Nelson's Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Gin: The Perfect Summer Sipper

Nelson's Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Gin: The Perfect Summer Sipper - Nelson's Distillery & School

It's that time of year again when everything feels just a little bit brighter, and the essence of summer is in full bloom. What could be a more fitting tribute to this season of abundance than Nelson's Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Gin?

Originally released as our Summer Special Edition back in 2018, this unique gin has been met with such high demand that we've decided to bring it back for another season of enjoyment. Its full-bodied 41% ABV formula carries the same 27-botanical blend as our original London Dry No.7 recipe but with a unique twist of increased pink peppercorn and the natural sweetness of British strawberries.

Nelson's Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Gin fills the senses with a sweet, fruity aroma enriched by the succulent notes of ripe strawberries. The first sip will welcome you with a harmonious blend of sweet and tangy flavours, enhanced by a subtle warmth from the pink peppercorns. This spicy undertone adds a complex layer to the gin's overall profile, culminating in a long-lasting finish that leaves a pleasant, warming sensation on the palate.

While this gin is a delightful treat when savoured neat or on the rocks, it truly shines when incorporated into an indulgent cocktail. Enter the Strawberry Delight - a sumptuous, creamy concoction that takes full advantage of the gin's unique flavour profile.

For the Strawberry Delight Cocktail, you will need:

  • 50ml Nelson's Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Gin
  • 15ml crème de cacao
  • 10ml sugar syrup
  • 50ml of pouring cream
  • Ice
  1. Combine these ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass, garnishing with a fresh slice of strawberry and a sprinkle of pink peppercorns for that added touch of elegance.
