In is a perfect spirit for warm weather. Bitter and refreshing, nothing is better than a gin and tonic if you need to cool off on a blistering summer’s day. But do not take your gin out of the liqueur cupboard when the temperature drops. It fits as well to the cooler weather. We’ve collected our favorite cold weather cocktail cocktails – recipes.
Gin Cocktails- Tonic + Lemon
Gin beautifully absorbs the winter spices. Our spiced pear collins combine a rich pear puree with a simple rosemary syrup and clove for a woody autumnal drink. Our sweet gin symphony and conquistador gin and tonic with a slight aniseed note both create a festive mood.

Even more warming than a spiced cocktail brings a hot-spiced cocktail. Our Pearman Toddy Pear Gin with Cinnamon is a warm cocktail that will make you comfortable in the dark winter.
