You are never too old to enjoy an Easter egg! We believe that there is a craft in choosing the perfect egg and we at McQueen have got some recommendations for the perfect easter egg and gin combinations.
Our Five Chilli Gin goes perfectly with any nut-based easter egg. So think Ferrero Rocher Egg or a Reese’s Egg. This chilli and nut combination is a classic south-east Asian flavour, if you are a lover of satay this is the combination for you
Our Black Cherry & Vanilla Gin is dark and mysterious by nature… It is a match made in heaven with any dark chocolate based Easter egg – we went with a Green and Blacks Easter Egg. It was reminiscent of eating one of our favourite retro desserts a Black Forest Gateau.
Our Citron Gin is light and a burst of the summer sun in a glass, we have paired it with another light character the white chocolate Easter Egg – We went for a Milky Bar Egg. If you cannot wait for summer BBQs or sitting on a beach enjoying a limoncello then this is the combination to try!
We cannot wait for the theatre to open up again, until then we will have to keep ourselves entertained by watching our theatrical Colour Changing Gin! We have paired this with a smarties Easter Egg but Mini Eggs would work just as well. The colourful and playful nature work in perfect harmony with the berry undertones in the gin.
