On the Nose

As you pour Firebox Pixie Tears Gin, a wave of delicate elderflower greets your senses. The floral notes are intertwined with a subtle hint of juniper, the gin's backbone, and a whisper of cucumber, creating an intriguing and inviting aroma. There's no harshness or alcohol bite, just a gentle sweetness that promises a delightful drinking experience.

On the Palate

The first sip of Firebox Pixie Tears Gin is an explosion of flavour. The sweetness of elderflower takes centre stage, coating the tongue with a pleasant floral character. This sweetness is beautifully balanced by the subtle earthiness of juniper and the refreshing coolness of cucumber. The cucumber note isn't overpowering, but rather adds a touch of summery vibrance that keeps the gin feeling light and easy to drink. The texture is smooth and well-rounded, with the 40% ABV providing a gentle warmth that lingers on the finish.

Beyond the First Sip

The beauty of Firebox Pixie Tears Gin lies in its versatility. While it's certainly enjoyable neat, allowing the full range of flavours to shine through, it truly comes alive in cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • The Enchanted Garden: Combine 50ml of Firebox Pixie Tears Gin, 25ml of fresh lemon juice, 15ml of elderflower liqueur, and a sprig of mint in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a single edible flower for an extra touch of magic.
  • The Pixie Spritz: In a highball glass filled with ice, combine 50ml of Firebox Pixie Tears Gin, 100ml of good quality sparkling water, and a squeeze of fresh lime. Garnish with a slice of cucumber for a refreshing and light summer drink.
