The key  is  to experiment  to find  the  combination of gin,  tonic and  garnish  to make  the perfect  G&T for  you.   And, depending  on  your mood,  there are likely  to be  many different  flavour profiles that suit your tastebuds. Tonic is a  matter of taste too, a Classic is  perfect for a  Juniper led gin.   The subtle flavours of Elderflower compliment a floral gin,  while the lemon thyme  in a Mediterranean  tonic adds  a real zing  to a citrus gin. A  spice  gin  blends  well  with  warming  notes   and subtle lemongrass flavours in Ginger ale. 
                  Add a garnish of fresh herbs                        from the garden terrace N.B.  Mouse over a picture to stop the slideshow!                                                               

  A perfect G&T for you...

Tasting Notes…
You   might   like   to   take   a   note   or   two   on   your tasting   journey.      There   will   be   many   gins   for you     to     nose     and     taste,     botanicals     you’ll recognise    and    others    that    taste    good    and may not remember after a few glasses of gin! Garnishes   too   play   their   part   and   there   will be   favourites   with   different   gin   profiles.      It’s handy   to   know   when   you   see   a   new   gin   on the   shelves,   note   the   botanicals   and   you’ll   be more aware if it’s one you’re likely to enjoy.
Juniper berries,  coriander seed,  cubeb pepper  and cardamon pods, just a few of the spices to nose that may enhance  your tasting experience, or try adding a few to your  G&T to amp up the spice level.    Try a cinnamon stick or cloves added to orange, coriander with lime or blueberries with lemon.

Enhance the flavour profile…

An orange wheel  compliments  cloves and cassia in a spicy gin, a pepper adds warmth and depth too.   Grapefruit  peel brings a light freshness to florals.   Peel is more fragrant than a slice, just a little adds a real zing.   Star anise works well in both spicy and floral gins, adding a menthol kick,  while an  apple slice  brings out the acidity in an herbaceous gin.  Balance a citrus gin with basil,  mint,  coriander or thyme.   Lime, lemon, orange or pink grapefruit add a  touch of  sweetness  to a dry gin.    Add a few berries and  an aromatic herb to a fruity gin, the aroma will be heightened and the delicious flavours too.
