Today’s choice of gin is an excellent one of Belgian produce: Meyer’s M1 Gin. A soft, sweet and fruity gin that features the recently developed kiwi berry (or hardy kiwi). The first major harvest of those kiwi berries was in Belgium, back in 2013, and since then, found its way to the world of spirits. Spirits by Design, distillers of Meyer’s Gin, use these hardy kiwis to their advantage and the result is a very soft, floral and fruity gin, easily accessible to drink straight or mixed with a neutral tonic water. We at Gincubator have mixed it in a great Gin & Tonic recipe, that you definitely should try. Highly recommended! 🙂
Meyer’s Gin & Tonic – The Ingredients
Meyer’s Gin & Tonic – A Perfect Serve
Take a large balloon glass and fill it up with ice (use a lot, about 2/3 of the glass). Stir the ice inside the glass to let it cool (you can use a bar spoon for this). Remove any excess water with a cocktail strainer. Add the kiwi berries, but don’t forget to slice them in two. Next, add with a couple of dried juniper berries. Pour in 5 cL of Meyer’s Gin to your glass and a half bottle of Goldberg Tonic Water. Try doing this at the edge of your glass, but you can also use a bar spoon for this. Just try to keep the bubbles of your tonic in stead of pouring in the tonic all at once and lose any sparkling sensation while drinking your Gin & Tonic. Cheers!
