A Cup of Yorkshire, in a Glass: Exploring the Depths of Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin

For gin enthusiasts seeking a truly unique and award-winning tipple, look no further than Masons of Yorkshire Tea Gin. This innovative spirit, crafted in the heart of Yorkshire, England, by Masons Distillery, seamlessly blends the invigorating essence of Yorkshire Tea with the classic juniper base of gin. The result? A complex and captivating beverage that's sure to tantalise your taste buds and leave a lasting impression.

Unveiling the Aroma:

The first encounter with Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin is an olfactory delight. As you raise the glass to your nose, a wave of dry, earthy aromas characteristic of black tea immediately greets you. This is interwoven with the crisp, piney notes of juniper, the foundation of any good gin. Hints of citrus zest, particularly lemon and lime, add a touch of vibrancy, while subtle hints of warming spice like cardamom and coriander peek through, promising a well-rounded flavour profile.

The Taste Adventure Begins:

On the palate, Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin delivers a surprising elegance. The juniper asserts itself initially, providing the expected gin backbone. However, it quickly gives way to the unique influence of the Yorkshire Tea. This manifests as a wave of dryness, a characteristic often prized by gin connoisseurs. The tea doesn't overwhelm the other botanicals, but rather complements them beautifully. Delicate notes of citrus dance on the tongue, offering a refreshing counterpoint to the earthy tea and juniper. As the flavour develops, a symphony of warming spices emerges, with cardamom and coriander adding a touch of complexity without becoming overpowering.

A Lingering Finish:

The finish of Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin is truly exceptional. The dryness from the tea persists, leaving a clean and refreshing sensation on the palate. The juniper makes a subtle reappearance, reminding you of the spirit's heritage. Lingering hints of citrus zest and warming spice round out the experience, creating a desire for another sip.

Serving Suggestions to Elevate Your Experience:

Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin's unique character shines through in a variety of serving styles. Here are a few suggestions to unlock its full potential:

  • The Classic G&T: For a true appreciation of the gin's complexity, a simple Gin & Tonic is the way to go. Fill a highball glass with ice, add a generous measure of Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin (50ml), top with a premium Indian tonic water, and garnish with a twist of lemon peel. The citrus twist will enhance the zesty notes in the gin, while the tonic water will balance the dryness and create a refreshing drink.
  • A Touch of Tradition: For a nod to Yorkshire's tea-drinking heritage, try the "Yorkshire Tea Time" cocktail. Combine 50ml of Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin with 25ml of Earl Grey tea syrup (easily made by simmering equal parts sugar and water with Earl Grey tea bags) and 25ml of fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon peel and a dried sprig of thyme.
  • A Fruity Twist: If you enjoy a touch of sweetness, the "Yorkshire Rose" is a delightful option.  Combine 50ml of Masons Yorkshire Tea Gin with 25ml of fresh grapefruit juice, 25ml of rose water, and 15ml of simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a rose petal and a sprig of fresh rosemary.
