This gin is vivid indigo-blue, thanks to an infusion of butterfly pea blossoms, and transforms to an attractive pink hue as tonic or citrus are added. The aroma is relatively neutral and the palate is mild and malty, with hints of coriander, orris root and white pepper. But it’s really all about the eye-popping blue color and all the party tricks that can be performed with this gin. ... More details

Country: Canada

In Canada, wines are produced in many different parts of the country, and there are major vineyards everywhere from Ontario, British Columbia, southern Quebec and Nova Scotia. Canadian wineries have been producing wine for over two hundred years now, and the Canadian wine industry has seen significant development and expansion over the past couple of decades, when the unique attributes of the country's produce began to find popularity overseas. The most widely admired Canadian wines are ice wines, which are made using grapes which have been allowed to freeze during the early frosts. This process intensifies the flavors and sweetness of the grapes, resulting in highly characterful wines with distinctive properties, and works extremely well with the grape varietals which flourish in the cooler climate of the country.

Don't be deceived by the colour into thinking this is a highly floral gin. It's much closer to a typical London dry, but with a delicious, delicate sweetness lurking in the background. The colour is a knockout, whether you drink it deeply purple in a martini or add some tonic and watch it pale to a pink/lilac shade.

A new addition to my favourites, which include Bombay Sapphire, The Botanist, Wire Works, Bluecoat, Sipsmith and Dripping Springs.
