14. Gin Mare
And we go back to the gin! As the current drink of choice, gin is sure to be a hit.
The Editor of LUXlife Magazine, Laura Brookes, had this to say about this delicious gin.
“Most gins have a rather savoury, yet undeniably sweet, floral scent on the nose. Gin Mare takes this to another level, with a gin flavoured with Mediterranean mainstays: Arbequina olives from Spain, basil from Italy, Rosemary from Greece, and Thyme from Turkey.
The result is a clean, fragrant and crisp finish that serves to distinguish Gin Mare from an increasingly competitive arena. We tasted it neat – a delight – and with a splash of tonic water. Regardless of your preferred method, Gin Mare is sure to be a new favourite. The notes on the palette are an interesting mix of the expected with the unusual – just fantastic.”
