One of the wonders of gin is how many different varieties and flavours are available. Whether you like your gin in the classic London Dry style, or you want something sweet and fruity, or you prefer a gin with a citrus character, you can find the perfect gin for you. One brand that's doing exciting things for gin is the Spanish brand 5th Gin. They produce a range of different gins named after different elements, each of which has a different flavour profile. We've paired up the unique 5th Gin gins with matching tonic waters from our store to create perfectly matched gin & tonic water sets.
Gin & Tonic set no1: 5th Gin Fire gin & Fever Tree Indian tonic water
5th Gin Fire is a rich, berry-flavoured gin. Using a classic London Dry gin as a base, flavours of red berries are added to create a slightly sweet and fruity gin which still retains its essential dry character. The red berry flavour of the gin is indicated by its attractive pink colour, which looks fantastic both in the bottle and in the glass.
We've chosen to pair 5th Gin Fire with Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water. Fever Tree has become the go-to choice for gin fans both in Spain and in the UK, where the brand originates. The low levels of sugar in Fever Tree mean that the tonic water doesn't overwhelm the fine and subtle flavours in your gin – rather, the tonic water provides a somewhat neutral base from which your gin can really shine. The low sugar tonic water and the slightly sweet berry gin mix to create a Gin & Tonic which is carefully balanced with fruity notes and a refreshing character.
Gin & Tonic set no2: 5th Gin Earth & Fever Tree Indian tonic water
The second 5th Gin & Tonic Water set we have in our store is the pairing of 5th Gin Earth and Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic. The 5th Gin Earth is a zingy, citrusy gin which is perfect for those who love their gins to be lemony. The combination of juniper and citrus is a classic for a reason – the tart juniper and the sharp lemon complement each other perfectly.
Once again, we've gone with Fever Tree tonic water for a pairing that's low on sweetness and high on sharpness. If you're always squeezing an extra lime into your gin & tonic water and wishing it could be a bit more zingy, then this is the combination for you!
Gin & Tonic set no3: 5th Gin Water & Thomas Henry Elderflower tonic water
Finally, our third gin & tonic water set on offer is 5th Gin water and Thomas Henry Elderflower tonic water. 5th Gin Water is refreshing and light, with floral notes reminiscent of a summer meadow. To match this gin, we've chosen the rather unusual elderflower tonic water by Thomas Henry. The elderflower flavours match with the floral notes of the gin for a rich, perfume taste which will appeal to lovers of botanical flavours.
