Inspired by our magical skies, Simmer Gin is a refreshing aromatic gin created in celebration of Shetland's summer twilight, know locally as the Simmer Dim. The long summer days and lasting amber skies at sunset influence the eight botanicals in our recipe including orange peel and liquorice root.
Tasting Notes: The nose opens with strong juniper followed by sweet orange. On the pallet the juniper is reduced and it becomes sweet, very sweet orange and liquorice with a lingering finish.
Serve: 50ml Simmer Gin, Fever-Tree Original, Slice of Orange, Sprig of Rosemary, Serve in rocks glass with plenty of ice.
