Getting the measure of... Ginti Gin
Posted by Matt Looker, 17 Feb 2020 |
Ginti Gin were kind enough to send me a bottle of theirs recently, and I have been enjoying mixing with it ever since. Aside from the super-stylish bottle (I’m a big fan of a funkily waxed cork top), it has an intriguing key botanical of Scottish tea, which gives the gin a really unique, crisp and clean flavour.
So let's do a quick tour of a few drinks I made using this great new gin in my life. Obviously, the first one was a no-brainer...
G and Ti
2oz Ginti Gin
4oz Fever Tree Tonic Water
Apple and Bramble Ti bag
Method: Pour, infuse and serve in a teacup, because of course.
Handily, the folks at Ginti Gin also sent me a couple of their Apple and Bramble infusion Ti bags, which are for steeping in your G&T. You simply leave the bag in for three mins to allow the cold infusion to happen, and then you are left with a deliciously fruity gin and tonic mix.
2.5oz Ginti Gin
1/4oz Lime Juice
1/4oz Elderflower Syrup
Method: Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
I've been really enjoying classic Gimlets recently, and have been meaning to play around with the formula. This seemed like a good time to come up with something new. The honey is a good fit for Ginti, and the elderflower complements the floral notes of the gin really nicely.
1 2/3oz Ginti Gin
1/2oz Passion Fruit Liqueur
1/2oz Lemon Juice
1tsp Passion Fruit Curd
Method: Stir the Passion Fruit Curd with the gin until it dissolves. Then add the other ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with toast.
Here's a twist on a breakfast martini that I thought of after realising that I had some leftover Passion Fruit Curd from Fortnum & Mason still in the fridge hoping to be used. It seemed like a good fit for Ginti, providing a richer, luxurious taste for this breakfast and tea mix.
