Dancing Dragontail Summer Gin

Dancing Dragontail on Flowers.

The Dancing Dragontail is a small understated butterfly native to the Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia, the inspiration for Dancing Dragontail Summer Gin. We chose a light fresh juniper from Kossovo as the base with a kick of aromatic green cardamom and uplifting citrus notes from pink grapefruit. The use of some unusual roots adds complexity and gives the gin a sweet, warm mouth feel.

We like to drink Dancing Dragontail in a lantern lit fairy garden over ice with premium tonic, a twist of lime and a shaving of lemongrass to complement the cardamom.

We start giggling after the first sip and, if you’re anything like us, by the end of the glass you’ll feel like dancing!

Spirit of the Month

Dancing Dragontail: Spirit of the Month at Fortnum and Mason.

We were very proud to launch Dancing Dragontail on 1 May 2017 at Fortnum and Mason. Demand was so high that it sold out in the first week and we had to work round the clock to produce three times as much as planned.

The Label Deserves A Special Shout Out

Our friend Helen Sweeting painted the beautiful watercolour that we used on our Dancing Dragontail label. We said that we wanted a pretty butterfly garden and she has certainly captured the essence of summer in her delicate paintings.
