Scottish distillers Brewdog Distilling has extended their Lone Wolf line of gins with a new Peach & Passionfruit expression.
Loaded with mouth-watering tropical notes, the new expression brings together flavours of peach, passionfruit and yuzu, while still retaining a reassuring Juniper bite.
“Launching a Peach & Passionfruit gin might seem a bit of a curve-ball for LoneWolf as this flavour combination takes our classic London Dry in a whole new direction. It came about from the success of our LoneWolf 12 Gins of Christmas advent calendar which included a white peach gin,” explained Steven Kersley, Head of Distilling at BrewDog Distilling Co.
“Feedback on the peach was really positive,” he continued, “so we decided to play around with complementary flavours, finding that passionfruit added bold tropical notes and yuzu really dialled up the citrus bite alongside grapefruit and lemon peel. These all sit alongside the synonymous juniper notes of LoneWolf gin.”
The sweetness of peach provides a surprisingly strong pairing with juniper whilst the tropical complexity of passionfruit builds another intriguing layer into the gin. The final addition of sharp yuzu fruit, a hybrid of lemon and mandarin, provides a zesty hit that, joined with grapefruit and lemon peel.
LoneWolf Peach & Passionfruit gin is made from grain to glass, in the tropical frontiers of Aberdeen. The result is a serious summer crowd-pleaser, which Kersley believes is best served with tonic and a slice of fresh peach.
