Product Information – Ruby Gin

 

 

A flavourful aromatic gin made in a pronounced floral style. Heady scents of rose and lavender blend with the deeper, darker fruity notes of honeybush lifted by the exotic scent of hibiscus.

TASTING NOTES

AROMA

Top notes of rose and citrus on a scented herbaceouslavender background, spiked with sweet spice.
PALATE
Juniper and lavender combine on the mid-palate, encased in Turkish Delight flavours from the pelargonium. Complexity and density provided by the honeybush and spices
FINISH

Deep berry jam and fynbos linger with sweet spice and persistent lavender


BOTANICALS

The Ruby Gin contains  juniper, coriander, angelica root, honeybush, lemon peel, orris root, cassia bark, lavender, elderberry and rose pelargonium


PERFECT SERVE

A gorgeous and hugely popular gin that invites creativity. Ruby challenges you to play. Equally delicious sipped neat on the rocks (like Campari), as a cocktail in a tall glass with muddled fruit and a mixer, or enjoyed with tonic or a dry ginger ale and garnished with citrus and herbs of your choice.

FAVOURITE RECIPE

  1. Pour single or double measure of Ruby Gin over lots of ice (4-6 blocks)
  2. Add equal measure of Tonic (we recommend Fitch & Leedes)
  3. Garnish with slice or two of sweet orange and a sprig of garden thyme.

 

 


Note: Deep South Gins are made only with natural botanicals, including selected roots which prolong the life of colours and aromas. Exposure to bright light heat or oxygen, especially once the bottle is opened, will lead naturally to bottle aging and fading of some of the aromas and flavours over time . Best consumed within 2 months of opening and 4 months of purchase.
