Flavoured Gin | 700ml | 43 % ABV
Six Dogs Blue derives its name from the blue pea flower (Clitoria Ternatea), an antioxidant and alleged aphrodisiac in traditional medicine. As chance would have it, ‘Blue’ was also the name of the smallest dog in our original pack of six.
The infusion of blue pea gives the gin its striking and entirely natural colour, while the alchemy of this unusual botanical is further revealed when the gin is mixed with a good tonic, changing the colour to light pink.
👅 - Tasting notes
Six Dogs Blue embodies the freshness of a classic dry gin with the addition of two infusions that, when combined, were previously unknown in the world of gin: the blue pea flower which provides an earthy ‘cut-grass’ layer as well as the gin’s naturally blue hue; and rose pelargonium which gives our gin its refreshing lightness and slightly floral character.
