Zuidam Dutch Courage Cherry Gin 70cl
Deliciously sweet and full of cherries, with a delicate note of citrus.
Zuidam Dutch Courage Cherry Gin
Launched in 2019, Dutch distillers Zuidam have created a deliciously sweet and fruity gin with their Dutch Courage Cherry Gin.
Created in small batches, its a delightful expression of rich cherries and piney juniper - even so far as having a delightful pink colour. It's fresh and fruity and has a degree of sweetness to it (which is unsuprising in a cherry gin).
With a full cherry flavour and sweetened aroma, its definitely a fruity gin - yet it has an elegance to it. The sweetness is paired with the pine flavour from the juniper, which helps to balance the gin perfectly.
Upon tasting the cherry is very forward, with the juniper coming in quickly after. As the cherry flavour fades, there follows a delicious note of almond. As the mouth becomes more aware of this, there follows a delicate citrus note. The finish is mellow, and leaves a delicious note of cherry in the mouth.
If you like fruity gins, this is definitely one for you to try!

With strong fruity notes, and a degree of sweetness - in our opinion this works best with a neutral tonic such as Double Dutch Indian Tonic Water. In a large glass filled with ice, pour 50ml of the gin and top up the glass with tonic (150-200ml depending on taste). For a decadent finish, garnish with a maraschino cherry.
