Floral flavours and a candy-floss-coloured blush make Thunderflower Gin‘s summertime sip the perfect garden party tipple.
The small-batch Devon distillery is known for its true craft gins. The team uses the London Dry method in one-shot distillation runs, extracting delicate botanical flavours through vapour infusion.
To create Elder Bay Blush, the distillers use this process to marry bold notes of juniper with floral elderflower and bay leaf. A second infusion, instilling the flavours of locally foraged botanicals including rowan berries, hawthorn, hibiscus, gorse and rosehip, adds layers of subtle tartness with jammy overtones.
On the nose, the exuberant gin conjures summer pastoral scenes of frothy elderflower blooms and sunshine-yellow sprays of gorse.
The spiritsmiths recommend serving it with a premium tonic and plenty of ice for a pink G&T unlike any other. We reckon it would also make a delicious blushed gin spritz – just add grapefruit juice, a dash of bitters and top with elderflower tonic.
