G & Tea with First Rate Gin

There’s blossom on the trees and green shoots in the ground, and we’re thinking of heading outside. The first signs of spring draw us into the garden and inspire a desire for botanical flavours.

Aromatic herbs and spices mix seamlessly with hints of citrus peel in Adnams First Rate Gin. This combination of flavours makes it the ideal selection for a G & Tea cocktail. A refreshing and light cocktail, its clean citrus qualities and the tea’s cleansing astringency are boosted by First Rate’s complex characteristics.
