This gin also draws its magical powers from an ingredient known as butterfly pea flower.
An all-natural ingredient, the flower often features in tea and is well-known for being full of antioxidants.
In gin, however, the flower makes the drink go from blue to pink with the addition of tonic.
The recommended way to enjoy the illusion is to pour the gin into a large glass with ice and garnish, then follow with your favourite tonic. You’ll see your G&T change colour before your eyes.
It’s also got a pretty tasty line-up of botanicals including apple and vanilla for anyone willing and ready to dive into this treat.
That’s not all this incredible colour changing gin can achieve, however.
