I was immediately excited to try this gin upon seeing it, largely because Ampersand's exquisite strawberry gin is one of my favourites in its class, even out of all the strawberry gins I've ever tried. I was certainly hoping for this one to be just as wondrous, and sadly it didn't manage to be as good. It was, in my humble opinion, better.
But anyway, for all the folks who weren't here last time: Ampersand's Blueberry gin comes in a fantastically designed frosted glass bottle. To touch it and to look at it gives the impression that it's a product of quality (it isn't as though first impressions are exactly wrong here, to be honest) and the bluish colour of the gin is beautifully diffused by the glass itself. The Ampersand logo is beautifully embossed on the front, standing tall and proud to let you know exactly who made this gin.
And of course, all the bells and whistles used to make this gin a tantalising experience before it even touches your palate? They're justified. Entirely so. I combined mine with a little lemonade and some ice, but you're free to experience yours however you wish. Although I can certainly vouch for my concoction - delicate senses of blueberry harmonise with light and refreshing floral notes to create a mind-bogglingly delicious flavour. There's hints of acidity, which serve to both balance out and complement the ridiculously refreshing sensation this gin will lead you through. I'm lucky that, just like with the strawberry gin, I had more than enough in the bottle to leave me happy and content.
Overall, if you've never tried a blueberry gin or even a fruity gin before, you really cannot go wrong with this one. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it to you, as well as to anybody versed in such gins - if you haven't tried this, you're really missing out.
