Heartbreak Gin & Food pairings

When it comes to food pairings, this gin's delicate red fruit notes and gentle tannins make it an ideal companion for traditional pinot noir dishes such as butterflied lamb or crispy skin duck breast, adding an extra layer of sophistication to your dining experience.

Roast lamb, grilled quail and pulled pork are an unbeatable combination with the savoury notes in Heartbreak Gin. Or complement the spice perfectly with crispy duck pancakes, seared tuna, slow roasted beetroot and goats cheese salad, wild mushrooms and root vegetables.
