The flagship product, Bullards Norwich Dry Gin is a gin of distinction, but it wasn’t long until the co-founders Craig and Peter decided to get out the recipe book again and conjured up a Strawberry and Black Pepper gin where the strawberries are included in the distillation of course, but also infused in the spirit along with black pepper notes to balance it all out.
I must confess I was slightly sceptical at the idea of Strawberry and Black Pepper in a gin but after I took my first sip, with a slimline (I'm on a diet) Indian Tonic and a couple of basil leaves for freshness I'm delighted to report that this is one of those rare exceptions in which a gin’s herbal heart remains true. It’s not a silly, fruity and frivolous tipple made for the sake of it, instead it’s an honest-to-goodness gin that doesn’t taste artificial in anyway.
It has a surprising sweetness that stayed with me to the finish with strawberries dominating the palette with hints of banana for a big tropical leafiness that perfectly compliments the peppery juniper. Just bloody lovely, a true classic in my opinion. Well done Bullards.
