PINK GIN

Pink gin has a fascinating back story, so here's some history, and little word on why our sugar-free pink gin is as tasty as it is...

 

Pink gin didn’t always refer to blush-hued gin. The term pink gin actually has its foundations in a cocktail, long before it was a colourful spirit. Back in the nineteenth century, it was originally used as a medical cure. Bitters were given to sailors in the Royal Navy to combat seasickness, but the sailors weren't big fans of the taste so the powers-that-be quite sensibly added something they were fond of - gin. This cocktail earned the name pink gin because the bitters lent it a rosy hue, and it remains part of the classic canon of British serves.
