More Product Information
A dessert that dates back to the 1890s, the Peach Melba was first tasted by guests at the Savoy Hotel in London. It was the final course at a dinner honouring the Australian soprano Dame Nellie Melba who was, at the time, performing at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. This vibrant dessert was served on a swan ice sculpture that featured ripe peaches resting on a bed of vanilla ice cream and topped with spun sugar and raspberry sauce. Peach Melba makes up a small part of the history of London, which we always strive to celebrate.
Our Distillers macerated fresh raspberries, freeze-dried strawberries and raspberry leaves for an underlying berry aroma and flavour. Fresh peaches and pureed apricots were then macerated alongside split vanilla pods. Finally the gin was rested on charred peaches for three days to extract rich, fruity notes. Our distillers’ aim with this decadent liquid was to capture the creaminess of the vanilla ice cream, juiciness of the peaches and freshness of the raspberries whilst ensuring a juniper-forward profile that gives gin its name.
For the perfect after dinner tipple, add 50ml Peach Melba Gin Liqueur to a highball glass filled with ice. Then, top with chilled Mediterranean tonic water and garnish with a wedge of lemon, ready to enjoy at the opera or with a spoonful of your favourite dessert
