Putting our fruitful tree’s to good use we have distilled in to each batch; 10kg of freshly picked damsons, farmhouse Aga dried clementine wheels and the perfect blend of Christmas spice in to our base recipe Gin. The aroma instantly transports you to the festive season with hints of star anise and cinnamon, on the palate a spiced subtle jammy flavour with a warming citrus finish.
The Holly & The Ivy makes the most beautiful Christmas G&T, simply add 50 ml of Gin to a glass full of ice (too little ice melts quicker therefore diluting your drink) and top up with good plain Indian tonic. Garnishes aren’t needed for any of our gin’s but a clove studded clementine wheel adds a festive flare to you tipple if serving at a Christmas gathering!
For those winters nights try our Hot Toddy recipe, you wont be disappointed. Simply add 100ml of just off the boil water to 50ml of The Holly & The Ivy Christmas Spirit, stir in a tsp of English honey and add a clementine wheel. Let sit for 5 mins or so and there you have it, Christmas in a mug!
