Although Casa Salvia Gin has a straightforward flavor that makes it a decent option for a variety of cocktails, I was inspired by the botanicals to create this recipe for a Salvia Fizz. After experimenting with various citrus fruits, I settled on the classic combination of grapefruit and lime. While the more balanced measurement of grapefruit juice is 3/4 oz, I personally enjoyed using a full ounce, as it provides a stronger tartness and grapefruit flavor.

Bottom Line

Since I had no Prior knowledge of the brand and this was my first experience with a gin from Mexico, I wasn’t sure what to expect form Casa Salvia Gin. However, I was quite impressed with its quality. The citrus, mint, and juniper notes are consistently present throughout the tasting experience, and hold their own against other ingredients in cocktails. I would have liked the sage to be more prominent, but the overall flavor still has a pleasant floral and herb quality. One minor issue I had was the inconsistency in the sweetness when drinking this gin neat. Nevertheless, I still recommend Casa Salvia if you’re looking for a reliable gin, and I’m happy to see there is a market for more international gins.

As always, drink responsibly.
