Try this pretty gin cocktail, with hints of Aperol, strawberry, ginger—and black pepper. Doesn’t the sound of that just whet your tastebuds? We toast Earth Day with this drink made with a gin chock block with botanicals.

Tamworth Distilling has created a super gin with something extra—in this case, pretty botanicals. Beginning with a London Dry style, then infusing linden flower, red clover, elderflower, violet, and lemon verbena the result is a flavorful gin with spark.

Flora Gin, in its gorgeous bottle, can stand up in a cocktail, succeeding without a juniper-forward taste dominating. Try just adding water to release the  floral components from the liquor.

Tasting Notes: …bright citrus on the nose, which opens up into a delicate bouquet of floral notes on the palate. Notes of grapefruit, elderflower and lavender follow, culminating in a long finish with a touch of sweetness from local honey.

We love it in this refreshing cocktail which adds a touch of bitter and bright fruit, see the recipe with this post.
