Poetic License - The Rarities No.7 Tutti Frutti GinIce Cream Flavour
Distilled with hand-peeled, -chopped and -puréed fresh fruit – this gin is pretty much a distilled fruit smoothie.
It has a vibrant nose of tropical mixed fruit with more mellow stone and berry fruits in the background.
Sweet pineapple arrives immediately on tasting, followed by a tang from juniper and mixed fruits intermingling; vibrant kiwi and peach followed by subtler cherries and berries, then plum and apple. Leaves lingering, slightly piney juniper and a delightful fruitiness on the palate.
Although fruity and a little sweet, there is no sugar added so it does not become the sickly sweet you know from tutti frutti candies - though, equally, it is not dissimilar. This gin is an ode to the traditional Italian ice cream flavour; a fruity treat perfect for summer.
Serve with premium Indian tonic water with a slice of kiwi.
