Gin Mare Capri 1L
Enriched with Capri Lemons and Bergamot, this is Gin Mare in a new light
Gin Mare Capri
A place which conjures images of elegance, style and the Italian lifestyle.... the island of Capri, in the gulf of Naples. It is from here that Gin Mare have taken inspiration for their new Gin, ten years after creating their iconic Mediterranean gin.
In a beautiful blue glass bottle, inspiration has been taken from the famous Blue Caves of Capri, and the quality feel continues with a canvas printed label. A collar label, in the shape of the Island rounds this off hung delicately from the neck of the bottle.
Two new ingredients make themselves known in this edition; In keeping with their other botanicals (all from the mediterranean region) these are Lemons from Capri and bergamot. These are added to the distinctive, mediterranean botanicals found in Gin Mare, being Arbequina Olives from Spain, Basil from Italy, Rosemary from Greece, and Thyme from Turkey.
They keep the same artisinal approach in making this gin as they do in the original Gin Mare. The citrus fruits are all peeled by hand, before being macerated for 12 months in small containers. This ensures a real depth of flavour.
The flavours and aromas of this edition are reminiscent of its older brother, but with the added enrichment of deeper herbal and citrus profiles (both in taste, and aroma) from the lemons and bergamot.
Like its older brother, the flavours in this gin stand for themselves, and work particulary well with 1724 Tonic Water (it doesn't overpower the gin, and allows the additional botanicals to come through). Use 50ml of gin with 150 / 200ml (depending how strong you like it), combine over ice in a large copa-glass and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lemon.
