SEEN Reviews Bulldog Gin: In Praise of the Dessert Cocktail

It can hardly have escaped your notice that everywhere you look in London, Gin in all its forms is being celebrated. It’s such a British drink, yet the way it’s being combined with exotic botanicals, tinctures and garnishes only salutes the genius and inventiveness of London’s mixologists.

It can hardly have escaped your notice that everywhere you look in London, Gin in all its forms is being celebrated. It’s such a British drink, yet the way it’s being combined with exotic botanicals, tinctures and garnishes only salutes the genius and inventiveness of London’s mixologists.

SEEN has had the delight of sampling Bulldog Gin, and is pleased to report that it has a clean, dry and clear flavour with none of that bitter aftertaste you get with inferior brands. You might like to try this recipe at the award-winning Dry Martini Cocktail Bar, which opened last year at The Meliá White House, under the auspices of the renowned Javier de las Muelas.

Ask for Tonico N2, a heady combination of Bulldog Gin, Zara Lemon Soda and Lavender Tincture. As pretty as a picture, this is being promoted as a dessert in itself. SEEN adores desserts in all their forms, and sometimes you just want something light to finish off a lovely meal. SEEN will certainly be indulging. And if you haven’t yet gone, The Melía White House is a beautiful 30s building in Regent’s Park and is worth a visit in itself.

Where better then to honour Scotland’s greatest poet than at The Gallery in West Hampstead, which has become renowned for its dual fascinations – whisky and beer.
