Yes this is a whisky blog.
However I did warn that from time to time another tipple or two may make an appearance.
And I think we CAN make an exception for this gin – given that it is made at a malt distillery – Balmanech.
I’ve had the opportunity to sample it thrice in 2015:
- Once at a BMC member’s home in a highly convivial social evening
- Again as the ‘starter’ to sip before getting down to the serious business of a whisky master class with Stuart Harvey, Inver House Master Distiller
- A wildly popular ‘appetiser‘ for a Whisky Ladies evening with Karen Walker
In all cases, it was served with an apple and an equal portion of tonic to gin. Perfection!
Bright, light, highly refreshing. Delicate notes.
As Karen shared, the five points of the red star bring together the Caorunn gin elements – bog myrtle, rowan berry, heather, coul blush apple, dandelion.
Yet since then… only a whiff in Winnipeg’s liquor mart.
Til today! Thanks to my partner’s recent trip to London, our liquor cabinet is graced by our very own bottle.
As Mumbai’s 2nd summer comes upon us, temperatures rise, a chilled G&T or other assorted beverages seem just right! Oh happy days!
