Knock Lofty All Juniper Gin
Knocklofty’s All Juniper Gin is clean and, as you’ve no doubt guessed, forward on the juniper, featuring nothing but the key ingredient that makes gin gin. It carries a bold body with a mouthfeel that takes on a moderately silky texture, and it really does have a great versatility to it. Make a purist’s G&T with a good quality tonic, try it in a martini and let the gin do the talking. Or, if you like to be a little more experimental, try it with some different garnishes: chilli and ginger, grapefruit zest, or perhaps Thai basil—the possibilities are as wild as you want them to be! It’ll also make a great base for other cocktails where the gin provides the rhythm and the other ingredients do the singing; try it in a Negroni and play around with your vermouth or bitter liqueur, or give it a crack in a Martinez or an Aviation. The best part of this gin is that there are no wrong answers. Everything is right. So, so right.
