Lidl is now stocking a colour-changing gin which activates when tonic water is added, as part of its Gin Festival.

The Anno Strawberry & Blueberry Colour-Changing Gin (£19.99 for 70cl) is initially blue but turns to pink as a tonic water mixer is combined.

The drink was created by two scientists who left careers in pharmaceuticals to start the Anno distillery in Kent.

The new addition to Lidl’s drinks section is part of the retailer’s gin festival which has returned this year with 14 gin products from British distilleries, including non-alcoholic and pre-mixed options.

Other gins in the collection include a fragrant pineapple and raspberry gin as well as the tea-infused Brentingby Gin Rooibos and Baobab Gin. The latter gin is made by the Brentingby distillery near Melton Mowbray (of the famous pies) which uses wind turbines to power the production lines more sustainably.

There is also a non-alcoholic gin by Spirits of Virtue, the Cero Cero Rhubarb and Ginger Non-Alcoholic Gin (£9.99, 70cl) which has “hints of heather, rose petals, lemon peel, and juniper.”

Pre-mixed options include rose lemonade pre-mixed gin as well as a plum and peach gin with tonic, starting from £1.99.

The gin festival hits stores on Thursday 27 May, so keep an eye on the shelves so you can stock up with tipples and alcohol-free options in time for the bank holiday weekend.
