The Rosemary Grapefruit Gin Cocktail (*)

Ableforth’s Bathtub gin is a high quality copper pot-still spirit infused with 6 botanicals; juniper, coriander, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. The gin is developed using a method called ‘cold compounding’ in which the botanicals are infused in a base spirit in a copper pot still before being filtered out. This gives the gin it’s subtle bronze tint before being hand wrapped, strung and waxed.

Initially the juniper-rich gin has a smooth, earthy taste to start but finishes fresh and warm on the palette with the notes from the spiced botanicals creeping in.

Its overall taste is bold and can be carried strongly through other ingredients. Therefor when creating a cocktail I wanted something that would pair well with the gin.
