With its mix of sweet and earthy botanicals, this Gin has a number of garnishes that work incredibly well. In a GnT, try it with a slice of cucumber or a slice of celery for a refreshing drink on those hot sunny days England is renowned for ! Try it with a slice of Orange to bring out those sweet overtones.
Or how about these garnishes, all work really well with our Hexham:
Strawberry and black pepper - garnish with a quartered strawberry and a crack of black pepper.
Grapefruit and basil - garnish with slices of pink grapefruit and fresh basil leaves.
Chilli and coriander - garnish with red or green chillies and fresh coriander leaves.
The signature drink of our Hexham is a delicious twist from the standard GnT. Add your ice to the glass and pour in a double measure of Hexham (life too short etc). To this, add a splash of Fentimans Victorian Cloudy Lemonade or Fevertree Sicillian Lemonade, in the same measures of tonic that you would normally use. Smash a sprig of Thyme in your hands, stir the drink around with it and drop it into the glass. Sit back and enjoy a Hexham 'Fog on the Thyme'.
