Serving Recommendation

Macaronesian Gin works extremely well with the basics, due to its smoothness and light and refreshing taste this can also be enjoyed neat over ice. However, we found this gin also works extremely well with some Premium Indian Tonic Water and citrusy garnishing which will really bring this gin to life.

  • 50ml Macaronesian White Gin
  • 150-200ml Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water
  • Freshly cut orange and lemon twists

Overall

Macaronesian Gin is a Canary Island wonder, its highly refreshing and citrusy mineral taste makes this gin truly unique and enjoyable.
