The Only Exception
History Behind The Gin
Released in Feb 2020, this gin was made to show you how a Pink Gin should be. Believe it or not but pink gin is not actually pink. We included raspberry’s and strawberry’s as part of the distillation process and you cant actually colour your gin that way. Most company’s have to use artificial colourings at the end of the process to get that colour. To keep to that pink traditional look, we prefer to keep things natural with our Gins, so we use colouring based on Carrot concentrate giving us our look. The down side of using natural colouring, it fades over time, you will see it start fading after a year slowly. (Not that I know may gins that are bought are kept on a self for over a year.
It's February, the month of love, this Gin is inspired by the ones closest to us.
Aroma: Raspberry and strawberry initially, with a sweet floral finish.
Taste (Neat): Floral and juniper to start, moving to touches of raspberry, with a hint of chocolate at the end.
Garnish: With raspberries or strawberries (or both!).
I recommend The Only Exception with lemonade rather than tonic as I believe the lemonade lifts the raspberry and strawberry flavours.
