What is Pink Gin?

If you want to know all there is to know about the fastest growing drink in the UK right now then there’s only one thing for it…you’ll have to read this blog post!

Pink Gin has taken the drinks world by storm, and with good reason. To get in on the act we’ve recently launched a personalised Pink Gin so that you can take gifting to new heights by really showing off. Perfect if you want to show that special someone you care, or put a smile on your best mate’s face. So, without further ado let’s fill you in on everything you need to know…

How is pink gin made?

Ask anyone of a certain age what their tipple of choice is and you’re bound to here any number of slang terms for a good old drop of gin. Whilst this hearty spirit has been warming people up for years now, and the classic slimline G&T is still a classic, gin isn’t necessarily the drink of choice for the younger drinker…until now.

Pink gin is a tasty little cocktail that has its roots in Plymouth as long ago as the 1800s. Local publicans found they could sell plenty more of the good stuff to a whole different crowd by changing the colour and altering the flavour. In case you hadn’t guessed it from the title up there they made it pink, but how did they do it?

With a dash of Angostura bitters they were able to create what would become the fastest growing tipple of 2018. The deep broody red of the bitters was washed out by the clear gin to give a vibrant pink that stands out on any rack of spirits from across even the most crowded of bars. Not only does it make the colour far more eye-catching, it also gives it a subtle sweetness that you know you’ll love the moment you open up the bottle. Now all you need to do is figure out how you’re going to mix it…

What goes with pink gin?

Good question right! As with any gin Gordon’s is right up there when you’re looking for the best taste so why not knock yourself up a Gordon’s pink G&T? It’s a twist on an age old classic that you’d be mad not to give a try. Here’s how you can make it happen in the blink of an eye folks:

  • 50 ml of Gordon’s pink gin: personalise it too if you want it to really make all the right noises
  • 150 ml of your favourite tonic water, or you could even go for lemonade if you’re in the mood
  • Serve it over some ice cubes in a giant wine glass so you can really maximise the aroma


Now if that doesn’t sound like the perfect way to sit back and enjoy the summer this evening then I don’t know what to tell you!

How do you drink pink gin?

You might think that this is just the same as the last section, but there’s plenty more tasty little tips buried in here for your delight!

Drinking gin is not about downing it like you would vodka shots, and it’s a little more refined than working your way through a pack of beers with your mates. Gin is a drink for the connoisseur, and one that you need to treat accordingly if you’re going to get the most out of it. It’s all about adding subtle infusions and aromas that make your cocktail unique so that your tastebuds will demand nothing less, and every guest you pour it for will insist on getting the recipe before they leave for the night.

If you’re looking for a couple of top tips then may we suggest you opt for a Fever-Free tonic to give real clarity and depth to every mouthful of your G&T? You’re also going to want to twist a little lemon zest over the top of your glass before you sit back and put your feet up. Give it a try and with a little tweaking you’re guaranteed to find the perfect tipple for your palette.
