Enjoy Lower alcohol serves from The Cotswolds Distillery this Ginuary

If you are looking for a low alcohol alternative to enjoy with family at home during January then why not try Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence. Oliver Morris, Head Mixologist at The Cotswolds Distillery has created four Cotswold Dry Gin Essence cocktails, perfect for those mindful drinkers looking to cut down on their weekly units.

The Cotswolds Distillery designed Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence to reduce the amount of alcohol required in a G&T and gin-based cocktails, whilst at the same time retaining the intensity of flavour. It is made by using ten times the botanical concentration of their award-winning Cotswolds Dry Gin which results in a huge amount of flavour per unit of alcohol. Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence is so rich in botanical character that just 5 ml is needed for a full flavour G&T, which has 1/10th of the alcohol of the usual Cotswolds signature serve.

The recommended amount for one Gin Essence serve is five full pipette drops of gin, 5 ml (a teaspoon). Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence contains 14 calories per 5 ml serve and just 0.23 units of alcohol.
