For those who are partial to dipping a mallow-tipped fork into the crackling open flame, this is the tipple for you as the nights draw in.
Whilst distilling a toasted marshmallow might seem like a brilliant idea, capturing the sweet, buttery essence of this sticky treat in a gin wasn’t quite that simple. Never being one to give up, our Ginnovations Manager Ciarán explored other techniques to achieve the nutty, caramel taste he was looking for. He stumbled across a method often employed by Heston Blumenthal when creating his culinary masterpieces: the Maillard reaction. As he caramelised brioche, Ciarán was able to create a stock that replicated the distinct flavour of a toasted marshmallow. Using the stock and macerating botanicals such as vanilla, pan-toasted oats and fluffy, roasted croissants, Ciarán vapour-infused the liquid with orange peel, creating a perfectly sweet and warming gin liqueur to enjoy this festive period.
For the ideal toasty tipple in the winter months, simply add 50ml Toasted Marshmallow Gin Liqueur to your favourite highball glass. Then top it with soda water and finish with an orange twist as your garnish
The Nose: Caramelised vanilla and candied orange peel.
The Palate: Sweet juniper, viscous vanilla and a light warming spice.
The Finish: A soft nuttiness, leading to a hint of toasted spices and light orange peel.
