Thyme for Gin – Rock Rose Gin Launches Summer Mini-Hamper

Rock Rose Gin is launching a Summer Cocktail Box. The mini-hamper, priced at only £20 (+P&P) from contains just about everything you need to create Rock Rose Lemon Thyme Collins cocktails – perfect for basking in the sun. The Summer Box launches on 1 June 2021.

The box includes the delicious Lemon Thyme Liquid Garnish (which you will use time and time again, if you pardon the pun); two Rock Rose Summer Edition 5cl miniatures; Sugar Sachets, Soda, Tonic Water, and even fresh lemons. There are extra treats as well: two small Mrs Tilly’s Fudge bars.

All you need to add is ice, a sprig of lemon or common thyme, and, of course, sunshine or a warm evening.

This is the perfect gift for birthdays, hosts, anniversaries or just to say ‘hello’ again after this long period of lockdowns.

Rock Rose Summer Edition Gin tasting notes

  • Lemon balm, Lemon Verbena, and Lemon Thyme:  Picked from the Distillery’s own garden, these are the hero botanicals of the summer edition. They give the gin a fresh lemon scent and the lemon thyme delivers a savoury, herbal edge.
  • Clover: Sweet and earthy, bringing a warmth to the gin.
  • Meadowsweet: Light and floral, bringing out a sweet, honey nose in the spirit.

The Rock Rose Lemon Thyme Collins Cocktail Recipe

  • 50mls Rock Rose Summer Edition
  • 40mls lemon juice
  • 25mls sugar syrup
  • A few drops of Lemon Thyme Liquid Garnish (to taste)
