Madderty Micro's Flavoured Gin are always created with only the finest of Scottish fruits (fresh fruits only which are subsequently frozen to help extract all that flavour) blended with our own unique recipie compounded gin. Our recipies are designed to stick as closely to how liqueur style spirits have, for generations, been made in kitchens across the UK. When I first discovered the magic of a homemade Sloe Gin it most certainly was not 20%abv! It was a full strength gin infused with fresh sloe berries and sweetened with sugar, so in reality the ABV would be around 35%. Thanks to modern laws and regulations we have had to ramp the ABV up to 37.5% so we can call it a flavoured gin, the only alternative would be to dilute it down to 20-24% to be allowed to call it a liqueur! Quite frankly the thought of that did not appeal and is far removed from the delicious drinks I remember.
For the Rasberry Gin it really is that simple, yes yes I know raspberries are not blue, I'll come to that! Fresh Perthshire raspberries, our own gin (yes we sell that too it is called "The Nudist") sweetened up with some normal cane sugar. It had always been one of our best sellers but in essence one that just wasn't perfect yet in our eyes. It took an age, and in fact the development of our Pink Gin to highlight what was missing. It was the blue element, a flower called a butterfly Blue Pea Flower. It leaches out its blue colour into the gin but it also has a soft subtle flavour that enhances the Raspberry. You wouldn;t notice it was there as a seperate flavour though. Then in with the mixer and that blue colour transforms back to the raspberry pink that it should be! A magical colour changing flavoured gin!
Well that depends on what you like really doesn't it! I know how I like it, but then if that does not rock your world then try something different. Any way below are some suggestions
