The World's Best G&T (And How To Make It)
Originally drunk medicinally by the army of the British East India Company, is there a cocktail more quintessentially British than a G&T? In a nod to the timeless favourite, The International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) has spent months tasting gins from across the globe, hunting for the gin of all gins to marry with age-old partner, tonic. Having searched far and wide, they’ve now found the winner of their very first G&Tcompetition to bring you the world’s ultimate serve.
It may be a simple partnership, but there’s nothing simple about the IWSC’s winning gin, Napue. With roots at the very heart of Finnish nature, Napue is a full bodied spirit with a herbal sweet taste and hints of sea-buckthorn, cranberries, pepper, rye and birch leaves.
Perfectly paired with Fever Tree’s Indian Tonic Water, a blend of botanical oils, spring water and the highest quality quinine from the 'fever trees' of the Eastern Congo, the G&T has a uniquely crisp, mellow and refreshing taste and aroma.
Here’s the award winning recipe, to impress your friends with this extra special take on an old favourite.
· Double shot of Napue gin
· 200ml of Fever Tree tonic
· Fill a tall glass with ice
· Pour in the Napue gin
· Top with Fever Tree tonic
· Garnish with rosemary and cranberries
Napue, 50cl is available from Amazon.co.uk at RRP £31.89, for more information visit www.kyrodistillery.com. Fever Tree, 500ml is available from Tesco at RRP £1.35, for more information visit www.fever-tree.com.

- “As a start-up brand you focus hard on achieving credibility and creating awareness. Winning Gold Outstanding and the Mezcal Trophy provided us with a level of credibility and exposure that we simply could not have achieved on our own. The awards helped secure key listings in Harvery Nichols and Selfridges and certainly played a significant part in opening up dialogue with potential U.S importers and ultimately securing one.
