Bloom: An Introduction To Gin For Women
by Priyanka Kara - Sunday August 7, 2011 6:51 am
An intricately designed bottle sits before me, its too pretty to open but like the cat, I am curious as to how chamomile, with its sleep inducing properties, can be infused into a spirit and create a premium gin.
I am pleasantly surprised as my first sip goes down well with the sweet subtlety of chamomile and honeysuckle complimented by the final citrus kick of Pomelo. With its floral notes and citrussy tones it is no wonder that Bloom is fast becoming a favourite amongst those who appreciate a sweeter, more delicate flavour.
“I always loved the smell and soothing qualities of chamomile and knew it would compliment the traditional notes of a good quality gin. I draw inspiration from my daily life – relaxing with chamomile tea and envisaging an English country garden. I hope white spirit lovers around the world will enjoy BLOOM Gin and its natural aromas and flavours.”
The natural botanicals of chamomile, pomelo and honeysuckle, give Bloom Gin its soft, floral notes and feminine appeal thus introducing women who may not be traditional gin drinkers, into the world of gin.
