Hot tip!! The Clovendoe team suggest a ginger beer pairing with their Seed Zero spirit. To see if they are right, I’ve poured myself 2 drinks, one with Strangelove Hot Ginger Beer, the other with tonic, just to compare the experience.
The tasting notes mention lavender, rosemary, lemon thyme, lemon myrtle, orange and lemon peel. All very aromatic and I am guessing the ginger beer is used to bring in the warmth.
With tonic, the Clovendoe Seed is nice but it is not lighting my world on fire. None of those botanicals are really jumping around my mouth. But gosh gosh, that ginger beer really does the trick. You get the full blown flavours from the rosemary & lavender and the bitters and acid from all of the citrus elements. This is HERBACIOUS! Definitely one if you like it bitter.
To be honest, I was sceptical that the mixer could make such a difference but by golly it does! The ginger really pulls it all together into a symphony of flavours. So there in lies a final lesson for Gin week. Don’t be afraid to play around with flavours. Hit up the producers, see what they suggest as a best pairing!
Can’t wait to try the rest of the Clovendoe range!
