Marks & Spencer launches premixed gin cans


It’s official: premixed gin cans are all the rage this summer. Hot on the heels of Edinburgh Gin’s cans comes Marks & Spencer’s latest release.

Meet Gin & Tonic Zest and Gin Tonic Spice, two premixed gin cans that would be perfect for a BBQ or a summer picnic alike.

If you’re not already spoiled for choice over on our selection of this summer’s best premixed G&T cans, these beauties should most definitely be sampled.

Made using Mark and Spencer’s most popular gins, No 01 and No 02, the cans incorporate the very same bright colouring and vibrant flavours.

No.1 Spiced features notes of liquorice, rosemary and angelica notes. A hint of spice comes from coriander and ginger.

Meanwhile, No.2 Zest includes flavours of jasmine, fennel and lemon balm.

No 01 and No o2 in their original form. Available together from M&S, £52

The gins usually come in sturdy 70cl bottles, and retail for around £26, but the supermarket brand has worked hard with a distillery in South London to create the smaller-sized, pre-mixed cans.

The decision to transform the gins into ready-to-drink cans will mean not only are they perfectly portable, but seriously affordable too.

The cans will retail for £2.50 in-store and are simply fabulous for popping out the fridge on a warm day.

Marks & Spencer may not be primarily known for their ginnovation, but the store has in recent times been working to bring new offerings.

Recently teaming up with Edinburgh-based distillery, The Old Curiosity, the British brand launched two gins with a magical twist.

Perfectly tapping into the trend for colour changing gin, the new spirits alter their appearance at the addition of tonic.

Choose from either British Rose Dry Gin, created from one of the oldest rose varieties, the Apothecary Rose, or British Lavender Dry Gin.

Each cost an affordable £25  and are the first time colour changing gins have arrived on the high street.

We look forward to seeing what the brand has in store for us next….
