There’s a new gin in town — and last week we got a first taste. Brockmans Gin, a new-style, super-premium gin with British roots, debuted in South Florida with an intimate cocktail party at EAST Miami’s Tea Room, hosted by Neil Everitt, co-founder of Brockmans Gin, in attendance.
The gin, which was founded in 2008, boasts eleven natural botanicals sourced from around the world, balancing juniper berries with subtle yet interesting influences of citrus peel, wild blackberries, and blueberries. Also supporting botanicals like licorice, coriander, orris, and cassia bark can also be found.
The smooth blend is delicious neat, but also great in cocktails — a few which we got to try during the event. The Perfect Serve, which was a twist on a classic gin and tonic with pink grapefruit peel and fresh blueberries, really highlighted the blueberry notes in the gin. The Brock 75, a take on the French 75, was made with Brockmans Gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and topped with prosecco. And finally, The Purple Rain, which aside from its fantastic name was a nice twist on an Aviation cocktail, was created with lemon juice, bitter truth violet liqueur, lavender syrup, and an Absinthe rinse.
Now available throughout Miami, make sure to look for Brockmans Gin next time you’re ordering a cocktail.
