Sikkim Fraise is a beautifully distilled Spanish gin full of juniper and summer berries.
Sikkim is home to gins like none other in the world. Prepared with a base of red tea made in the Tibetan region of Sikkim, a part of India famed for some the best teas in the world. The least populated state in India, bordering Nepal and Tibet, and a gateway on the tea roads from China. It is here that the garden where their red tea grows can be found. Using copper stills made in 1831 and an ideal distillation method with the perfect balance in the proportions of alcohol and essences they make an exciting range of gins.
A gentle pine flavour combined with red tea, floral essences, strawberries of the forest and red cranberries. The coriander raises its head alongside a touch of bitter orange.
This has to be the best gin I've tasted, and mixed with tonic it gives off a slight iridescent look, which looks really impressive when serving.
