Yes, the tasting of gin and tonics is fashionable nowadays and not only in bars and restaurants, but at numerous gin and tonic tastings with their respective pairings to enjoy a full evening. We've seen it at events like Madrid Fusion and restaurants of top chefs like Elena Arzak.

An example to pair perfectly the gin and tonic are hamburgers. Nobody would say it before, but now this trend coming from United States joins the tasting of burgers with gins of various types and brands.

Gourmet Tonics, explosion of flavours

 TAGS:Today, the traditional tonic has been passed towards more sophisticated gourmet type who are having an excellent place in the market.

These new tonics are artisan elaboration, offering new tastes such as quinine, flowers, fruits like apples and other spices such as vanilla that brings a light touch to the palate.

One of the biggest differences with the classical tonic is that they haven't got as much sugar. Some have even incorporated some alcohol and an extra natural quinine taste imported from South American countries offering a high quality.

Thanks to this innovation, they bring diversity in tonic when it comes to mix it. For example, gourmet gin and tonic is now different with many more flavours, sweeter and tastier, by the amount of spices and mixtures of ingredients that brings to the gin.

Gin Tonic, more than one

 TAGS:

The Gin and Tonic (or gin-tonic, as you prefer) is one of the world's most popular cocktails. And like all great cocktails, there is not just one way to prepare it, but everyone has their own idea of the perfect gin and tonic, and that explains the large number of variations of this drink.

We start with the Gin: gin is probably one of the spirits which are more appreciated with great differences from brand to brand. If vodka is valued for its purity, or whisky for its elegance, the most important in gin is the personal touch of each master distiller, with a mixture of flavouring ingredients (called botanicals), each one contributes in a personal way which are the best kept secret of every distillery.
