This gorgeous rosy red Secret Garden Christmas gin from the Old Curiosity Distillery takes its festive colour from hollyhock petals and its inspiration from medieval Christmas feasts.

The gin is distilled with botanicals grown in the distillery’s Secret Herb Garden on the outskirts of Edinburgh. It uses cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom for a truly festive flavour and naturally creates the charming red hue with hollyhock petals.

Beautifully bottled with a festive holly print label there's a real old fashioned feel to this winter treat which is available in an ideal stocking filler size of 5cl, a standard 20cl and a larger 50cl.

The distillery's recommended serve is a simple 50ml measure over ice, topped with low sugar tonic and an orange garnish.

Hamish Martin, Director at the Old Curiosity Distillery, said in the press release: "We really wanted to explore a new range of festive flavours using traditional seasonal ingredients to make our Christmas Gin. We drew influence from medieval Christmas feasts by distilling the gin with cinnamon and aromatic cardamom, while the ginger gives the spirit an extra kick for warmth!

"We’ve proud to say that our Christmas Gin contains no preservatives, sugars, colourings or flavourings, only truly natural ingredients from our very own Secret Herb Garden in Midlothian. We hope gin lovers enjoy our festive tipple this Christmas."
