A World first.

Yes. You’ve read it correctly. Black Tomato Gin is the world’s first ever tomato Gin. The recipe was created by Leon Meijers and Alfred Sandee. The inspiration and the ingredients came from the location; the love for Spirits came from the heart. The black tomatoes are grown in Sicily; pure seawater from the Oosterschelde is also added to the mix. 

Well, one liked tomatoes the other liked Gin and voilà. What’s more – the funny combination works! Although the complete recipe remains a mystery, we know it includes tomatoes, juniper berries, piment, botanicals and salt water. All the ingredients are processed as separate distillates, before sea water is added. The concentrate is developed with grain alcohol, then cut down to 42.3% ABV. Packed in a nifty black matte bottle, you get a sense of the fact that this product is tremendously well thought out.

Artisan, organic small-batch Gins are all the rage right now, new brands are formed every day, but we haven’t seen something as unique as this in a long time. It stands out. The tomatoes give this bad boy an incredibly fresh feel. The soft, delicate notes hint at a secret ingredient, which we cannot quite pinpoint yet. It works well as a cocktail Spirit, it's up to par on its own. You say tomato, we say to … p-notch Gin.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Black Tomato Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
