You guys know that I am excited for all of the re-openings coming soon right across the territory – some after the hurricane for the first time and some after closure for the summer season. We have much to look forward to in the Territory in the next couple of months. But as well as new venues and resorts coming up – we also have a new product! When most people think of Caribbean products and exports – the obvious answer is rum. But the BVI has been shaking things up recently and BVI Gin has been hitting shelves across the islands, stocked by many of the bars and restaurants. A small batch craft gin, locally distilled right here in the British Virgin Islands. Beautifully packaged, with a hand-illustrated map of the BVI on the bottle, it is an excellent new addition to the local bar scene.
Made with a combination of 11 botanicals including juniper berries, coriander seeds, hibiscus flower, almond, oregano, liquorice root, angelica root, cassia bark, lemon peel, grapefruit oil and grains of paradise – BVI Gin pairs perfectly with any number of cocktail ingredients, but today I’m going to focus on three of them; hibiscus flower, grapefruit oil and lemon peel.
You might remember that I like to keep a well-stocked bar cart – and I love any opportunity for a tasting and some cocktail development. So . . .
