An eye-catching periwinkle blue, with rose jam and cooked coriander seed.
Light rye bread alongside some huckleberry. This is followed by the citrus zing of lime and cracked black pepper.
A gentle bitterness, reminiscent of grapefruit zest, is accompanied by residual fiery warmth of ginger root.
Citrus- and spice-forward with more intensity than other colour-changing gins. Given its properties, serve with a grapefruit tonic or in a Gin Collins.
Surprisingly traditional, with juniper followed by cinnamon and citrus fruit. There’s no hint of what gives it its electric colour.
Oily and powerful. There’s a lot going on with tingly spices nicely balanced with citrus fruit – grapefruit mingling with sweet ginger.
A warm glow, slightly sweet with juniper berries, black pepper and citrus.
Love or hate the colour, this is well-made with a lot of character. Will enhance any gin cocktail and look as good as it tastes in a G&T.
