I couldn’t resist writing about this lovely South African gin after an encounter when out for a pub lunch today with my family.
The spirit has a subtle green hue and had quite a floral (elderflower?) aroma. I’m not a massive fan of gins with colours, and was hugely relieved that when mixed with Fever Tree light tonic water the tint vanished into the mixer.
It was a really refreshing gin and tonic to drink, I liked the juniper, and the hint of licorice gave it an interesting dimension. I’d be interested to try this in cocktails – perhaps a John Collins?
A lovely gin – well worth grabbing a bottle if you see it. Vera Gin Rating : 7.5/10
It costs about £40 a bottle. The only decent UK stockist I could find online was Museum Wines.
