Greensand Ridge Raspberry Ghost Gin captures the flavour of delicious Kentish raspberries at the peak of their aromatic ripeness.
Don’t expect a sickly sweet and bright red assault on the tastebuds, it’s a more subtle taste than the likes of a raspberry gin liqueur.
On the nose is a delicate raspberry aroma, more akin to an autumn raspberry on a misty morning than a bright summer berry.
The spirit really comes alive with the addition of some sweetness and sharpness so for a perfect serve pour over ice with Mediterranian Tonic and a slice of lemon. Fresh mint and raspberry to garnish is also delicious.
If you’re looking for something a bit more fancy then the Greensand Ridge signature serve in their distillery is the Sour Ghost – a classic Sour cocktail made with the addition of Raspberry Ghost, replacing whisky.
If you can’t make it to the distillery, here’s how to make your own.
