Top 10 captivating pink spirits

As some of the biggest gin brands tap into the trend for pink, we look at the leading producers adding a splash of millennials’ favourite colour to their spirits.

SB takes a look at some of the spirits targeting millennials with Instagram-worthy expressions

Last year, we predicted the pink gin trend would only grow with a number of big distillers following suit, including Diageo with Gordon’s Gin and, more recently, French drinks group Pernod Ricard, which announced its release of a pink variation of its Beefeater gin last week.

Alcohol producers are clearly taking note of the trend with more distillers unveiling a variety of pink spirits – and it’s not just gin either. Distillers are moving into pink vodka and liqueurs to target millennials with the most pleasing, rose-tinted expressions worthy of an Instagram post.

It seems the popularity of so-called ‘millennial pink’ is here to stay, as many distillers start to make their limited-edition rose-coloured expressions part of their permanent ranges.

Scroll through the following pages for our pick of the top 10 pink spirits. 

Burleighs Gin Pink Edition

Leicestershire-based gin brand Burleighs launched a pink gin in 2016, featuring botanicals such as preserved Japanese cherry blossom, pink grapefruit, hibiscus and rose flowers.
