a 10-botanical bonanza

Mexico is a land of extremes. Its breadth of experience is reflected in its cuisine and was the inspiration behind this recipe. Adnams Head Distiller, John McCarthy, was inspired by a visit to a Tacoria, where the black beans he ordered were so good, he asked what the secret ingredient was. The answer was Avocado Leaves! They added woody notes of liquorice and anise and he was drawn to the different layers of flavour that can be found in this style of cooking. He applied that principle to his botanical selection, picking out flavours and aromas that added complexity and that juxtaposition of fresh, green citrus notes and warming woody spice.

Description

Jardín Mexicano Gin is a complex, juniper-laden 10-botanical bonanza, inspired by Mexican food and cookery. Avocado leaves add subtle notes of anise and liquorice, which is bolstered by layers of warming, woody spice from angelica root, cassia bark and punchy epazote. The use of lime peel, Mexican oregano and coriander adds an underlying citrus freshness to this invigorating gin. It is a real, what grows together, goes together recipe.

How does it taste

We have used more Juniper in this recipe than in any other and with the woody notes of Angelica, it laid down a classic base on which to build. Avocado Leaves provide the dominant flavour and are reminiscent of liquorice and anise. There are also warming notes of cinnamon from Cassia Bark, a punchy woodiness from the Mexican herb, Epazote and a smoky hint of Chipotle Chilli in the background. The addition of Coriander leaf and Mexican Oregano (which is related to Verbena) and Lime Peel created the underlying citrus freshness, much like that found in Mexican salsa.

Mexican gin

This is full of very rich and exhilarating botanicals. One sip reminded us of seaside retreats in the Yucatan peninsula - it was as if we had been transported back. Love gin but this is my favourite in quite some time. Please keep making it!
