Scottish gin brand Boë have become well known for their colourful gins and keeping in line with their motto ‘Stand out from the crowd’ this new release of Apple and Lime Gin does just that!
The new Apple and Lime full strength gin is made in small batches using the award winning Boë Scottish Dry Gin. It has notes of zesty lime nicely balanced with sweet crisp green apple making it a very refreshing serve with hints of spice coming from the Boë Scottish Gin. It is said to have a beautiful aroma with a “tangy” flavour profile matching its bright green hue. The packaging is very eye catching with colourful botanical illustrations and features Boë’s trademark bottle shape.
Carlo Valente, Director at Boë Gin said: “We know that the modern drinker loves to be adventurous with flavours – and this new gin presents the perfect opportunity to get creative.
“We dissected the botanicals that were in our gin to see how we could bind the fruit and spice notes with an unusual flavour note in gin – green apples.”
“After some experimentation, we found that lime citrus was the perfect component to balance the flavours together and top off that stunning green colour. We’ve heard so many times from our consumers that they prefer gin with something other than tonic and this inspired us to create a modern flavour that would complement a range of mixers.”
Boë say that their Apple and Lime Gin can be enjoyed either with lemonade, tonic, in a cocktail or with the mixer and accompaniment of your choice.
It works great as a base to create delicious cocktails including a Green Vesper, a Scottish Breakfast cocktail, a Garden Collins and a twist on the Martini, the Apple-Tini.
