of the spectrum (and even those who don’t). The taste of this gin would perhaps get a bit lost in cocktails where it would be paired with other strong flavoured ingredients, but mixed with anything that lets it’s natural unique taste shine through and it’s great. Brockman’s themselves suggest to pair it with a goofd tonic and add a twist of pink grapefruit peel and 2 blueberries. Certainly Brockman’s has quickly moved to the top of my list for preferred gin and tonic.
