Add some sweetness to your drink this World Gin Day!
To match the exotic mix of botanicals in their Original London Dry Gin, Greenall’s has just released two unique gin liqueurs — Green Apple & Hibiscus Gin Liqueur and Blood Orange Fig & Ginger Gin Liqueur – just in time for World Gin Day (13 June).
Both of these innovative drinks share a contemporary take on gin, featuring vibrant fruity flavours that are sure to warm you up without the harsh burn of a fully-loaded gin.
The signature serves for these liqueurs are made with ingredients that are widely available and their simple cocktail making methods make it easy for everyone to recreate at home. Both liqueurs have a distinct taste, making it appealing to those who are new to the world of gin tasting or seeking drinks with a lower ABV (20%).
The Green Apple & Hibiscus Gin Liqueur shares a modern flavour profile. It perfectly balances the crisp green apple with the sweet-sour tanginess of hibiscus, reflecting the botanicals that Greenall’s carefully sources from around the world.
Meanwhile the Blood Orange Fig & Ginger Gin Liqueur balances the intense blood orange with the luscious sweetness of fig and the zestyness of ginger. It’s a liqueur that offers new gin consumers a smooth taste of gin with appealing, complementary flavours. Just like its newly released sibling.
