Recipes. Tips. Tricks.
Every gin has its own flavour profile and your choice of garnish can make or break your gin and tonic. Garnishes typically either match and harmonise with a gin's key flavours, or contrast and balance them. For example, Boodles Gin includes no citrus botanicals in the distillation in anticipation of being served with a lemon garnish. We also know that you don't always have a fridge full of exotic garnishes, so we've given accessible options and two suggestions where we can, based on our tastings and the distiller's suggested 'perfect serve'.
Ultimately there is no 'correct' choice of garnish or 'perfect serve' and it comes down to your own preferences, so take this guide as a starting point and the beginning of your experiments on how to serve each gin!
