Wimbledon, strawberries & cream, a jug of pimms, croquet on the lawn and a nice long G&T ahh – these are the makings of a British summer (along with rain and the umbrellas of course), unless that is you switch from a classic ice n’ slice to a sprig of rosemary and an orange peel twist! Enter Gin Mare, a super-premium handcrafted Gin from Barcelona and the latest tipple causing a stir on our capitals roof top bars.
Unlike it’s predecessors this well dressed number is designed to evoke the flavours, sights and sounds of the Mediterranean. Juniper berries are distilled in a florentine copper pot along with arbequina olives from Spain, thyme from Greece, tomato & basil from Italy before finally organic rosemary fresh from Turkey. With it’s distinctive wave shaped bottle it’s the ideal gift for any Gin Lover seeking a modern take on an old classic. Lussorian tried it on one of those rare balmy english evenings and for an hour or two, under the influence of a double ‘Mare’, left the stresses and strains of city life behind, imagining ourselves instead sipping at our aromatic cocktail hidden within a shady olive grove.
For just less than forty pounds a litre Gin Mare is the perfect luxury tonic to any post holiday blues, buy it a Waitrose, Harvey Nicholas and John Lewis this summer, also available from London’s best drinking dens so ask at the bar. Chin chin all!
