Description of the Seaweed Irish Gin ...
The Maritime Gin is an infusion of core botanicals with 5 different types of seaweed, all locally sourced. Some of the botanicals are dried and others blast chilled, with the more delicate placed in Méabh’s vapour tray. Some of the ingredients are so unusual, harvesting can only take place when there is a full moon, with the foraging at times extremely hazardous, as the tide means everything.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
Nose - "Fresh Juniper with spice and citrus."
Palate - "Rich and dry with upfront fresh Juniper and hints of Turkish delight and underlying peppered citrus."
Finish - "Lively to the end, with something different every time. An Excellent gin, with none other to compare with! Not that I have tried, anyway."
Perfect Serve - 1 part Seaweed Gin / Glass filled with ice / Squeezed Lime with a slice of Orange / Pepper / Topped up with a premium neutral Tonic.
