Introducing 5Nines Wild Citrus Gin

GinFever brings you Wild Citrus Gin. Born out of distiller's desire to create a bold gin which was a little less of a traditional dry style gin, and something which people could drink with mixers other than tonic, or even use as a unique cocktail base. Incredibly versatile, this is a fantastic entry gin for those who are new to gin or don't like tonic. Wild Citrus is delicious paired with Fever-Tree Ginger Ale, or Fever-Tree Elderflower tonic or simply Fever-Tree Soda Water. Especially if you add a mint leaf or two.
