Little Brown Dog Experimental Series Gin: #projectSTOVIES 50cl
Inspired by the Aberdeenshire version of Stovies, a dish created using leftover meat, onions, and potatoes, those cheeky chaps at Little Brown Dog have created this gin expression to celebrate our most Aberdeenshire of meals.
It is more of a nod to the flavours of stovies and its accompaniments rather than a fully flavoured gin. Stovies are often served with Beetroot and Oatcakes, so the added ingredients to this single batch gin include beetroot, oats, neeps (turnip) and carrot.
Meanwhile, the juniper is roasted before the distillation to elevate the richness of the gin. As a result, #projectStovies is herbal gin with gentle warming spice that is "the perfect dram for an Aberdeenshire Winter".
