Madderty Micro's Flavoured Gin are always created with only the finest of Scottish fruits (fresh fruits only which are subsequently frozen to help release all their 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 Blueberry Gin it really is that simple! Fresh Scottish blueberries, our own gin (yes we sell that too it is called "The Nudist") sweetened up with some sugar. The result is something a little richer, darker and more intense but still nice and fruit forward. We love this one with soda and lime!
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
- On the Rocks
- Fresh Blueberries
- Frozen Blueberry Ice!!!
- Soda & Lime
- In a whole host of fabulous cocktails
