May we present chocolate orange gin? Yep, chocolate and orange for grown ups.It’s a flavour pairing that’s taken on with some adventurous gin distillers, much to our delight.


McQueen Spiced Chocolate Orange

Rich and fruity with a bit of spice, orange meets chocolate in this splendid gin. It’s chocolate orange in a glass and delightfully so.

McQueen Spiced Chocolate Orange Gin is complex with fruity orange, rich chocolate and juniper — a winning combination.

This gin practically begs to be garnished with fragrant cinnamon sticks and fresh orange slices. Its spices make it refreshing yet cosy.
