In authentic copper stills, near the Cornish coast, the new artisan distillery Tincture has created a distinctively different gin. A far cry from the famous naval pink gin, whose colour comes from the addition of Angostura Bitters, Tinkture Rose Gin creates its own magical colour: pour a measure of the amber coloured spirit into a glass, add tonic water and as if by alchemy, the drink turns a glorious rosy pink.
Fundamentally the base is a dry London gin, delicately light and accented with citrus, to which notes of coriander and juniper have been added to give depth. Into this Tinkture has distilled the essence taken from hundreds of hand-picked David Austen roses, grown organically on nearby farms. The result is a wonderfully clean, scented and refreshing experience.
The lovely bottle, resembling something secret from a Victorian apothecary, with its glass stopper and metal closure, is inspired, however, by a very contemporary need to recycle. Too beautiful to throw away, it has been designed with a wide mouth to allow it to be reused. Either buy a refill pouch of Tinkture Rose Gin (also available at Burford Garden Company) or save it for some other culinary purpose.
