Ginspiration #003 - 5th Gin Fire

Think of "a drink with red fruits" and the first thing that maybe springs to mind is fruit cider - but how about gin?

Distilled in Spain by Catalonia’s Destilleries del Marseme, the 5th Gin range has been created around the four elements; earth, fire, water and air. The gin I am featuring today is Fire.

5th Fire has been infused with a range of soft red fruits such blackberry, blueberry, currant and strawberry.

Although made in the traditional London Dry way, you can see the gin is pink in colour, and the aromas of berries dominates, whilst the palate has notes of strawberry and gooseberry.

There are a couple of different serving options for this gin:

Fever Tree light tonic and raspberries to garnish

Fentimans Rose Lemonade and strawberries, too

Or, as my friend Claire Bell had it served recently, with tonic strawberries and dark chocolate:

I will definitely be on the lookout for this one on my gin journey, minus the chocolate of course! (*)

The gin is available from the usual specialist online gin retailers, and Amazon also

(*) I'm one of the very few people in the world who doesn't like chocolate - bet YOU don't know anyone else! Lol
