EDINBURGH Gin has launched a limited-edition Valentine’s gin.

The exclusive small-batch gin contains delicate floral notes and a pink hue from an infusion of rose petals and hibiscus.

It also has added chamomile, lemon balm, lemongrass and Kaffir lime leaves to achieve sweet, floral notes which contrast with crisp, fresh hints of citrus.

Edinburgh Gin’s head distiller, Dave Wilkinson, said: “At Edinburgh Gin, we love to share our passion for making truly distinctive gin.

“By blending botanicals including chamomile, lemon balm, lemongrass with distinctive, romantic floral tones of rose petals and hibiscus, we have created a gin that works perfectly with the indulgent flavours of the season. It makes the ideal Valentine’s gift for those seeking something unique for their loved ones.”

To compliment the gin, the art deco style bottle is adorned with a rose floral design and touches of pink and gold.

Edinburgh Gin says the new drink works well with tonic, soda or rose lemonade.

They have also created a cocktail, the sweet tasting The First Kiss, which combines the gin with the company’s Raspberry Fruit Gin Liqueur and pineapple juice.

Just 3000 bottles of Edinburgh Valentine’s Gin (ABV 43 per cent) are available in 70cl bottle from select specialist retailers and Edinburgh Gin distillery shop and online shop at www.edinburghgin.com for an RRP of £35.00.
