Sharish Blue Magic Gin: A Colour-Changing Portuguese Delight (800 Words)

Unleash the magic with Sharish Blue Magic Gin, a captivating spirit produced in Portugal's Alentejo region. This gin goes beyond the expected, offering a stunning visual transformation alongside a flavour profile that's both intriguing and delightful.

A Feast for the Eyes: The Alluring Colour Shift

The first captivating aspect of Sharish Blue Magic Gin is its vibrant blue colour. This mesmerising hue comes courtesy of a natural botanical – the Clitoria Ternatea flower, also known as the Butterfly Pea flower. But the magic doesn't stop there. When you mix Sharish Blue Magic Gin with tonic water, the acidity triggers a colour change, transforming the vibrant blue into a soft, captivating pink. This playful metamorphosis adds a touch of whimsy to your cocktail experience, making it a perfect conversation starter at gatherings.

A Journey for the Palate: Unveiling the Flavour Profile

Beyond the visual spectacle, Sharish Blue Magic Gin boasts a unique and complex flavour profile.  The gin is crafted using a blend of 100% Portuguese botanicals, each meticulously chosen to create a harmonious symphony of taste. Here's a breakdown of the key botanicals and their influence:

  • Juniper: The cornerstone of any gin, juniper provides the essential piney and earthy base that defines the spirit.
  • Coriander Seeds: Coriander adds a touch of warmth and citrus zest, complementing the juniper.
  • Alentejo Lemon Peel: Locally sourced lemon peel infuses the gin with a bright, refreshing citrus character.
  • Ginger & Cardamom: These aromatic spices introduce a subtle warmth and complexity, adding an intriguing depth to the flavour profile.
  • Strawberry & Raspberry: Real Portuguese fruits lend a hint of sweetness and juicy character, creating a delightful balance against the juniper and citrus notes.
  • Clitoria Ternatea (Butterfly Pea Flower): This beautiful flower adds a touch of floral elegance and is responsible for the captivating blue hue.

Tasting Sharish Blue Magic Gin: A Sensory Exploration

On the Nose: The initial aroma offers a delightful interplay between the juniper's piney earthiness and vibrant citrus notes from the lemon peel. Hints of warm spice from the ginger and cardamom peek through, followed by a subtle sweetness reminiscent of strawberries and raspberries.

On the Palate: The first sip delivers a burst of flavour, where the juniper takes centre stage. The citrus notes from the lemon peel dance on the tongue, while the warmth of ginger and cardamom unfolds. The sweetness of the berries emerges subtly, balancing the juniper's bite. The overall impression is smooth and refreshing, with a lingering hint of spice and a touch of floral elegance.

The Finish: Sharish Blue Magic Gin leaves a clean and refreshing finish, with the juniper and citrus notes lingering alongside a subtle sweetness from the berries. The warmth of the spices provides a pleasant aftertaste.
