Amblesdie Distillers – Big Dry Gin
Big, dry and peppery. Big Dry has notes of rosemary thyme, kaffir lime and sage, but what sets this gin apart is the jalapeno we use to give it that extra kick. The intense and robust flavours complement the dry taste of the juniper berries. On the palate: Juniper, pine, pimento, mace. Oil content creates good mouth feel, warm at the back of the palate from the jalapeno.
Matt Dickson (head distiller) suggests serving it in their Hot Off the Press Cocktail:
50ml Big Dry Gin
20ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
15ml honey syrup
a fresh jalapeno
Add all ingredients to a shaker, fill with ice, shake then double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist OR some fresh jalapeno and enjoy.
