Tasting a Jacqson Gin and Tonic (Episode 102 Part 4)

In this part of the episode, we taste a Jacqson Gin and tonic. Jacqueline suggested we add a slice of orange and a sprig of rosemary.

The orange to compliment the orange botanicals already in the gin and the rosemary more for the aesthetics.

Tasting Jawbox Gin (Episode 105 Part 1)

In the first part of this episode, we taste Jawbox Gin distilled in Belfast, Northern Ireland. So apologies for stating it was not from the UK – I had understood when making the video it was distilled in the Republic of Ireland, not from Northern Ireland! That will teach me to check the labels more carefully before reviewing!

Jawbox gets its name from the big old boxy Belfast Sinks around which most of the day’s gossip would be discussed!

John believed he could taste mint in this Gin when tasted neat, but thought the taste was more floral once the tonic water was added. However, he could still get a hint of that mint!

A great gin why not give it a shot!

Tasting Jacqson Gin with Ginger Ale (Episode 102 Part 3)

In this part of our Jacqson Gin Episode, we taste a measure of Jacqson Gin with two measures of Ginger Ale. Jacqueline argues that many people who think they do not like Gin actually mean they do not like Gin and Tonic.

Quite often when people who think they do not like Gin try it with a different mixer they are pleased to learn it is the tonic element they do not enjoy, not, in fact, the Gin.

Jacqueline explained that the rhubarb taste goes well with ginger as with Rhubarb and Ginger pudding thus making Ginger ale an excellent mixer to compliment the overtone of Rhubarb in her Gin.
