Fever-Tree tonic water revisited

After last night’s tasting, I had three bottles of Fever-Tree Tonic Water left, so I thought I would use them up.

Instead of the Blackwood’s gin, I used some of the Plymouth gin I had left, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Actually, it goes beyond “pleasantly surprised” and firmly into “blown away”. The extra juniper of the Plymouth gin really shone through and combined really very well with the Fever-Tree tonic water. The G&T was incredibly clean, fresh and dry. Gone was the flavour of carbonated water and the juniper and quinine came through crisp and clear. All I had to do was choose my gin carefully.

At 75p per drink (a short one at that, as I tend to make my G&T in large sizes) it is still very pricey, but one to seriously consider for those special occasions.
