Just had this in the Gin Explorer box and it's suggested garnish is Jasmine flowers. After enquiring I found that it's dried flowers that are needed. These aren't that easy to source singlely but I did know that Tea Pigs make a Jasmine Pearl tea (no tea in it, just the jasmine pearls) so I bought a box of these and had a Tea Pig infusion bag with my gin. This is not something I would have thought of with gin, I know tea versions of some gins exist (not for me as can't stand the taste of tea) but the flavour of dried jasmine does work very well in this gin. As I used the teabags it meant that the flavour of the garnish came through quite strongly towards the end (Tea Pigs usually recommend leaving their teabags to infuse for 3 minutes before drinking) and I really enjoyed this. Very different to any other gin I've tried. I've got 14 jasmine pearl teabags left so I'll probably buy this gin. Difficult to describe the flavours but quite nice and dry.
