Delicious Pink Gins to Brighten Your Winter

Pink gins have become ever so popular, and they aren’t just for the summer any more, but all-year-round deliciousness. They are made with a variety of ingredients, from sweeter berries to juicy citrus to delicate florals. Some brands have based their recipe on the traditional pink gin, which was created with angostura bitters.

I have listed some popular pink gins below; it is nearly Valentine’s Day, after all.

1 Pinkster Gin 70cl 37.5% ABV

Pinkster Gin is the pink gin pioneer, made with real raspberries. Subtle sweetness with clear notes of juniper. Excellent gin!

2 Warner Edwards Victoria’s Rhubarb Gin 70cl 40% ABV

Expect tangy rhubarb with lovely sweetness and spicy notes from juniper, black pepper and cardamom. One of my favourites!

3 Whittaker’s Gin – Pink Peculier 70cl 42% ABV

A variation of Whittaker’s Gin with the addition of pink peppercorns and hibiscus, resulting in only a slight pink hue. Expect subtle floral notes, peppery juniper and slight spiciness from the peppercorns, with a herbaceous finish.

9 Brentingby Pink Gin 70cl 45% ABV

A variation of their original gin with the addition of rooibos, baobab and hibiscus, which gives the gin its light pink colour. Herbal, subtly floral with a citrusy finish. This is a proper gin with plenty of juniper coming through.
