RECIPE

Gin is enjoying a remarkable growth in popularity; 2018 was another record year for British gin production with exports exceeding £567 million.

British gin exports have more than doubled since 2008, with our gin manufacturers dominating the EU market and with gin sales growing rapidly in the USA and the Far East.

The Gin Guild has identified around 280 active gin distilleries across Britain and over 860 UK gin brands!

With so many gin brands to choose from why not try something different this weekend?

Here are five of our favourite tipples.

HENDRICK’S GIN
Infused with the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers. Distilled in Scotland

TREVETHAN CORNISH GIN
Bold in flavour with subtle citrus and floral notes. Includes botanicals sourced from our the hedgerows in the Cornish countryside.

OPIHR ORIENTAL SPICED GIN
Made in the oldest distillery in England, where the botanicals are married with fine English spirit to produce an exotic oriental spiced gin.

BARRA ATLANTIC GIN
The spirit of Barra people inspires this unique gin. The main botanical, carrageen seaweed, is collected wild on the shores of the Isle of Barra.

MASONS DRY YORKSHIRE GIN
Delicately soft juniper and lavender mix with fresh lime and coriander notes for a sweet, subtle flavour and a slightly dry finish.

Brie with Redcurrant Jelly

Made in Somerset, according to traditional French methods, Somerset brie is considered by many to be as fine as French brie, with its straw colour and creamy tangy flavour. Serve it coated in breadcrumbs, as a really simple, light lunch – delicious!

Somerset brie 150g (5oz)
Egg 1, beaten
Fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs 50g (2oz)
Butter 25g (1oz)
Vegetable oil 1 tbsp
Redcurrant jelly 2 tbsp
Water 1 tbsp
Curly endive lettuce to serve
Redcurrants to garnish

1 Cut the cheese into four equal-sized slices. Dip in the beaten egg and coat in the breadcrumbs.

2 Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan and fry the cheese slices for about 10 seconds on each side, until the breadcrumbs are crispy and golden. Drain on kitchen paper.

3 Meanwhile, put the redcurrant jelly and 1 tbsp of water in a saucepan and heat gently until the jelly melts.

4 Place each cheese slice on a bed of lettuce and drizzle with redcurrant sauce. Garnish with the redcurrants and serve immediately.

Cook’s tip
Ensure the cheese is well chilled, otherwise it may melt before the breadcrumbs are crispy.
