GIN AND BRANDY TASTING
•NUY MASTERY CRAFT GIN•
This gin has tangy, fruity flavours with top notes of granadilla and mango with a hint of citrus. The gin goes perfectly with a wedge of lime and fresh thyme garnish, plenty of ice and finished off with Indian tonic water served as a classic G&T. This gin was paired with a lemon meringue and balance out the tangy citrus flavours of the gin.
NUY’s unique craft gin recipes were carefully created through various experimental batches in order to craft both complex and balanced recipes which cater for all gin lovers. A sugar cane base spirit is used as the blank canvas onto which the recipes are imparted through a combination of maceration and distillation. All botanicals used in the recipes are whole fruit and herbs with no artificial flavouring.
•NUY LIMITED EDITION LEGACY CRAFTED GIN•
This gin is a complex spicy spirit with top notes of ginseng and cassia with a hint of citrus and undertones of aniseed. The gin goes well with a slice of orange, black peppercorns and a couple of sliced cherry tomatoes as garnish, plenty of ice and finished off with Indian tonic water creating a G&T with a slight twist. This gin was paired with a chocolate brownie and candied orange.
The oils from the botanicals added during the distillation process give the gin a clear blue hue which can be seen once water or tonic is added. The final product is an extremely smooth spirit which should be enjoyed neat or as a classic G&T.
•NUY COPPER POTSTILLED BRANDY•
Fruity, fresh with hints of roasted nuts, crushed green herbs, sun dried peaches and spice cake. Long smooth, lingering spicy finish. Double distilled, a combination of 45% three years, 45% five years and 10% 20 years. This was paired with a soft caramel.
Nuy added this unique double pot-stilled brandy to perfectly blend in with their range of quality wines and handcrafted gins. Vat Matured with a bright amber colour.
Visiting Nuy Winery is an experience on its own ans what a great way to spend the afternoon at one of the Cape’s spectacular wine farms, with breathtaking views and a relaxed rural ambience completing the picture.
