The Edinburgh Gin Distillery is responsible for some of the best tasting gins to ever make it to my palate - and I can tell you, this time around is no exception. Unlike most of the gins they offer, which tend to be more modest, calming affairs, this raspberry gin immediately sets itself apart with a blood-red appearance, which takes center stage through the exquisitely designed bottle - the groove detail on the bottom is such a nice addition, it certainly makes the bottle feel like a luxury item. It's distilled with five traditional botanicals, and of course uses fresh Scottish raspberries - although I was interested to find out that they also use the raspberry leaves in the process. Never really thought about eating the leaves before but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, they probably know what they're doing more than I do.
Uncorking reveals the fresh scent of - can you guess what? That's right, raspberries! Who would've thought? To be honest, it was so fruity and refreshing I felt as though I was going to get drunk on the scent alone. Moving swiftly on so that doesn't happen, I combined mine with a little tonic and some freeze dried raspberries - recommended by Edinburgh Gin, of course. Who are we to disagree with the fine people who actually make it? Anyway, the flavour of this gin is incredibly deep, with sweet and gentle notes of citrus combined with a strong raspberry tang. I actually tried this in conjunction with a raspberry on its own, and decided the two were almost identical. This gin perfectly captures the tart yet sweet flavour we all know and love raspberries for. It's truly a quality gin.
In short, if you're looking for something sweet to brighten your day, or you want to give the perfect gift to a colleague or friend, or you just really, really like raspberries, you truly can't go wrong with this top tipple from the Edinburgh Gin Distillery.
