Gin distilleries have been going to great lengths to create us Gin lovers the perfect G&T. They make their conconctions with precision and a real dedication that gives us the best of results every time.
In the spirit of ‘The Big Gin Theory’ logo, I have been experimenting with ways to create my own mix.
Step forward Te-Tonic. I received a selection of these little infusion pouches recently as a gift. Te-Tonic Infusions are a combination of botanicals, herbs, teas and spices in a smooth, silky pyramid-like pouch. They claim to impregnate (oo-err) each G&T with a perfect blend of botanicals.
So I grabbed my Gin of choice this week, Whittakers Yorkshire Gin and selected the ‘Orange Energy’ Infusion and got to mixing. This particular infusion is made up of orange peel, lemon peel, cinnamon, mint and green tea.
5 minutes later, having left the flavours to ‘mingle’ resulted in a subtle orange infusion, not too dissimilar to the Seville Orange flavoured Gins I have tried in the past. I would need them to be a bit more exciting and flavoursome to convince me to invest in more of these infusion pouches, but for a first time infuser it was decent. For now though, I will leave it to the professionals and stick to the flavoured Gins I have come to love.
