Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin 70cl
A deep red colour hints at the delicious sour cherry flavours found in this gin
Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin
With it's deep red colour, this gin doesn't hide the fact that it's packed full of marasca cherries!
The aroma doesn't disappoint either, with a strong cherry aroma joined by Juniper.
The initial taste is quite surprising, as there is more of a classical gin taste, with strong juniper and spicy notes. As the flavours develop a velvety and deep Marasca Cherry taste comes through. The finish is long, with a sour note from the cherries.

This gin is truly versatile, and can be enjoyed neat over ice, or in a classic gin and tonic (50ml of gin to 150ml of Fentimans Premium Tonic Water works really well.... garnish, of course, with a Maraschino Cherry).
This can also be enjoyed as a cocktail in a Sour Cherry Martinez. In a mixing glass filled with ice add 45ml of the Sour Cherry Gin, 30ml of Sweet Vermouth, 5ml of Luxardo Maraschino Originale and 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters. Stir well and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the zest of a lemon.
