Apples and Juniper. Cider and Gin. Never before have these two met in this way. When, thanks to our Swan Valley compadres, Funk Cider, we were presented with an abundance of delicious WA apple cider, we promptly used it to create an eminently delicious base for our gin. We then drew on a classic London dry botanical recipe to create our Cider Gin.
Fresh, bright and yet dry, pair this with StrangeLove Tonic No.8 and garnish with fresh apple and lemon thyme to create a perfect serve.
In 1941, the Moscow Mule cocktail emerged from New York’s Chatham Hotel basement, as a delicious answer to an excess of ginger beer and vodka. In 2020, our Cider Gin was born in response to an overabundance of cider. What better way to showcase this collaboration, than with a twist on a modern classic.
