Dr. Squid Gin by Pocketful of Stones Distillery, is a unique addition to the range served from a copper flask engraved with the scenery, wildlife, folklore and history that surrounds the distillery in Penzance, Cornwall. Dr Squid Gin has been a labour of love dating back to the spring of 2018.
On many occasions they almost conceded that it would not be possible, neither the copper flask nor the balancing of the recipe, but it was an idea that was so steadfastly believed in that it could not be let go.
Squid Ink is such a powerful ingredient that only a minimal amount is needed both for the distilling and colour or infusion of the gin. Vanilla was added to the base of the recipe to give a well rounded mouthfeel and perceived sweetness, coupled with sea buckthorn for a tart, fresh fruit finish.
Dr Squid Gin pours black and when mixed with tonic turns a vivid pink. It also makes for a great Gin Mule when poured over crushed ice and ginger beer.
