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.
Fragrant lanterns rise.
Through a dancing citrus mist.
Sips of silken dew.
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.
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.
