Tarquin's blackberry gin

Do you love blackberries? Do you love gin? Then I’m just about to become your favourite person EVER.

Because I’ve teamed with my favourite online drinks retailer, 31.DOVER, to give away a bottle of the fruity deliciousness that is Tarquin’s Brilliant British Blackberry Gin. First, Tarquin’s Cornish Gin (Cornwall’s first gin in over a century) is distilled in traditional copper pot stills. Only the purest spirit – the heart – makes it to the bottle, where it’s infused with the juiciest, tastiest blackberries, and diluted with local spring water.

Finally, a touch of local wildflower honey is added for sweetness. 

You get a nose of wild berries, blackberry crumble and sweet spice, followed by a body of summer pudding, crisp juniper, frangipani, then a fruity finish of raspberry sorbet, lemon sherbet and wildflower.

Enjoy your blackberry gin mixed, or poured neat over ice; sounds pretty amazing, right? 

And here’s your chance to win a bottle for yourself, so you can get your very own fruity gin fix. Enter via Rafflecopter, below, and good luck!

  40. Susie Wilkinson - August 20, 2017 reply

    I think neat over ice would be just the job!

  41. With sparkling wine. Gin goes well with sparkling wine (French ’75, anyone?) and although over here Kir usually means crème de cassis and sparkling wine, in France it means any one of various fruit liqueurs (including crème de mûre) with sparkling wine, so I reckon blackberry gin and sparkling wine should go together quite well.

  42. Amber Goddard - August 21, 2017 reply

    With good company (others who appreciate great taste!!!) of slimline tonic, ice & a wedge of lime.
