As it’s Father’s Day this weekend, I wanted to create a recipe that my own Dad would love. Also as Thomas Dakin was the ‘founding father of gin’, this ice-cream couldn’t be more perfect! Orange and ginger is beautiful with Thomas Dakin gin and with such an easy and quick recipe…this adults only ice-cream is very special!
This is a unique gin that you definitely need to try! A gin steeped in heritage, Thomas Dakin himself was just 25 years old in 1761 when he began distilling his own gin in Warrington. Today, the gin isn’t a recreation of an original recipe, but has botanicals inspired by exotic spices and the unusual addition of horseradish (or “red cole” as it was known in the 18th century).
