As Brockmans gin is made from blueberries and blackberries, it has an aromatic berry flavor, plus, a smooth finish that is a pleasant surprise. Especially, if you’ve been put off the strong piney taste of a standard gin made from juniper berries.
Sip Brockmans gin neat, and you will appreciate its silky fruitiness as well as its flagrant notes from other unique botanicals, such as cinnamon-like cassia bark and licorice. Similar to traditional gins, Brockmans’ is distilled from a copper pot still batch process, after a 24-hour pure grain steeping cycle.
But, will it make a good old classic G&T – aka Gin and Tonic? After trying Brockman gin’s recipe for the time-honored highball – with ingredients that include the use of Florida’s fresh fruit, we positively agreed it does.
The Brockmans and Tonic Recipe
2 oz Brockmans Gin
1 oz Premium Tonic
Peel of pink grapefruit
A few fresh blueberries
Fill your glass with big ice cubes. Add a double measure of Brockmans Gin. Gently pour the tonic on a metal swizzle spoon to keep the fizz. Twist the pink grapefruit peel before watching it sink into your drink. Garnish with a few fresh blueberries.
