46% ABV: Cotswolds Gin Essence
Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence is a full strength gin designed to reduce the amount of product and thus alcohol required in a G&T whilst at the same time retaining the intensity of flavour. It is made using ten times the botanical concentration of their award-winning Cotswolds Dry Gin, which is already ten times more botanically intense than most premium gins. The result is a lighter and deliciously refreshing gin, with all the taste and 90% less alcohol than the standard 50 ml serve.

Raspberry and Elderflower Cooler
5ml (5 pipettes) Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence | 15ml Elderflower Cordial | 7.5ml Lime Juice | 8 Raspberries | Kombucha or Soda

Muddle raspberries in a rocks glass, add ice and the rest of the ingredients. Top up with kombucha or soda water and stir. Garnish with raspberry and mint leaves.
