2. Taste and serve

Deliciously fresh and sophisticatedly dry.

Mary's natural botanicals give an aroma of freshly cut herbs and zesty citrus. The light touch of alcohol brings a complex depth allowing the juniper and angelica root to shine alongside basil and thyme. As the flavour evolves you are left with green pine, coriander seed and a hint of sage with a long, dry finish.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Delicate green tea with slight haze from the all natural botanicals.

Aroma: Bright, zesty herbs with a touch of fresh citrus.

Taste: Green! An incredibly natural flavour of culinary herbs with complex depth. A suggestion of dry vermouth, juniper and a hint of alcohol combine to become a resinous, dry martini style product.

Finish: Rosemary and citrus linger for a long time, aided by the light touch of alcohol for a sophisticated finish.

Mary's taste is designed to go with tonic. But there are no rules. Try it with soda for a lighter drink, or any of your other favourite mixes. 

We prefer a mix of 1 part Mary, to 2 parts tonic with lots of ice and garnished with cucumber & lemon thyme. 

But on other days we change up our garnish to something savoury like sage and black pepper, or something citrusy like orange. 

We're not fussed, drinking should be easy, so whatever you do, just make sure you do you — and garnish as your mood takes you.

3. What's in it and how's it made

Information about Mary and how it's made.

Mary is a deliciously fresh, sophisticatedly dry, 6% ABV botanical blend.

To make Mary we take 7 responsibly sourced distilled botanical essences (basil, thyme, sage, coriander seed, angelica root, juniper, pine) and blend them with a light touch of alcohol in England.

Mary is vegan, gluten free, low calorie, has no artificial flavours and is free from any sweeteners, sugars, carbs or allergens.

Rest assured, Mary is a very very light drink.

It only has 6% alcohol, to put that in perspective, a standard gin is about 40% alcohol.

When you mix Mary with tonic or soda, it will end up being about 1.5-2% alcohol which is far lower than a standard wine (12%).

Alcohol has a sophisticated taste that turns a soft drink into something more special. We added the lightest touch we could, to keep that taste, but lose the unwanted side effects of something full strength. It turns out, the magic number was 6%.

No, technically Mary is not a gin. But to make life easy, think of it as gin-esque.

What we can say is, if you like the botanical taste of gin but want a drink that's natural and has a lighter touch on your body and mind, then Mary is definitely for you.

Nope. Not a drop.

Mary has no sugar, artificial sweeteners (or carbs, for that matter). Mary's delicious taste comes from simple plants.

Our botanicals are carefully sourced then each distilled uniquely and individually to create concentrated botanical essences with the optimum, true herbal flavour. They are then blended together, with a little alcohol, to our proprietary recipe.

Mary is gladly: 

Carb free
Vegetarian
Vegan

None. Mary is free of all EU Food Allergen guideline ingredients.
