If you’re struggling to get into the Christmas spirit this year, Hope Distillery has just the ticket. The artisanal gin mavens have distilled three limited release gins, specially inspired by Christmas past. These Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh gins are perfect for a variety of holiday occasions, each one distinct and deliciously different.
‘Gold’ is literally gold-tinged as a result of gentle aging – it’s infused with lots of festive orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg and almond and you can garnish it with a slice of orange. It’s perfect for those celebratory moments. ‘Frankincense’ has the resin as its signature botanical and as a result has smoky incense notes, with cinnamon, coriander and cumin adding to its unique flavour. Garnish with orange zest for that extra zing and enjoy after a holiday feast. Mysterious myrrh lends this fragrant ‘Myrrh’ gin a Christmas note, which is complemented by cloves, allspice, star anise and nutmeg. Garnish with rosemary and enjoy with your Christmas lunch.
Hope has packaged 200ml of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh in one gorgeous gift pack, available for the festive season only, so visit Hope Distillery and selected bottle stores in Cape Town now to make sure you don’t miss out!
