Spice Island is our newest and most exciting gin. Although it is a typical dry gin at heart, it has been gently infused with the characteristic spices of Zanzibar to create an uplifting, heady and complex gin. This versatile gin is delicious as a straight G&T with Indian Tonic garnished with grapefruit. Add a splash of cranberry juice for our personal favourite: Zanzibar Sunset. Or make a warming Gin Hot Toddy (see our recipes page) to see you through a cold winter.
Spice Island is available in 750ml only and is in its pre-release packaging (and only available from the distillery or online)
Gin Style: Dry style, spice
Suited to: Enjoy neat as a sipping gin, or as a G&T with Indian tonic & garnished with grapefruit. Wonderful with a dash of berry juice (cranberry). Take to spicy side with ginger ale or ginger beer, and garnish with cinnamon, star anise, orange or grapefruit.

Note: Deep South Gins are made only with natural botanicals, including selected roots which prolong the life of colours and aromas. Exposure to bright light heat or oxygen, especially once the bottle is opened, will lead naturally to bottle aging and fading of some of the aromas and flavours over time . Best consumed within 2 months of opening and 4 months of purchase.
