Fans of colour changing gin, rejoice, for we’ve got some great news. Times two.
Old Curiosity Distillery has released not just one, but two limited edition colour changing gins this summer.
The Scottish distillers behind M&S’ recent colour changing lavender and rose gins have announced the launch of Geranium and Mallow and Damask Rose Gins.
These new limited edition bottles will join the distillery’s core range of secret garden gins that also feature a bit of colour changing magic.
Each bottle starts clear but magically transforms to a vibrant pink, while the all-natural botanicals are truly enchanting.
Said to be used for its magical properties of love and acceptance, geranium is an ancient botanical, although not commonly used in gin.
Mallow, on the other hand, is a flower that can only be harvested in sunshine. Without sun, the flowers curl up into an impenetrable cone.
The other limited edition in the series, Damask Rose, brings you one of the oldest rose strains in the world. Expect a pale golden spirit that displays the real colour of the petal once liquid is added.
These new gins truly showcase the beauty of their natural ingredients, which can all be found growing in The Old Curiosity’s very own secret garden.
The distillery recently launched the nation’s first and only pure working gin botanical garden at the foot of the Pentland Hills.
Now you can discover the secrets behind the gin, beginning with the hand-picking and drying of the garden’s flower. Distilling, bottling and labelling is also performed on-site.
With over a thousand juniper bushes, complemented by 500 herbs and floral varieties, both gin and garden is the ultimate tribute to nature’s magic.
500 Old Curiosity Limited Edition Geranium and Mallow Gin and Damask Rose Gins are available now from Harvey Nichols, priced at £60. While stocks last.
