The Dancing Dragontail is a small understated butterfly native to the Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia, the inspiration for Dancing Dragontail Summer Gin. We chose a light fresh juniper from Kossovo as the base with a kick of aromatic green cardamom and uplifting citrus notes from pink grapefruit. The use of some unusual roots adds complexity and gives the gin a sweet, warm mouth feel.
Fragrant lanterns rise
Through a dancing citrus mist
Sips of silken dew.
We like to drink Dancing Dragontail in a lantern lit fairy garden over ice with premium tonic, a twist of lime and a shaving of lemongrass to complement the cardamom.
