Zymurgorium Extra Io's Footsteps Sweet Violet Gin Liqueur 50cl
A sweetly crafted violet gin liqueur made with Gin from Manchester's Original artisan micro-distillery, Zymurgorium. Made with sweet violets, Zymurgorium Sweet Violet Gin tastes just like the parma violet sweets of your youth.
Sweet Violets supposedly were a gift from Zeus the king of the Greek pantheon as a comfort to Io for whom he loved but had to turn into a heifer to save her from Heras wrath!
Sweet Violets are a beautiful find and have a very unique sweet pastelly taste and a strong violet scent. Zymurgorium Violet has an incredible parma violet flavour with a good gin presence; it manages to avoid the tendency towards a syrup like viscosity that many gin liqueurs have. As a drink it can be used exactly like Creme de Violette it is also equally as good on it's own, with lemonade, mixed with ice cream or in baking!
Made using gin made from British juniper and over 20 other botanicals.
