There is no such thing as good luck or bad luck, just gin blessing and lessons – and by winning a Rhapsody Dry Gin in a Christmas Giveaway, then we’ve been blessed with a marvelous private gin lesson the Croatian way.
The Rhapsody Dry Gin from Butterfly Effect Distillery in Samobor is not a symphony at all. It’s a string of separate botanicals stuck together – with a solid paste of craftsmanship and gin love. In this way, the gin actually is a real rhapsody – a melodious artwork composed without a formal structure, however still a masterpiece with a lovely powerful feelings and emotional excitement.
Handcrafted with 16 of the finest Croatian botanicals in a copper still, Rhapsody Dry Gin will tingle your senses into your very own butterfly effect. The gin is extremely beautiful and rich aromatic that are clearly floral dominated by lavender and hibiscus flower, but still with clear notes of star anise, chamomile, cinnamon, coriander, while a more skilled taste buds will find expressions from the prickling elements such as allspices, lemongrass and ginger.
Due to the many expressions from the gin, then it deserves to be drunken neat or perhaps as here diluted light in a fresh cocktail with lemonade and elderflower tonic from @swedishtonic. Served with ice and garnished with a dried lemon wheel.
Thanks @liquid_community @rhapsodydrygin & @pk_gintonic_croatia for drawing our ticket in your giveaway, and hereby giving us the chance to taste this spectacular Rhapsody of a gin with a wondrous pattern of effects for our senses. From our point of view, then it must be this rhapsody or none.
