I first saw this aptly named novel Gin on Dragon's Den and thought, here we go, not another gin wannabe, although the greedy Dragons loved the idea they wanted too much equity, as they tend to do, so these plucky Newcastle based Germans (now there is a combination you don't here too often) crowd funded and got a hefty £350,000 investment taking the beverage sector by storm as the first to cold-brew and infuse tea with gin capturing both the British Tea loving culture and gin trend with a bold and intriguing twist.
I couldn't wait to try it out, at first I wondered how to drink it, either neat over ice or hot, it is recommended both ways, so always on the look out for something new, I went for the hot option and microwaved it in a mug (sorry, didn't have any porcelain cups to hand) and added a garnish of orange.
With its clear amber tone and pleasant aromas of black tea, bergamot oil and honey it tasted and looked exactly like Earl Grey Tea but with a sublime gin infusion that overwhelmed my senses making me unsure if I should be enjoying it or not, but I was, it went down incredibly smoothly and I'm sure would cater for tea and gin lovers alike. Well done guys, I think, if you listen hard enough you can hear a dragon kicking themselves.
