V2C Orange Dutch Dry Gin 50cl
Born in Amsterdam, but inspired by the world - with a whole basket of oranges thrown into the mix!
V2C Orange Dutch Dry Gin
For their Orange variant, V2C have taken their Classic Dutch Dry gin and added additional oranges, and a hint of red chilli.
This ensures an extra zesty variation, with an interesting kick from the chill. The spices from the original recipe help to balance out what would otherwise by overwhelmingly citrus. This allows the juniper to reassert itself as it should be in a gin!
This is very much a gin which does what it says on the bottle.... heavy on the tangy orange notes in aroma and flavour. A hint of ginger and chilli help to cut through this, and as the drink progresses pine from the juniper builds slowly.
This is a gin perfect for those long summer evenings, or reminiscing over that long ago (or so it might feel) holiday!

This gin makes a deliciously refreshing gin and tonic. It can be made with either a neutral tonic such as Fever-Tree Indian Tonic, or you can increase the orange flavours by mixing with Fentimans Valencian Orange.
For either, take a large glass filled with ice and add 50ml of the gin. Gently pour over 150ml of your chosen tonic and garnish with slices of fresh orange and ginger.
