5 of the Best Rhubarb and Ginger Gins You Should Try

It’s the flavour that’s helped kickstart a whole trend. A variant of pink gin, rhubarb has emerged as a champion of flavoured gin.

Thanks to this lil’ garden veg, we’ve seen an ever greater increase in experimental gins. Locally-sourced botanicals such as honey, heather and seaweed have all become commonplace in the world of gin.

If you still hanker for the original taste of this sweet garden delight, however, here’s our honest guide to the best rhubarb gin and gin liqueurs around.
