GinTing Passionfruit, Mango & Elderflower Gin: A Tropical Twist on Tradition

Introduction

Calling all gin enthusiasts with a penchant for the exotic! GinTing Passionfruit, Mango & Elderflower Gin offers a vibrant departure from the classic London Dry style. This award-winning spirit from Cornwall infuses the juniper backbone of gin with a burst of tropical fruits and delicate elderflower, creating a taste sensation that's both refreshing and complex.

This detailed tasting note will take you on a journey through the flavour profile of GinTing, exploring its aromas, taste, and finish. We'll also provide recommendations for serving suggestions and perfect pairings, so you can experience GinTing in all its glory.

Aroma

The first impression of GinTing is undoubtedly tropical. As you pour, a wave of ripe mango and passionfruit washes over your senses, conjuring up images of sun-drenched beaches and swaying palm trees. The sweetness of the fruit is balanced by a subtle tartness, hinting at the passionfruit's tangy core. Beneath this tropical layer lies the unmistakable juniper presence, the foundation of any good gin. However, GinTing's juniper is understated, playing a supporting role rather than stealing the show. Hints of floral elderflower emerge as well, adding a touch of elegance and perfume to the overall aroma.

Taste

The initial sip of GinTing is an explosion of juicy tropical fruits. The sweet mango flavour takes centre stage, its creamy texture coating the tongue. The passion fruit follows closely behind, adding a burst of tangy sweetness that cuts through the mango's richness. The juniper asserts itself more on the palate than on the nose, providing a welcome dryness and a subtle peppery note. The elderflower comes through subtly, weaving a floral note into the tapestry of flavours.

As the gin moves across the palate, a touch of warmth from the 42.5% ABV becomes apparent. However, it's not overpowering, instead adding a gentle heat that lingers pleasantly. The finish is clean and refreshing, with the tropical fruit flavours gradually fading, leaving a hint of juniper and elderflower lingering on the tongue.

Key Botanicals

  • Juniper Berries: The heart and soul of gin, juniper provides the essential piney and earthy character that defines the spirit. In GinTing, the juniper is present but restrained, allowing the tropical fruits to shine.
  • Mango & Passionfruit: These sun-kissed fruits are the stars of the show, delivering an abundance of juicy sweetness and a touch of tartness.
  • Elderflower: This delicate flower adds a touch of floral perfume and elegance to the gin, complementing the tropical fruit notes beautifully.

Serving Suggestions

GinTing's vibrant flavour profile lends itself to a variety of serving options. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • Classic Gin & Tonic: For a simple yet refreshing serve, pair 50ml of GinTing with a high-quality Indian tonic water. Garnish with a wedge of fresh mango or passion fruit for an extra burst of tropical flavour.
  • Elderflower Tonic Twist: Elevate your classic G&T by using elderflower tonic water instead of standard Indian tonic. This will enhance the floral notes of the gin and create a beautifully balanced drink.
  • Summer Spritz:  For a lighter option, perfect for warm summer days, combine 25ml of GinTing with prosecco and top with soda water. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of fresh mango.
  • Fruity Cocktail: GinTing is a fantastic base for a variety of fruit-based cocktails. Try muddling fresh berries with a squeeze of lime juice and top with GinTing and ginger ale for a delightful summer sipper.

Food Pairings

The versatility of GinTing extends to food pairings as well. Here are a few suggestions to complement the gin's unique flavour profile:

  • Spicy Food: The sweetness of GinTing cuts through the heat of spicy dishes beautifully. Pair it with Thai curries, jerk chicken, or anything else that packs a punch.
  • Seafood: The refreshing citrus notes of GinTing make it a perfect match for lighter seafood dishes, such as ceviche, grilled fish tacos, or sushi.
  • Cheese Platter: GinTing's sweet and tangy flavours can hold their own against creamy cheeses like brie or goat cheese. Opt for a cheese board with a variety of textures and flavours for a well-rounded experience.
  • Desserts: For a truly decadent treat, pair GinTing with a tropical fruit salad or a mango sorbet. The gin's sweetness will complement the dessert without being overpowering.
