Daffy's Gin Cocktail Masterclass
- Posted: 10th May 2017
For our next complimentary cocktail masterclass we welcome Daffy’s Gin to Chop House Leith on Thursday 11th May for an evening of gin cocktails.
Scottish gin has seen a real resurgence over the past few years due to the extensive range of botanicals readily available across the country. As a result the amount of quality gins on offer is on the rise so when you come across a stand out you know you’ve found a winner. Daffy’s is definitely one of those!
Daffy is the Goddess of Gin. First written about in the 1700’s, Daffy is the essence of great gin & a lover of life. Four years were spent on an adventure and quest to create a gin like no other, a gin of the finest quality achievable, using the very best botanicals and some new botanicals to gin. The journey started in Northern France using the finest pure wheat grain distilling it in the same manner as malt whisky on an ancient single batch copper pot still. The botanicals that Daffy' steep and distil are a combination of the traditional – juniper, coriander seeds, cassia bark and the new – Lebanese mint and rare variety of lemons. Lebanese mint as a botanical brings and extraordinary freshness to Daffy’s complimenting our other tasting notes of toffee, citrus, spice caramel and fresh mint.
The quality of the base spirit used, along with how long the botanicals are steeped results in a deeply complex and well balanced spirit that is exceptionally good to drink on its own over ice, in cocktails or as a life-changing D&T with fresh mint and lime.
We love a great gin at the Chop House bar and we're sure you'll love the cocktails we've created for this complimentary event. In addition to the 3 delicious cocktails there will be tasty steak & seafood bites from the Chop House charcoal grill to accompany each drink.
