200 ml Tonic Water (or to taste)
Lime Wedge or Lemon Slice for garnish
Fill Your Glass: Start by filling a highball glass with ice cubes to keep your cocktail chilled.
Pour the Gin: Add 50 ml of Oak Wooded Gin over the ice. The oak notes of the gin will start to unfold with the chill.
Top with Tonic Water: Gently pour tonic water over the gin, filling the glass to your preferred level. The tonic's quinine adds a pleasant bitterness that complements the oak flavors.
Stir Gently: Use a stirrer or a long spoon to gently mix the gin and tonic. This helps to integrate the flavors without diminishing the tonic's effervescence.
Garnish: Garnish with a wedge of lime or a slice of lemon. Squeezing the garnish slightly before adding it to the glass will release the essential oils, adding a fresh, citrus aroma that beautifully contrasts the oaky depth of the gin.
The Wooded Gin & Tonic is blend of tradition and innovation. As you sip this refined twist on a classic, let the oak-infused notes of the gin bring a new dimension to your experience. This cocktail is a perfect choice for savoring the subtleties of a well-crafted spirit, making it a must-try for gin enthusiasts and casual drinkers alike.
