Black Tomato Gin is really made from black tomatoes. And yes, black tomatoes are a real thing. There’s a very interesting complexity to the tomatoes, which are used along with juniper berries, sea water, and a “secret botanical,” to give this gin its exceptionally unique taste profile.
This is a truly unique gin as you likely haven’t come across one made with black tomatoes before (you may have never sampled actual black tomatoes either). So sample the gin neat first and go from there.
