Black Tomato Gin
Black tomatoes, salt and pepper maybe something you would expect to find in a salad, but with Black Tomato gin you'll also find them making a deliciously unique gin!
Originating in a small Dutch fishing village, Bruinisse, the distillery is set overlooking the Oosterschelde. During the creation of this gin, a few drops of sea water are added. As with food, this not only adds a delicate saltiness, but helps enhance the other flavours in this gin.
As can be expected from its namesake, this is make with Black Tomatoes which originate from Italy. These are macerated, and the fresh tomato juice is then distilled with the other botanicals, (which are kept secret).
The gin itself has a delicious balance between sweet and savoury flavours. There is a touch of sweet, fruity flavours from the tomatoes, a hint of citrus, a touch of perppery warm spice from the juniper as well as a green, herbaceous back note. Overlying this is the faintest hint of smoke, which works perfectly with the tomato flavours.

We love this gin in a classic gin and tonic, but it also works well in the mix (try in a 'Red Snapper' - the gin equivalent of a Bloody Mary cocktail).
Take a large glass filled with ice and add 50ml of the gin. Gently pour over 150 - 200ml of Fever-Tree Mediteranean Tonic and stir gently. To finish, garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
