Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic :- 'Absolutely superb' with this UNIQUE Whey Spirit London Gin. www.Summer Fruit Cup.com

The natural botanicals selected, are steeped in the spirit for at least 24 hours, contributing to a very soft release of the spirit on the palette, and no trace of 'after burn' normally associated with gin. The botanicals, listed in alphabetical order are:- Organic Coriander Seeds, Organic Elderflower, Organic Juniper Berries, & Liquorice Powder.

Charles Maxwell, Master Distiller, London Dry Gin, London, England

Nose: Strong juniper overlaid with elderflower notes.

Taste: Juniper balanced by delicate elderflower and hints of spice. Very dry palate but a delightful soft spirit. Given the strength and composition, this Gin would also be very appreciated as a cocktail base, given the subtleness of the Elderflower flavouring.

Finish: Long, soft, dry and clean.

I bought this for my Sister as she liked Gin & I must say she finds this much more refined than your supermarket usual brands, drinking it with slimline tonic but without the lemon. Having bought her the Heather Gin in this range then the Elderflower & back again she prefers the Heather as it has a more classic flavour. All in all she still thinks this is of the same high quality & nice if you want a little change once in a while & you know what they say, a change is as good as a rest.
