Venture to the dark side with this sparkly black gin liqueur


Delighted by shimmer powder and bedazzled by glittery gin bottles in times past, we’re suckers for sparkle. So we were doubly intrigued when we set our eyes on this dark and mysterious bottle.

Firebox’s Unicorn Tears Black Gin Liqueur speaks directly to our inner goth. While said to be the tears of battery farmed unicorns (or your enemies, as we like to think) this deviant gin tastes the same as their Unicorn Tears Gin.

“They keep crying, we keep bottling it. But why did this limited edition batch of Unicorn Tears turn out black?,” writes Firebox.

Black as night and shimmery as a disco ball, the black gin liqueur is just available in miniatures. The limited edition 5cl bottles are a double measure of black magic. Just tuck this black gin mini and the matching Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur Miniature for any spells on the go.

Halloween may be behind us, but we’re captivated by this iridescent black gin even still. It comes from online retailer Firebox, the same people who first put the words “unicorn” and “gin” together two years ago already.

Not to mention that the hyped up Unicorn Gin isn’t Firebox’s only glittery spirit. Its sister products, Mermaid Tears Vodka and Phoenix Tears Spiced Rum, are extracted from lustrous tears of other mythical creatures.

Unicorn Tears Black Gin Liqueur (5cl, 40% abv) is available now on Firebox
