The Aviation – Island Gin

The Aviation

It’s world Gin day today and I am going tell you a little story.

On the 31st January 2018, I received a DM from Andi @islandgin and she asked if she could come around and do a taste test with me and of course I said yes!

This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship with a truly inspiring woman and master distiller!

The first cocktail (and there has been a few more since then) was the aviation.

So today, I have recreated one of my favourite cocktails with a sample of the new batch of @islandgin that is going to be released very soon.

I used:
60ml @islandgin
15ml Maraschino
15ml Lemon Juice
15ml Crème de violette

Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until combined. Double strain into your favourite cocktail coupe with the clearest ice you can make. .
Served on my favourite glory tray that I found on a little vintage shopping trip with Andi

Island Gin, Made on Island time, so you can enjoy anytime

It is created on Great Barrier Island AOTEA New Zealand. It is the Southern Hemisphere’s most remote sustainable gin.

Keep on checking back in, because Andi and I are going to be hosting a WORLDWIDE giveaway very soon!
