Traditionally a Mojito is a refreshing cocktail containing white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint leaves. Its birthplace is Havana, Cuba but its origins are debated. Many believe it was created as a medicinal treatment for scurvy in the 1500s, which over time evolved to be the tasty tipple we all know and love.
Flash forward to now, and the Mojito has had a rather exciting makeover. That Boutique-y Gin Company has bottled an alternative from Conker Spirit with all the refreshing Mojito qualities, with gin.
Fresh mint and lime have been added to a classic botanical mix, all distilled with a molasses base-spirit that provides extra smoothness and a touch of rum-like sweetness.
Bright and refreshing, the peppermint jumps out of the glass right away.
Lively juniper and citrus notes follow on shortly, with a touch of peppercorn lingering on the finish.
