This ‘Blackcurrant Gin’ is made from fruit sourced from Edward Thompson’s Ben Hope strain of blackcurrants from his Pixley Berries in Herefordshire and is unusual due to its low sugar content.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/12/2010

Appearance

Deep maroon red.

Aroma

Crème de cassis nose with earthy notes but little gin.

Taste

That crème de cassis nose sets you up for a sweet palate but if anything this intensely fruity liqueur is on the dry side with blackcurrant fruit acidity balancing the small amount of sugar added.

Aftertaste

As the label proclaims, that lack of cloying sugar makes this “recognisably different blackcurrant”.
