Some days are better than other days. And the day you stumble across Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur is the best day of all. This remarkably bizarre product comes from Firebox, that London-based online retailer. And here we’ve got an England-distilled gin liqueur that’s sprinkled with real, edible pieces of silver. It’s like Goldschläger’s silver-y, even weirder counterpart.
According to the brand, “many unicorns were harmed in the making of this beverage.”
Now, here are some fanciful tasting notes:
Nose: Fragrant juniper rises from the glass alongside Curaçao orange and crisp lemon. Bruised mint leaves and fresh lemongrass brings herby freshness to the nose.
Palate: Big bundles of candied orange peels, flying saucer sweeties and a hint of maple syrup. Touches of pine-y juniper berries and cardamom introduce elements of spices.
Finish: Sweet, juicy orange freshness goes on and on throughout the finish.
A bottle runs about $62, which is a small price to pay for unicorn tears. But a large price to pay for silver-laced gin liqueur.
