Flavoured Gins For World Gin Day

Saturday 13 June is
World Gin Day 2020, and thanks to the craft gin scene, the juniper-based spirit
is more popular than ever!

If you’re looking to celebrate the day, whether you’re a gin connoisseur or looking to try something new, there’s a multitude of ways to explore Britain’s favourite spirit.

Bloom gin, a
distiller from the North West has launched two new flavoured gins inspired by
the nation's favourite cocktails, drawing on the flavours of Passionfruit
Martinis and Raspberry Mojitos

If you've been
missing cocktails in lockdown, this could be for you…

The Passion Fruit
& Vanilla Blossom flavoured gin is inspired by a classic Passionfruit
Martini, while the Raspberry & Rose Gin takes its flavour concept from a
Raspberry Mojito.

The tasting notes for
the Passion Fruit & Vanilla
Blossom Gin (40 per cent ABV) say it has the
soft aroma of vanilla and sweet of passionfruit, while the Raspberry & Rose
Gin is described as having sweet and juicy raspberry flavours, complemented by
notes of rose.

They are both
available to buy at Tesco and Amazon, with an RRP of £25.

Either of the gins would work beautifully to create fruity G&Ts, but they’re wonderful for experimenting with creating new cocktails. The company has even shared recipes on their Instagram account to get you started!

You can’t beat a good
gin in the summer, whether it’s in an iconic G&T, loaded with ice and lime,
or a fantabulous fruity cocktail. Flavoured gins are showing no signs of
slowing down in popularity, and we think these two are bound to go down a
storm.

But if you prefer to leave your cocktails to the professionals, there isn’t much longer to wait, as we are taking bookings for our cocktail bars in Covent Garden from 17 July!
