London's first truely pink 'pink' gin

Edgerton Distillers introduced its Edgerton Original Pink dry gin at Distil  – a traditional gin but with the distinct, added difference of a pink blush derived from pomegranate – definitely not to be confused with the old nautical pink gin made with bitters.

Distilled and bottled in London by Thames Distillers, the spirit is small batch triple distilled with 14 botanicals in copper pot stills and cold filtered. Distiller Matthew Pawley worked with company chairman Martin Edgerton Gill to create the new style of gin. The botanicals include coriander, angelica, juniper, orris root, sweet orange peel, cassia bark, grains of paradise, damiana and pomegranate – steeped for 24 hours before being distilled in grain spirit. Pomegranate extract is then added for the colour.

The gin makes a refreshing cocktail base or a G&T with a twist. Dry and sharp with strong but refreshing grapefruit/orange citrus flavours that mingle with mint and peppery spices. It is 47%abv with an RRP of £39 and distributed by Coe Vintners, Speciality Drinks, and Soho Wine Supply.
