According to Brockmans Gin, when love is in the air, a cocktail should be in your glass. The darkly seductive Gin, famed for its blueberry and blackberry notes, has unleashed two glorious cocktails that ring with romance in both taste and color just in time for Valentine’s Day.
“These uniquely romantic cocktails are the perfect choice to celebrate Valentine’s Day,” said Bob Fowkes, Marketing Director and co-Founder of Brockmans Gin. “Brockmans’ signature taste is created with a unique blend of botanicals including blackberries, blueberries, coriander, bitter-sweet orange peel and juniper berries. This combination of botanicals creates a gin that is so smooth it can be enjoyed on its own over ice or as the primary ingredient in a range of classic and contemporary cocktails.”
Brockmans Gin was recently awarded Gold Medals in three prestigious international competitions including the inaugural Global Spirits Awards, the 2017 SIP awards and the 2017 International Craft Spirits Awards.
Brockmans Gin is a super-premium, new style gin, which is distilled in traditional copper stills, and balances a unique combination of traditional gin aromas, citrus, coriander and top notes of blueberries and blackberries to provide a refreshingly new Gin taste experience. Made in the United Kingdom, Brockmans is now available in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.
Here are the two cocktails recipes:

According to Brockmans: “Brockmans is an independent English gin company set up by the founding partners, Neil Everitt and Bob Fowkes together with 2 other friends. With over 60 years combined experience in the drinks industry and a wealth of knowledge in gin distillation, they set out to write a new chapter in this famous English spirit’s history.

Loved by gin drinkers and non-gin drinkers alike, it now has countless prestigious awards to its name. It is the gin of note.”
