I asked the lovely people at Foxdenton Estate to send me one of their many flavoured gins. I was intrigued and curious so when they kindly said yes, I was overjoyed!
I was sent the Rhubarb flavour.
Here is an overview straight from the website;
Compounded the old fashioned way – the way you probably make Sloe Gin at home- by steeping diced rhubarb in London Dry Gin. We added sugar at the end of the process as I wanted to keep the tartness and sweetness nicely balance. We are still trying out different mixes but so far I have consumed rather a lot neat. It is such a summery flavour.
I drank this both neat with some ice and with a tonic, and I was glad to taste the rhubarb straight away in both. I didn’t have to wait for the taste to kick in, neither did I struggle to find hints. It was a very strong but not too overwhelming.
I think that this gin is well made by a great family distillery and though the gin and tonic was nice, I preferred the taste of the straight Rhubarb drink.
Why mix something in to an already great taste?
I’m excited to try the other flavours one day!
I give this gin a 4 out of 5 stars.
