Oh, Brockmans, how I love thee ❤️. I was never a G&T fan until I discovered Brockmans across the pond visiting some friends. Gin is like our craft beer here in the US, it has taken off and each Gin has a completely different profile/botanicals unlike anything we experience stateside. However, I’ve noticed more unique gins appearing in the NH State Liquor Store lately 🙏.
Brockmans Gin has hints of grapefruit and blackberry (it smells so amazing👃). We typically add a orange peel and blackberries to the cocktail because it adds an extra hint of Brockmans’ botanics and we’ve learned that garnishes are key to great cocktail (i.e. rose petals and English cucumbers for Hendricks Gin, berries with Eden Mill Love).
I think the other secret to a great G&T is tonic. Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water, has been our go-to and has great foral notes perfect for the grapefruit and blackberry notes in Brockmans. Fever Tree has some other incredible tonics (i.e Rose Hips, Elderflower) and I would definitely recommend you try their tonics because they’re pretty delicious.
