Unveiling the Mystery: A Deep Dive into McQueen and the Violet Fog Gin

A Brazilian Enigma Arrives

McQueen and the Violet Fog Gin is more than just a spirit; it's an experience. Distilled in the captivating hills of Jundiaí, Brazil, this unique gin transcends expectations with its complex flavour profile and intriguing name, inspired by a poem. Prepared to embark on a journey for the senses? Let's delve into the enigmatic McQueen and the Violet Fog Gin.

A Symphony of Botanicals

McQueen and the Violet Fog distinguishes itself through its use of 21 botanicals, a remarkably high number compared to most gins.  Six of these botanicals are particularly intriguing, venturing beyond the traditional juniper-forward profile. Here's where the magic begins:

  • Basil: This fresh herb introduces a touch of peppery spice and herbaceous depth, adding an unexpected yet delightful twist.
  • Rosemary: Earthy and slightly piney, rosemary complements the juniper while offering a touch of fragrant intrigue.
  • Fennel Seed: A warming, liquorice-like note emerges from the fennel seeds, adding complexity and a touch of sweetness.
  • Calamansi: This Southeast Asian citrus fruit brings a burst of zesty vibrancy, balancing the other botanicals with a touch of tartness.
  • Star Anise: A familiar yet multifaceted spice, star anise adds warmth, sweetness, and a hint of liquorice, creating a captivating complexity.
  • Açai: This unique Brazilian superfood, rarely found in gin, contributes a subtle berry note with a touch of earthy richness.

The Tasting Experience

On the Nose: The initial encounter with McQueen and the Violet Fog is an aromatic revelation. Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, forms the foundation, but it's not the sole star. Fresh herbal notes of basil and rosemary intertwine with the citrusy vibrancy of calamansi. A hint of peppery spice from the fennel seed emerges, while subtle whispers of star anise and açai add intrigue.

On the Palate: The first sip is a delightful surprise. The juniper presence is undeniable, yet beautifully balanced by the symphony of botanicals. The basil and rosemary offer a burst of freshness, followed by the zesty warmth of the calamansi. Hints of liquorice and spice from the fennel seed and star anise dance on the tongue, while the subtle açai note adds a touch of earthy depth. This is a gin that unfolds with each sip, revealing new layers of flavour with every exploration.

The Finish: The finish is remarkably smooth and lingering. The juniper fades gently, leaving behind a pleasant warmth from the star anise and a touch of citrus zest from the calamansi. Hints of the herbal notes from the basil and rosemary linger on the palate, creating a lasting impression.

Unlocking the Potential: Serving Suggestions

McQueen and the Violet Fog's versatility shines through in a variety of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to unlock its full potential:

  • The Classic G&T: For a refreshing twist on the classic gin and tonic, use a premium Indian tonic water. Garnish with a sprig of fresh basil and a slice of calamansi for an aromatic and visually stunning presentation.
  • The Violet Fog Martini: Muddle a few fresh blueberries with a bar spoon of sugar in a shaker. Add McQueen and the Violet Fog Gin, dry vermouth, and ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a single blueberry for a touch of elegance.
  • The Brazilian Sling: This vibrant cocktail pays homage to McQueen and the Violet Fog's Brazilian roots. Combine the gin with fresh lime juice, sugar syrup, and a touch of açai puree in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Top with soda water and garnish with a lime wedge and a sprig of mint.
