Spirit of the week: Blackwater Wexford Strawberry Gin

Finally, a nigh on perfect for summer in Ireland.

Blackwater Distillery has created a gin loosely based on their excellent No. 5 and infused it with Wexford strawberries and distilled it with minced fruit.

The finished gin is given further maceration with strawberries and blackcurrants to create a lovely rose-pink colour.

The strawberry is detectable on the nose along with juniper, angelica and spice, and is distinct on the middle palate and on the finish when ripe creamy strawberries come through.

Try with good tonic, black pepper, sliced strawberry and a basil leaf; or sip on its own or with ice.
