Keyword GiNiT Thyme
GiNiT Thyme

GiNiT Thyme is a beautiful harmony between the dry and slightly minty note of Thyme, added to the flavour profile of a traditional Gin & Tonic. Try it on butternut, chicken, or in tomato based dishes… or let your imagination run wild.

If you have tried the other variants, but not the GiNiT Thyme, you can find a bottle in our online shop…
