For your first taste of Sibling Gin, the siblings recommend that you try it with Bottlegreen Light Tonic Water, which you'll find included in your December's Gin of the Month box. The Sibling siblings, Felix, Clarice, Cicely, and Digby drink it with no garnish to get a "clear, untarnished idea of the flavours."
If your drink feels naked without garnish, then the brothers and sisters have two ideas for you: orange peel and sliced blueberries, both notes with which the gin is made. The orange peel adds a complementary aroma and a slightly bitter orange flavour so that the resulting G&T doesn't end up too juicy. For the blueberries, slicing is crucial because the tough skin of the berry doesn't allow flavours to escape. If you slice - or even spear them on a cocktail stick - the blueberry notes will come through more readily.
But once you've tried Bottlegreen Light Tonic Water with your gin, don’t stop there! Bottlegreen offers a whole range of delicious beverages, from mixers and flavoured tonics, to coridals and sparkling pressés.
Bottlegreen has been producing natural soft drinks in the Cotswolds for over 21 years. Founded by husband and wife team Kit and Shireen Morris in 1989 when they planted vines to make elderflower wine, their first product was an elderflower cordial produced whilst they waited the wine to mature.
Today, Bottlegreen soft drinks continues its wine heritage by cold filtering all its drinks and keeps them naturally fresh by using Cotswolds spring water.
