A Gin Cocktail from Jin Talog
Our Talogroni tastes best on a winter night, when the rain is lashing at the window, our wellies are drying in the porch after a long day, and the room is lit by the crackling light of the open fire. The juniper tones of Jin Talog work well in a Negroni, as our gin more than holds its own when competing with the strong tones and flavours of Campari and Vermouth. The result is a complex mix of bitters, clean juniper that cuts through, and sweetness, set off by a twist of orange peel – we sear ours on the Aga, but this isn’t compulsory.
We love the jewel-like red tones of a Talogroni, elevated by a slice of orange that also feels rather Christmassy to us. Its almost viscous texture gives us a feeling of warmth and indulgence. A Talogroni in July would be unthinkable.
