As overcast as the weather may be this week, spring is on the way. With the promise of warmer days in sight, Edinburgh Gin is launching two new full-strength flavoured gins perfect for springtime and summery tipples.
If you're a fan of the brand's gin products, like their firm-favourite award-winning rhubarb and ginger, then you'll likely be eager to try their new 40% ABV flavoured offerings. The masterful play with flavour and taste that made their gin liqueurs so successful was ahead of the game, so expanding their full-strength gin offering they face high expectations from consumers.
The first is already available to buy and a younger sibling to their raspberry liqueur. It is distilled with fresh Scottish raspberries and raspberry leaves matched with five traditional gin botanicals.
The second of the pair balances tart gooseberry with sweet elderflower to make to make a tangy and refreshing gin, capturing classic British flavours with a a juniper-forward London Dry base.

Neil Mowat, UK Marketing Director of Ian Macleod Distillers, said in a press release that: "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."
The new flavours certainly sound in-keeping with that Edinburgh Gin British woodland character that threads throughout the range. If they're half as good as the Rhubarb then we think we'll be seeing plenty more of these two new flavours. From country pubs to cocktail bars and garden parties the versatility of flavoured gins means the trend is going nowhere... and thank goodness for that.
Edinburgh Gin Raspberry (ABV 40%, 70cl) is available now on the Edinburgh Gin site in 70cl with a RRP of £28.
Edinburgh Gin Gooseberry & Elderflower (ABV 40%, 70cl) will be available selected retailers from 13 March also with a RRP of £28.
