Blueberry & Vanilla Gin
I found my thrill, on Blueberry Hill.
£26 • 500ml • 40% vol
This is a proper full strength 40% gin. It is not a liqueur.
We start by distilling a dry gin created specifically for this spirit.
After distillation, we infuse the dry gin with wild Canadian blueberries. This imparts a deep purple colour in the gin.
Once the infusion is complete, we add our homemade Tahitian vanilla extract.
There is a degree of sweetness. But the sugar content is much lower than supermarket flavoured gins.

Lemonade, soda and tonic works well with this.
For tonic, use a light tonic.
Try a squeeze of lime with the mixer.
