Black Bridge Distillery – Green Genie Gin Overview

The journey of Green Genie Gin starts with the Black Bridge Distillery, the distillers of this enchanting green tea inspired gin. Black Bridge Distillery is an award-winning family owned distillery based out of St Albans, Hertfordshire. Black Bridge Distillery specialises in creating inspired, small-batch spirits using unique and equally tasty flavour profiles.

Their small batch runs ensures a high quality is maintained throughout their bottle runs, it also ensures that a true attention to detail is given to each of their hand crafted spirits. The end results holds true to this process, in both the bottle, the story and the quality of the spirit which embellishes their hard work.

“Green Genie is a smooth, citrus forward gin, delicately infused with green tea botanicals. Green Genie Gin is a true treat for all gin lovers. “

Green Genie Gin is hand-crafted and uses only the finest 100% natural ingredients, each run consists of less than 100 bottles, all of this ties into the brand ethos and how they represent what true small batch stands for. The gin is slowly distilled from 100% molasses spirit, allowing the perfectly balanced flavour profiles of each of the 12 botanicals to come to light in the final product.

Green Genie Gin utilises a blend of citrus oriented botanicals, such as Sicilian lemon and Seville orange, which gives this gin a beautiful fresh undertone combined with a more earthy green tea finish. Additional botanicals include Juniper, White Korean ginseng, coriander seed, Angelica root, Orris root, Green tea and 4 further botanicals which can only be revealed if the Green Genie commands! The combination and balance of these botanicals is what gives this gin its unique yet delicious flavour profile.

Serving Recommendation

We recommend this in a classic gin and tonic using a premium tonic mixer, garnished with lime and mint. Also works beautifully in a Southside, Green Basil Smash or Elderflower Gin Fizz.

Green Genie Gin

Green Basil Smash

  • 12 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 60ml Green Genie Gin
  • 25ml Lemon Juice
  • 10ml Sugar Syrup
  • Gently muddle basil in shaker with gin, add other ingredients, shake with ice and fine strain into ice filled glass

The Green Basil Smash compliments this gin’s flavour profile perfectly. The fresh and citrussy tones combined with the earthy green tea notes work beautifully with the fresh basil leaves and lemon base of a Basil Smash. Additionally, the Green Genie Elderflower Gin Fizz is a truly magical treat to behold.

Green Genie Gin - Elderflower Fizz

Elderflower Gin Fizz

  • 60ml Green Genie Gin
  • 25ml Lemon Juice
  • 25ml St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • Shake first three ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass (without ice). Top with soda.

Overall

The gin itself has a beautifully complex flavour profile, on opening the bottle you’re greeted with a a fresh scent of botanicals with green tea ringing through. Sampling the gin you’ll be met with a range of fresh and citrus tones combined again with a green tea finish. This is a true gin at 43%, while also truly unique in terms of the flavour profile and botanicals.

Green Genie Gin is a true hand-crafted small batch gin, something which a lot of companies don’t hold true to. From the bottle design through to the brand theme and final product this gin is truly something magical.
