Edinburgh Gin creates ‘first’ vanilla and plum gin liqueurBy Nicola Carruthers
Edinburgh Gin has unveiled a new limited edition expression, Plum & Vanilla Liqueur, thought to be the first of its kind.
Edinburgh Gin Plum & Vanilla Liqueur will join the brand’s family of fruit gin liqueurs: Raspberry, Elderflower and Rhubarb & Ginger.
At a limited run of 12,000 bottles, the new offering has an abv of 20% and is made from Scottish plums and Madagascan vanilla.
Alex and Jane Nicol, co-founders of Edinburgh Gin, originally thought of the new recipe while picking plums at their home in Scotland.
Alex Nicol said: “Plum and Madagascan Vanilla perfectly complements our range of popular gin-based fruit liqueurs, and we are delighted to add Plum & Vanilla to the family.
“This new recipe has been devised from quality ingredients, producing an opulent and indulgent fruit liqueur, great for cocktails, after dinner drinks and desserts.
“As the UK’s first plum and vanilla gin liqueur on the market, Edinburgh Gin is continuing to craft the gin renaissance and be at the forefront of gin-making in the UK.”
Serving suggestions include a Plum Negroni, a new twist on a Kir Royale and a Plum Collins.
Edinburgh Gin Plum & Vanilla Liqueur is available from 19 October from John Lewis, independent drinks retailers, the distillery shop at the visitor centre and their online shop.
