The Ultimate Tom Collins Recipe with Snowdonia Spirit Co Lemon Gin

Hello there, dear friends and fellow gin enthusiasts! We’re the passionate team behind Snowdonia Spirit Co, and today, we’re over the moon to guide you through crafting the ultimate Tom Collins recipe using our signature Lemon Gin.

The Journey to the Perfect Sip

Imagine a warm, golden sunset as the backdrop to your perfect evening. What could possibly make it better? A refreshing glass of Tom Collins, of course! But not just any Tom Collins. We’re talking about one that’s been lovingly prepared with our Lemon Gin, distilled with the zestiest natural lemons and the most aromatic juniper. It’s not just a cocktail; it’s an experience, a journey through flavour that starts with a bright citrus aroma and ends with a satisfying, moreish finish.

A Glimpse into History

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s take a moment to appreciate the rich history of the Tom Collins. This cocktail isn’t just a drink; it’s a piece of history, believed to have originated in the mid-19th century. It’s a testament to simplicity and elegance, traditionally made with gin, lemon juice, sugar, and carbonated water. Our Lemon Gin brings a vibrant twist to this classic, infusing it with a burst of lemon that perfectly complements the Tom Collins ingredients.

Why Snowdonia Spirit Co Lemon Gin?

You might wonder, “What makes their Lemon Gin so special for a Tom Collins recipe?” Well, it’s all about the lemons. But not just any lemons. We use the freshest, most succulent natural lemons, blending them with a carefully selected mix of botanicals. This results in a gin that doesn’t just whisper lemon; it sings it, in a chorus harmonized with the subtle yet distinct notes of juniper. It’s this harmony that makes our Lemon Gin the star of the show in a Tom Collins cocktail.

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • Club soda to top off

  3. The Perfect Pour: Strain the mixture into your chilled glass filled with ice, maintaining the effervescence and the crispness of the drink.
  4. Top it Off: Gently top your concoction with club soda. This isn’t just about adding fizz; it’s about creating the perfect balance between the ingredients.
