All of you were begging us to perfect a citrus gin well you got your wish are you happy now?!
Being a Manchester Gin we just had to collaborate with Duerr’s who were putting marmalade on your great-great grandparents toast and giving them that morning citrus boost Since 1881! Making them also the UK’s longest running family company keeping your bread from going lonely Absolute heroes in our books. If you’d like to read more about their awesome story then click here guys!
Right onto the gin! This is exactly as it says on the tin a real citrus fest, an absolute dissolute orgy of citrus including; Lime, Lemon, Tangerine, Seville Orange, Bergamot then to finish it off the distillate passes over sweet orange peel to drag the final oils kicking and screaming into solution. The botanicals we’ve thrown in there for good measure; wild juniper (obviously?!), Coriander, Grains of Paradise, vanilla.
Resulting in a goldy elixir like ambrosia of the gods!
What profile you can expect from this orange tanned goddess just on the rocks!
Well to start you get a slight piney citrus pepperiness at the start, following on with a mixture of citrus fruits on the mid palate, finishing off with comforting notes of Madagascan Vanilla that linger for awhile enticing you for another sip!
The Ultimate Manchester Marmalade Gin Collins:
50ml Zymurgorium Manchester Marmalade Gin, 1tsp caster sugar, 1tsp marmalade, 25ml lemon juice, Lemon or Lime wedge lightly crushed and top up with elderflower tonic or soda.
Once all in go give it a whirlpool finish with some crushed ice and place in an old Duerr’s Marmalade jar!
P.s. if you’re feeling slightly more romantic or consider yourself a Casanova why not add a splash of rose water with the tonic?
