Copper Head- the alchemist’s Gin Set
Copperhead London Dry, I have positioned it in the grey area on the grid C3.
This is because it picks up on all four major flavour profiles in terms of its taste. The juniper and orange zest flavours are in balance which gives a slight sweetness in the finish.The over all effect is one of elegance, ie no one thing overpowering another.
This is a great party piece set. An Alchemist definition is ‘the practice of any seemingly magical process of transforming or combining elements into something new’.
This Gin Set is a lot of fun!
With this gin, if you get standard tonic water and ice with the copperhead gin, and a slice of lemon, you get a superb classic gin and tonic. That is version one.
Version two, you get the same measure of gin but add one drop of one of the bitters in the set, and then repeat the ice, lemon and tonic.you get a completely different tasting gin and tonic. Version 3 and 4 are by using the other two bitters.
That’s four different drinks. Now change the tonic water, say a Fevertree Mediterranean tonic water and repeat the same process , that gives you a total of 8 combinations! Now try with say an Elderflower tonic water that gives you a total of 12 combinations. how much fun is that. One bottle of gin three bitters 12 different serves.
