Cuberdon Gin: A hero in sustainability

Sometimes a bottle of booze can really give you the wrong idea. My food-blogging wife went to a press event for the launch of a new cookbook and brought home a bottle of Cuberdon Gin in the giftbag, made by Holy Water Gin. In case you don’t know a Cuberdon: it’s a popular sweet from the region of Ghent, the taste is extremely sweet and fruity. 

At first, I thought the gin would be terribly sweet too, but I was wrong. It’s a very floral gin, the Cuberdon is mainly in the aroma. The gin is made with juniper, coriander, cardamom seeds, Cuberdon, angelica root, orris root, orange peel and lavender.

It’s a nice gin, but this time I can tell much more about the bottle. Since we all have to think a bit more about sustainability, this brand did something extraordinary with their bottle. Minimising their ecological footprint is a primary goal for this brand. The bottle doesn’t have a label glued to the glass, but the info about the gin is printed on a paper label that is hanging loose on the bottle. You can easily remove it and reuse the bottle for something else. It’s a beautiful vintage bottle that looks stunning on any home bar or bar cart. You can reuse it for any other liquid, or transform it into a mood light. You can also reuse the bottle as a candle holder and the stopper will also fit on Champagne bottles. The paper label at last can be reused as a bookmark. 

I tasted the gin neat to explore aroma and taste. Next, I made a delicious Gin & Tonic with Grapefruit & Rosemary tonic by The London Essence. At last, I also mixed up a Gin Sour with freshly squeezed lemon juice and simple syrup. With a good base spirit, you don’t need to do crazy things. Just a basic recipe will give you a nice drink to enjoy.
