Erika Gin Fizz

L'Erika Gin Fizz apporte une touche plus légère et plus soyeuse aux saveurs percutantes de l'Erika Navy Strength Gin. Pour faire le vôtre, ajoutez 1 blanc d'œuf, 22,5 ml de jus de citron et 45 ml d'Erika Navy Strength Gin dans un shaker et secouez sans glace. Ajouter un bloc de glace et secouer à nouveau. Filtrez votre boisson dans un verre Collins et complétez le reste avec de l'eau gazeuse froide. Il est important que l'eau gazeuse soit très froide car ce cocktail ne contient pas de glace.

Inspiration behind the product

In the 18th century, sailors often came down with scurvy. During that time, a Royal Navy doctor came up with a gin-and-quinine solution to cure their illnesses. However, it soon became apparent that producers were deliberately diluting the gin, and the quality was deteriorating. The sailors discovered a technique to test the strength. When poured onto gunpowder, if the alcohol percentage was 57% or greater, the gunpowder would smoulder, and the gin would be certified “Navy Strength.”

What makes it unique

Erika Spirit’s Navy Strength is a far nicer concoction than the gin given to the 18th-century sailors - although just as strong. Eight different botanicals and homemade honey are distilled into this elixir. The shorter distillation period means that the flavours and aromas retain maximum strength and purity.
