NOLET’s Silver gin cocktails celebrate modern, fruity, fresh flavors

Does that tonic need a new partner? These NOLET’s Silver gin cocktails are not your father’s spirits. While some gins might have strong piney characteristics, this modern gin is ready to change the conversation. If that bottle of gin has been hidden on the shelf, these fruity, fresh NOLET’s Silver gin cocktails deserve their moment in the sun.

In the past year, many people have explored their cocktail skills. After one too many virtual happy hours, that bottle of rose wasn’t as exciting as it was in the beginning. Instead, the cork was left in the wine bottle and the cocktail shaker was put to work.

Given the opportunity, some people started to explore other liquors. With the rise of modern gins, these options that have more balanced, approachable flavors have seen a surge in popularity. Instead of the vodka that may by subtle in flavor, these modern gins are just as delicious drunk simply or mixed into a cocktail.

With NOLET’S Silver, the gin takes a nuanced approach to its flavors. Since the liquor is related to the Ketel One brand, the similarities to the styles are clear. Floral forward, slightly fruity, this gin begs drinkers to ponder the layers of botanicals and let the flavors linger on the palate.

In some ways, this gin feels as if it has a slightly feminine approach. From the rose florals to the juiciness of the peaches to the sweet yet tart of the raspberries, there is an enticing quality to each pour. In some ways, the bottle invites the drinker to come back time and again to peel back another layer of its intriguing flavor.

Since NOLET’S Gin lends itself to cocktails, the brand has shared a few fruity, fresh libations that showcase the gin’s modern flavors. Which gin cocktail will you try first?
