Eccentric Violet Flavoured Gin Is The Tipple Your Tonic Will Thank You For

Eccentric Violet Flavoured Gin is contributing to the Violet gin craze representing Welsh gin rather impressively.

If you haven’t heard by now, violet flavoured gin has been making headlines in the gin world and from the looks of things, this phenomenon will carry on in the foreseeable future.

Eccentric gin started in the cellars of a building which has stood in Llantrisant for over 200 years. Their gins are distilled by brewers, mixologists and even a freeman of Llantrisant.

The Eccentric Violet Flavoured Gin is London Dry gin based at 40%. This tipple is a simple gin with a subtle colour with its flavour bursting of violet flowers. The smoothness of its taste is complimented by violet sweetness.

If you’re trying this out and willing to take up on a suggestion, we recommend serving this with The Artisan Drinks Co Violet Tonic Water to amplify this gin’s sweetness and violet goodness.

Eccentric gin source the best botanicals including a specially imported Croatian juniper. They also feature the sacred Celtic botanical “wild sunflower” in each of their gins. This botanical is also known as “Elfwort” or “Marchalan” in welsh and imparts a subtle sweetness with an underlying floral bitterness.

Eccentric Violet Flavoured Gin and the rest of the Eccentric Gin range.

As barrel masters of many trades, it comes as no surprise that they are using various types of barrels to age different gin styles.

The rest of the range of Eccentric Gin consists of Limbeck – New Western Style gin, Young Tom – Fresh Juniper Malt gin and Cardiff Dry – A unique Dry gin.

You can pick up a bottle of Eccentric Violet Flavoured Gin (and the rest of their range) on their website for £30.00 (70 cl).
