Our special edition Box Moor Gin is distilled to a classic London Dry Gin style. Serve as a straight gin & tonic to allow the enhanced juicy plum and herbaceous notes of the rare Hertfordshire juniper to shine. For more complex gin cocktails try these suggestions. From a fun Oreo cookie cocktail to a gin sour, Box Moor Gin is the perfect base to build cocktails around.
GIN & ORANGE SOUR
Sours contain a spirit, citrus, sweetener and often an egg white. Here we’ve used fresh squeezed orange juice and egg white which once frothed picks up the orangey citrus. This gin sour cocktail is a flavoursome accompaniment to Thai spiced meals.
