Boë Passion Fruit Gin Review

This is a beautiful new Flavoured Gin, from Boe Gin, in Scotland. And this is all part of their big summer marketing campaign, in the summer of 2019, BoeUsAKiss.

Is this one of the Best New Flavoured Gins this year?!

Well it certainly could be!!


First off, let's get the elephant in the room out of the way. How do you pronounce Boe Gin?!

Well, simply, the Boe Gin pronunciation is as in BOW.

ABOUT THE GIN

Boë Passion Fruit Gin is a Passion Fruit flavoured Gin which uses the Boë Classic Gin as its base, then infused with fresh Passion Fruit flavour to create a deep and vibrant flavoured Gin. Boë comes out of the Throsk, near Stirling in Scotland and is distilled with 13 Botanicals then infused with a lovely Passion Fruit Flavour. The Distillery is an old Navy Weapons Store and they originally launched in 2016, with this Passion Fruit Gin coming to market in 2019. Their most popular Gin to date is their Violet Gin. Not to be confused with a Parma Violet Gin Liqueur which can be sickly sweet.


Boe Passion Gin Botanicals

  • Juniper

  • Coriander

  • Angelica

  • Orris

  • Cassia

  • Grains of Paradise

  • Orange & Lemon Peel

  • Cardamom

  • Liquorice

  • Almonds

  • Cubeb Berry

  • Then obviously the Passion Fruit Flavouring


AROMA & TASTE

The Gin itself is a really fruity Gin. Upfront I don’t get any Juniper on the nose, just vibrant Passion Fruit. However upon tasting it is a wonderfully balanced Gin with a mild Juniper and Pepper finish to make sure the Gin is not sickly sweet. You get good hints of orange Peel. I would say its quite a smooth Gin and quite a vicious Gin. Not thick as in like a Liqueur, but it does cling tot the glass.



WHAT TONIC WATER SHOULD YOU DRINK WITH BOË PASSION FRUIT GIN?


Well in my tastings and in my opinion, these are my favourites

- Fever Tree Mediterranean

- Fever Tree Elderflower

- Double Dutch Pomegranate & Basil

- Double Dutch Cucumber & Watermelon

- Franklin & Sons Rosemary & Black Olive


But my out and out favourite is undoubtedly, Lamb & Watt Hibiscus Tonic Water.

WOW. What a drink!!!
