If you like a splash of flavour to your gin, Boe is the distillery for you...
The Throsk distillery’s Scottish Gin may remain our firm favourite for a traditional taste, however, Boe Gin is renowned for their flavourful brightly coloured concoctions including their famous Violet Gin!
This week, Boe is our Gin of the Week!
THE STORY OF BOE GIN
Boe is an award-winning range of gins which are distilled in the village of Throsk, near Stirling.
Launching their first bottle of gin in 2009, Boë is named after the man who is believed to have first created gin, Franciscus Sylvius who was born Franz de le Boë.
Boë’s first gin was soon joined by their range of popular flavoured releases, including Boë Violet Gin, Boe Scottish Bramble liqueur and Boë Peach and Hibiscus liqueurs and their latest release Boë Passion Gin.
Our selected spirit from the Boë family is their famous Scottish Gin.
Using an old-fashioned Carterhead still system to create their range of gins, Boe’s Scottish Gin was inspired by the original Dutch genever recipe. Combining rare handpicked botanicals and spices, including coriander, cardamom, cubeb berry and cassia bark, Boe’s Scottish Gin is a classic gin with a hint of citrus.
THE BOE GIN AND TONIC PERFECT SERVE
Each distillery has created their own perfect serves which we’ll be sharing across our Summer of Gin so you can enjoy a G&T as the distillers intended!
Citrus, spice and all things nice… that is what Boe’s Scottish Gin is made of! That’s why we reckon it perfectly pairs with Indian tonic and orange to add a refreshing citrus splash...
The Boe Gin & Tonic Recipe:
- 25ml Boe Scottish Gn
- 50ml Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water
- Garnish - Orange Slice
Method: Add cubed ice to the gin glass of your choice and pour over Boe Scottish Gin. Top with Indian tonic water and garnish with a freshly cut slice of orange.
