Chastity alcohol-free gin with seduction
With the Club Soda mindful drinking festival on in Glasgow this weekend, we thought we would try an alcohol-free gin. Would it be as flavoursome as real gin? Only one way to find out, crack open the bottle!
There are two types of Chastity alcohol-free gin: Temptation and Seduction. We were trying out the Seduction…with chastity belt!
This would be brilliant as a present for a girls’ night out, there’s a definite hen night joke there with not only the name but the chastity belt as well.
So to the gin! A colour like Hubba Bubba and a sweet rose smell, almost like rose Turkish Delight, which is no bad thing as I ❤️ them.
Tasting it straight it is sweet and does taste like gin. Mr Foodie grabbed a glass thinking I was having a full-blown boozy gin. He didn’t notice the difference (well he thought I’d added tonic). A London dry style gin, which means the taste is led by the juniper berry. It a dry gin and is both flowery and aromatic.
The other ingredients include coriander, liquorice and angelica as well as the heady notes of rose petals and hibiscus.
I failed completely as a gin aficionado and only had soda water in the house, however, mixing the Chastity alcohol-free gin with soda was refreshing.
More like a fancy cocktail than a straight boring G&T. This would be perfect mixed with some soda for a night with the girls, movie night, pre-club drinks or any occasion where something a bit different is needed.
I don’t quite think that Chastity Seduction seduced me into thinking it was alcohol-free. Just not enough of that Juniper kick for me. However, it was a refreshing drink either on its own or mixed with soda. If you aren’t drinking, don’t drink or being the designated driver for the night and want to drink something that a bit better than a gazillion glasses of water or soft drink then I could see that this would be a good addition to the repertoire of drinks.
