Cotswolds Baharat Exotic Gin
This sumptuous small batch gin will take your taste buds on a journey through the Middle East and Asian subcontinent. The word Baharat means “blend of spices”, with a foundation for our gin of juniper and coriander to which we’ve added an exotic (hence the name) blend of cardamom, cumin, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, chilli and a hint of Jaffa orange.
Truly delicious on its own as a sipping gin, this is also perfect in a refreshing long drink with either tonic or soda.
Serving suggestions: Baharat Gin makes a deliciously unusual G&T; garnish with a slice of orange, perhaps half dipped in chilli flakes for a particularly exotic addition. Or try with ginger ale for a spicy alternative to tonic.
The finest ingredients: In addition to juniper, we add a fragrant combination of middle eastern spices to our pure wheat spirit; coriander seed, cardamom, chilli, cinnamon, clove, cumin and a touch of black pepper. A touch of sweet citrus oil comes from the addition of fresh Jaffa orange peel.
Nose: Lots of aromatic cardamom and a hint of cumin up front.
Palate: Rounded and warming, with sweet orange and lots more spice, and a gentle hint of chilli on the finish.
