Can You Cook With Crazy Gin?
Well...yes! Crazy Gin can 100% be used for cooking. We love drinking it as much as the next person and we find it works just as well in food as it does in a drink!. Due to our method of distillation (Read more about this here: link) we ensure that our gin has an intensity of flavour that holds its own in dishes. It’s the same as when chefs insist on cooking spices on a low heat to release oils and retain flavour. Check out the instagram handles below to discover some creative examples of how we’ve seen our gin used as a flavoursome companion to your cooking. These aren’t recipes but they are here to inspire you!
Tony Singh (@mctsingh), celebrity chef and restaurateur used our gin to create ginger and bitter chocolates, and white chocolate and fruit. We vacuum distill pomegranate to add a sweetness to our gin, and so it can be paired perfectly with sweet treats such as these!
Crazy Gin has also been used to flavour a gin and rhubarb sorbet! Head Chef of Housel Bay Joseph Fallowfield (@josephfallowfield) recognised the potential of our gin to inspire this beautiful dessert. He’s paired the ginfused sorbet with rose and pistachio nougat, poached rhubarb, gin and rhubarb jelly, meringue and orange blossom cream. Looks and sounds divine!
Next is a concoction of our own! Using Crazy Gin to make cocktail cupcakes. We used our spirit to flavour the batter and the icing, and topped them off with shavings of lime zest and a sprinkling of pomegranate for a fruity pop.
Former Head chef of Pan Asian restaurant Mber London Jon Villar (@jonvillar69) used our Crazy Gin spice blend to cure this lamb bacon. Just look at that sake cured egg! We can’t think of a more delicious brunch - except one paired with a Crazy Gin Red Snapper.
Recipe also includes: Overnight tomatoes, labneh, jujube date ketchup in a bao bun!
Chef @josephfallowfield is back and has cured salmon with our Crazy Gin, which we thinks looks pretty as a picture! He’s paired this with shaved fennel, torched grapefruit and pink grapefruit granita. It’s great to see how he has been able to use our gin for both sweet and savoury dishes, and they both look delectable!
Here you can see Crazy Gin being used to make a marinade for a roast chicken! @mr.jd.moola added a splash of our gin to a knob of butter and strained veg. The end product looks divine! The Crazy Gin marinated chicken has been paired with slow roasted smoked garlic mash and chilli and garlic kale. He said the chicken was hugely flavourful and that he’d actually drink the jus it was that good - his words not ours!
