Brockmans Gin, the ‘Properly Improper’ super-premium, new style gin is serving up its Autumn line up of traditionally untraditional yet deliciously smooth martini-style cocktails that are easy to make and beautifully complement the gin’s distinctive blend of berry notes and botanicals.
“Brockmans Gin, The Properly Improper Gin, is an incredibly accessible yet complex gin,” commented Lorcan O’Duffy, Brockmans Global Brand Manager. “The combination of dark berries and noble traditions, or to put it simply, the delightful blend of blueberries and blackberries with the traditional gin botanicals of juniper, coriander and citrus produce a liquid that is intensely smooth yet complex enough to mix with the best and beyond.”
This Autumn, Brockmans is highlighting how beautifully the gin mixes in classic martini-style cocktails. Check out the recipes below.
