Croc Rock Gin
From Isle of Cumbrae Distillers
Croc Rock gin celebrates Millport's Crocodile Rock, one of the most recognised symbols of the Isle of Cumbrae for over 100 years. We all love the Croc and felt no botanical could better represent our affection than cacao, the main ingredient in dark chocolate… They are happy to report that none of the calories get transferred.
When the smooth silky taste of chocolate meets the bright zesty notes of orange in a bottle of gin, no two flavours hit it off better, the bittersweet astringency of the cacao complementing the sweet robust orange in a perfect balance.
And finally, they chose stem ginger as their final feature botanical, because crocodiles do have the potential to bite. Cooked slowly in syrup to give a warm richness, fresh citrusy aromas and a slight kick of heat, ginger creates an exotic, sweet and peppery warmth to the finish.
