Inpired by the long summer evenings,they decided to create a refreshing and aromatic gin especially for summer. In Shetland, Simmer Dim is the name for the long days in summer where the sun barely dips below the horizon before soaring high for another day. These lasting amber skies gave us the inspiration for our limited edition Simmer Gin, released for World Gin Day 2016.
Simmer Gin has an ABV of 49% and is made with seven botanicals including orange peel, orris root powder, liquorice root and caraway seeds as well as more customary juniper berries.
Available now in our online shop.
Nose: The nose opens with strong juniper nose and then sweet orange comes through. On the pallet the juniper is reduced and it becomes sweet, very sweet orange and liquorice with a sweet lingering finish.
With tonic there is more juniper on the nose but also an earthiness associated with the liquorice.
On the palate you get orange, some juniper then moving to general sweetness and a very lingering orangeyness.
Seving Suggestions: As always this works great with tonic but for an extra special twist, try with Fevertree Sicilian Lemonade and a sprig of fresh rosemary. You’ll be lounging in a citrus grove in no time!
