If you are not surprise yet, what would you say about seaweed gin?
Seaweed booze may sound a little odd, but long ago seaweed was seen as an essential ingredient in beer and whisky making! It was added in the last minutes of the boil and gave a unique, and great, taste. Back in these times people really enjoyed the flavour – and it turns out they still do.
Another unusual experience is a sip of seaweed gin. Seaweed, as any natural and sustainable ingredient, makes gin more interesting and diverse and gives an unexpectedly nice flavour.
Therefore, after a successful attempt with a seaweed cheese flecked, an owner of a Welsh distillery decided to give seaweed gin a try. He says that it “still smells like a true gin, but has a whiff of the seaside, a ‘salty air’ quality”. Marjoram, tarragon, parsley and thyme are other elements that complement seaweed in the recipe.

Personally, Doctor Seaweed is a fan of the Kelpie Ale.
