Products from Black Tomato Gin
Created at the Kampen Distillery in Holland in 2014, this is the first gin to use black tomatoes and it gives the spirit quite an unusual flavour. The black tomatoes come from Sicily but the purified salt water and know-how are pure Dutch. The tomatoes are macerated with neutral spirit, filtered and then distilled in a copper pot. The finished gin is salty-sweet with a subtle flavour of tomatoes with a hint of smoke, juniper and citrus. It is presented in an unusual short bottle with a matte black finish.
Interestingly this gin could also have health benefits: black tomatoes have a high concentration of anthocyanin which is believed to help with diabetes, obesity and cancer.
