Sip away the season with a special gin we recently discovered and used to make a delicious cranberry and tonic.
We recently tried a gin that is unlike any other gin we have had the pleasure of sipping. It is seriously smooth and we enjoyed simply sipping it on the rocks. Enter, Brockmans Gin. On the nose, this gin has the typical juniper aromas, but it also has more berry and fruit notes than other gins. Its taste is just as refined and exquisite with a flavor profile complete with berries and coriander. If you wouldn’t describe yourself as a huge gin fan, we suggest you try this one. It’s so well balanced it may make you change your mind about gin.
Playing off of the fruit elements of this gin, we create a simple cranberry and tonic. It’s perfect for the winter, but come summer, we can’t wait to swap out the cranberries for raspberries or blueberries.
Disclosure: We were not compensated to write this post, but we did receive free Brockmans product in order to create this cocktail.
