Description

The Gin Botanist selection 4 pack includes botanicals specially selected to enhance your gin. Whether you’re having a classic ‘London’ gin and tonic or one of many brands and flavours available, this selection gives you the option for multiple tasting enhancements.

To enhance your classic gin and tonic, the best option is to incorporate two or three Juniper Berries, while for a more spiced gin and tonic add a few Cardamom Pods, slightly crushed. If you’re looking for sweeter flavours, you will need to add a “special touch” with Star Anise, which also provides an interesting element with citrus aromas and flavours. But if you prefer a citrus drink, the best option is to use some Orange Peel. The possibilities to enhance your gin are deliciously endless! Set includes 4 botanicals.

Contents:

Juniper Berries
Juniper is a coniferous, evergreen tree native to Europe, the Himalayas, southwestern Asia and North America. It can reach a height of up to 10-15 metres. The simple, spiny, needle like leaves grow in whorls of 3 around the slender twigs and are dark to glaucous green in colour and 1-2cm in length. The male and female flowers grow on different trees, and once pollinated give rise to green, spherical, berry like seed cones which take 18 months to ripen. Once ripe they change colour to purpley-black with a blue waxy coating and are 4–12mm in diameter. (18g).

Orange Peel (Coarse Cut)
Oranges come from an evergreen tree, reputedly native to Southeastern Asia or Indo-China; the trees grow to a height of 6-15 metres. The leaves are elliptical to oval leaves in shape, alternate, dark glossy green in colour and 4-10cm in length. The 5-petalled flowers grow singly or in clustered racemes, they are white in colour, thick and waxy with yellow stamens. The fruits are spherical and are green when unripe, ripening to orange, the skin is tightly dimpled, waxy and 7-12cm in diameter. Particle Size: 6mm. (18g).

Star Anise
Description: Star Anise comes from an evergreen tree, native to China, Indian and Vietnam; it grows to a height of between 8-15 metres. The leaves are alternate, simple, leathery, dark green and obovate with entire margins and 6-12cm in length. The flowers are solitary, bisexual, composed of numerous petals, white to light purple in colour. The flowers give way to distinct star-shaped woody fruits, comprised of 8 separate carpels. Each carpel is hollow and capsule like with a single, brown, ovoid seed contained within. (12g).

Cardamon Pods (green)
Description: Cardamon is an aromatic, tropical, evergreen perennial herb, native to southern India and Sri Lanka that grows to a height of 2–5 metres. The leaves are alternate, linear-lanceolate, dark green on the upper surface, paler glaucous green on the underside and are 40–60cm in length with a pointed tip. The flowering stems are horizontal and creeping and produce 2-lipped flowers alternately along the stem which are yellowish-white to pale violet in colour with magenta markings on the upper petal. The ovoid, triangular fruits are yellowish-green in colour and 1–2cm in length, and contain 12-15 small black seeds. (20g).
