Belladonna Nightshade has a complex but well balanced flavour profile. The distillation process brings out a juniper forward profile, with subtle floral and citrus notes in the background.
The night shade berries are infused after distillation adding sweet and fruity tart flavours that sit right next to the juniper in a contemporary manner. These fresh, and slightly sweet, flavours linger in the mouth.
The colour reaction of this gin goes from a light violet/lilac colour when poured from the bottle, to a deep and striking pink when tonic is added. The colour reaction is due to the acidic PH levels of the tonic reacting with the more base levels of the infused berries. All natural, no additives, chemicals or colorants added.
Belladonna Night Shade is best enjoyed with a premium indian tonic, or in a large selection of cocktails. A gin sour cocktail is highly recommended, both for appearance and taste.
