Four Marys - Forever Fresh Gin (50cl, 40%)
Forever Fresh Gin is the third expression to be released in the series of Four Marys gins by Linlithgow Distillery.
The gin is a refreshing combination of classic botanicals such as juniper and coriander with eucalyptus leaves, peppermint and lemon verbena for a cool, fresh gin that leaves the palate feeling wonderfully clean. The addition of butterfly pea flowers give Forever Fresh its vibrant blue colour and makes it change to a delicate pink when tonic is added.
The Four Marys series are named after Mary Queen of Scots 4 ladies in waiting. Forever Fresh is based on the story of Mary Beaton. Mary Beaton was forever faithful to her Queen until the day she died. However, when the Queen died she changed her life around completely and she became a nun. A colour-changing gin seemed fitting for the transformation in Mary Beaton's life.
