Aromas of apple, a little elderberry, mineral, some blackcurrant and riesling perfume. Dry taste, clear minerality, apple and citrus, high acidity, and an aftertaste dominated by minerality. Relatively young
Served chilled on its own, this Quince Gin is an ideal replacement for desert wines, especially if paired with apple crumble alongside a cheese board (Manchego especially). Because it is not technically a Gin (it’s not over 37.5% ABV) expect to see some name changes to comply with regulation, but whatever the final name written on the bottle is – seek this out, it is well worth it! Ridiculous and delicious.
This eye catching medicine bottle is produced from the use of no less than 47 botanicals from the Black Forest in Germany. The taste is most remarkable, complex and very satisfying. The inclusion of cranberries works a treat. . A great success since its launch 2 years ago. 47%!
Founded in the 1840's, Jever typifies the very dry style of pilsener from Friesland in the north-west corner of Germany and this remarkable beer is lagered for an impressive 90 days. Although only a small brewery, the 'Friesische Brauhaus zu Jever' has become a top brewery in Germany producing this extra dry pilsener. It's also one of the most bitter, hoppy lagers in the Germany, as indicated by 'herb' on the label. Because the Friesland water is very soft, Jever can add more hops when brewing to create the rather different taste.
