· GIN WITH Rowan Berries ·
The rowan berry is a common British cooking ingredient. It is often served along with game dishes or in some jellies as it helps offset some of the gamy qualities of food. This is because it has a bitter taste that can work well with more savory dishes. Upfront the berry is bitter, although as it opens up it delivers a warmer, softer sweetness. As it distills the bitterness will fade away, leaving more of the sweet touches.
