The Oxalis Collins is Dinorwig Distillery's twist on a classic Tom Collins, using ingredients and plants found close to the distillery. Wood sorrel, whose Latin name, Oxalis Stricta, gave them the inspiration this cocktail and grows naturally in abundance in their garden and compliments the woody & fruity notes found in their Blue Slate gin. If you've never tasted wood sorrel before, it's a great thirst quencher with a refreshing lemon-y / sour taste that works well in a Collins.
Top tip: to make wood sorrel syrup, steep wood sorrel leaves in boiling water and leave overnight before adding equal parts sugar to make it into a tasty syrup.
