Live Gin Tasting on the Sally Pepper Show, BBC Radio Derby

Live Gin Tasting on the Sally Pepper Show, BBC Radio Derby

Today we carried out a live, on air tasting and discussed with Sally about pairing artisan gins, tonics and garnishes and how the flavours can be complimented by the right dish.  We had a great time - Thanks Sally, you seemed to enjoy it too!

Listen again to the interview by clicking here and fast forward to 2 hours 18 minutes - we hope you enjoy!

The 4 gins, tonics and dishes which we took with us:

1) Limbeck - New Western Style was paired with Fentimans tonic water, garnished with orange and juniper berries and served with a chicken satay skewer.

2) Nelson's Gin was served with Franklin & Son's Natural Indian tonic water with a lime and kaffir lime leave garnish and complimented by Thai chicken cakes with sweet chilli sauce.

3) Tottering Sharpener was served with Peter Spanton No. 1 London tonic, garnished with lime and served with a chocolate based keylime pie.

4) Love Gin paired with Dr John William Polidori's Indian tonic water, garnished with strawberries and served with a chocolate cup filled with strawberry cream.

All recipes can be found on the BBC Good Food website, except for the chocolate cup.
