Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom: A Symphony of Citrus and Spice

Embark on a captivating journey of flavour with Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom, a gin meticulously crafted to capture the essence of a sun-drenched citrus grove. This expression takes the classic Bathtub Gin recipe as its foundation, then infuses it with the vibrant notes of Persian lime and delicate orange blossom, resulting in a gin that is both invigorating and sophisticated.

Aromatic Adventure

The very first encounter with Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom is an aromatic delight. Juniper, the quintessential gin botanical, forms the backbone of the aroma. However, it is quickly embraced by a wave of zesty Persian lime peel, its citrusy character both sharp and invigorating. Underpinning these bold notes is a whisper of orange blossom, its floral fragrance adding a touch of elegance and perfume. Hints of other botanicals, carefully chosen to complement the citrus theme, emerge subtly, adding complexity and intrigue.

A Taste of Sunshine

The palate experience with Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom is a vibrant explosion of citrus refreshment. The juniper asserts itself initially, providing a familiar warmth and dryness. However, it is swiftly overtaken by a burst of lime zest, its tangy flavour both juicy and invigorating. The orange blossom, which was more reserved on the nose, comes to the fore on the taste buds, its floral sweetness weaving a delightful counterpoint to the citrusy zest. Hints of spice, reminiscent of cardamom and clove, emerge in the background, adding a touch of complexity and warmth. The overall texture is smooth and velvety, leaving a clean, refreshing finish that lingers pleasantly on the tongue.

The Perfect Serve

Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom is a gin that shines in its simplicity. For the perfect serve, pair 50ml of the gin with 150ml of a premium Indian tonic water, such as Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water. Garnish with a wedge of fresh lime to accentuate the citrus notes, or a sprig of fresh mint for a touch of herbal intrigue. This classic Gin & Tonic combination allows the gin's vibrant flavours to take centre stage, resulting in a refreshingly light and uplifting cocktail.

Food Pairings to Tantalise

Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom's citrusy profile makes it a versatile companion for a wide range of culinary delights. Here are some suggested food pairings to bring out the best in both the gin and the dish:

  • Seafood: The gin's zesty character pairs beautifully with fresh seafood. Try it alongside grilled prawns, seared scallops, or a light and flavoursome fish ceviche.
  • Spicy Dishes: The lime and orange blossom notes can help to cut through the heat of spicy cuisine. Enjoy it with Thai curries, Vietnamese pho, or a Mexican fajita feast.
  • Salads: The gin's refreshing citrus profile complements the crisp flavours of a summer salad. Experiment with ingredients like avocado, grapefruit, and fresh herbs to create a flavour explosion.
  • Soft Cheeses: The gin's creamy texture and citrus notes find a perfect match with soft cheeses like goat cheese or ricotta. Pair it with a cheese board selection for a delightful after-dinner treat.

Beyond the G&T

While Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Persian Lime & Orange Blossom excels in a Gin & Tonic, its versatility extends beyond this classic cocktail. Here are a couple of alternative serves to explore:

  • Floral Martini: Combine 50ml of the gin with 10ml of dry vermouth and a few drops of orange blossom water. Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lime or a single orange blossom.
