Scottish Distillers Edinburgh Gin have lifted our spirits (no pun intended) once again with the release of their new fruity, full-strength flavours: Gooseberry & Elderflower, and Raspberry.
Last year we saw Edinburgh Gin unveil three full-strength impressions including their award-winning Rhubarb & Ginger, followed by their Lemon & Jasmine and Bramble & Honey. Now, carrying on with the trend, and just in time for Spring they have released two new flavours that sound absolutely delightful.
Whilst waiting patiently for those warmer spring-like days to come, and in this current time, what could be better than sipping on these summery flavoured gins in the comfort of your own home!
The Gooseberry & Elderflower Gin offers a mix of tart gooseberries and sweet elderflower, making a tangy and refreshing gin with a juniper-forward London Dry base.
Serving suggestion: Gooseberry & Elderflower Gin pairs perfectly with a light tonic and garnished with fresh mint. It also works wonderfully as a base for summery cocktails.
Meanwhile, the Raspberry Gin is a full-strength iteration of the brand’s Raspberry Gin Liqueur. Bursting with natural flavour, it is distilled with five traditional gin botanicals combined with fresh Scottish raspberries and raspberry leaves.
Serving suggestion: Raspberry Gin is best served with tonic and garnished with fresh basil and a few raspberries – of course! Like the Gooseberry & Elderflower Gin it also works well mixed into a summery cocktail and can be enjoyed served neat over ice.
A spokesperson for Edinburgh Gin said: “With a natural light green hue, Gooseberry & Elderflower Gin is the perfect mix for tonic, or a sharp base spirit for a gin cocktail.
“The red liquid of Raspberry Gin reflects a naturally flavoured product bursting with deep raspberry aromas and tastes – from nose to palate.”
Neil Mowat, UK Marketing Director of Edinburgh Gin owner Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “2019 was a big year for Edinburgh Gin as we established ourselves within the premium full-strength flavoured gin category.
“The new products reflect our commitment to explore the best ingredients and most wonderful flavour combinations, particularly as the flavoured gin category continues to grow.”
