Saffron Gin

Hi all

I bought a bottle of saffron gin but it was almost £30 a bottle, so took it upon myself and I made my own!

I bought a cheapo bottle of gin as this was a test and simply, in a metal bowel added a half tea-spoon of saffron. Note, it was a cheapie saffron I picked up on my travels but smell and effect after about 3 hours stewing was really good.

Highly recommended.

Goodness, have never heard of Saffron Gin. I guess I shouldn't be surprised and there are so many flavoured Gins & Vodkas.

Although I rarely drink hard liquor (I'm a whiner winer) I'm interested to know how or what do you mix it with?

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Hi Dragnlaw,

Here is link for Saffron gin:

Saffron Gin | Gabriel Boudier, since 1874

I mix it, as normal with tonic but I am sure a good mixer can do other wonders. We had a G&T evening and tasting at mine a long time back and the saffron gin can top, BUT it in some ways demands you like the saffron flavour, but personally I love it!

Will say my home-made cheapo is tasting pretty good !
