JUNIPER is the main botanical in gin. We use the best we can find. The juniper bush grows typically in sandy soil and stands beautiful throughout the winter.
FRESH APPLES – in Denmark we eat apples all year round, also for Christmas. So apples were an easy choice for our Christmas gin. You can use a slice of apple – fresh or dried – as a garnish for your Herbie Gin Christmas G&T.
CINNAMON is a spice obtained from the inner bark of a tree. Cinnamon is used as flavouring in a wide variety of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes and of course traditional Christmas baking. Cinnamon is also a match made in heaven for apples and adds a bit of sweetness to our Herbie Gin Christmas.
NUTMEG is the seed of a dark-leaved evergreen tree. The spice has a distinctive fragrance and a warm slightly sweet taste. The seeds are dried gradually in the sun over a period of six to eight weeks. During this time the nutmeg shrinks away from its hard seed coat until the kernels rattle in their shells when shaken. The shell is then broken with a wooden club and the nutmegs are picked out.
