This unique addition is served from a copper flask engraved with the scenery, wildlife, folklore and history that surrounds the distillery.
This fabulous gin - made with real squid ink - turns bright pink when you mix it with tonic!
Dr Squid Gin has been lovingly made by Pocketful of Stones Distillery down at Long Rock, Penzance. Let's start with saying the obvious; It is so good looking that it can be categorised as sexy!
Squid Ink is such a powerful ingredient that only a minimal amount is needed both for the distilling and colour or infusion of the gin. Vanilla was added to the base of the recipe to give a well-rounded mouthfeel and perceived sweetness, coupled with sea buckthorn for a tart, fresh fruit finish.
The gin is a savoury Mediterranean style gin, from coriander, sea buckthorn and squid ink, a smooth full mouth feel from vanilla and a slight spice, pepper. Dr Squid Gin opens up when tonic is added releasing floral and citrus notes of meadow sweet and lemon.
Dr Squid pours black and when mixed with tonic turns a vivid pink. It also makes for a great Gin Mule when poured over crushed ice and ginger beer.
A little tip here - pour it with the hole at the top - if you pour it with the hole at the bottom it can glub and spill (gasp!) - keep it at the top and its a perfect pour!
