Well, the answer is when it’s Minus 33 Juniper Distilled Spirit.
Now, if I remember anything from my night at Gin School, it was that juniper has to be dominant. But the finished product has also got to be of an ABV of above 37.5%.
So this beautiful looking bottle of spirit is pretty much gin in all but potency. But it makes up for it in taste, with 9 botanicals, including juniper but also lavender, elderflower, angelica and citrus. It’s very natural with no artificial flavours, preservatives or added sugar.
And should you be counting the calories, then this is perfect, as it comes in at only 46 calories per serving. You could add the Fevertree Low Calorie Tonic Water, which is only 15 calories for 100ml. Which I think you’ll find is significantly less than in 200g of kale.
I know which I’d prefer.
Brewed by Loca Lab, who are new, interesting and innovative, you can buy this directly from them or from someone like Master of Malt. I think I could add this into my cupboard. After all, it’s not as though it’s another bottle of gin.
