Fans of budget gin, it’s great news from Lidl UK this autumn. The supermarket has just launched a brand new addition to its popular Hortus gin liqueur range.
Introducing new Hortus Pomegranate & Rose Gin Liqueur, a deliciously fruity and floral way to enjoy your next tipple.
This new gin liqueur diversifies the Hortus offering, moving it from a focus on sweet fruits to the recent floral spirits trend.
Supermarket gin is showing no signs of slowing down, with Lidl UK recently winning Supermarket Own Branded Spirits Range of the Year at the International Spirits Challenge. It looks as if this latest release to the Hortus family is equally set to impress.
Taking its design lead from the hallmarks of its predecessors, this stylish Oslo-shaped bottle denotes the artisan ingredients used. Its beautiful pink and red artwork reflects the liqueur’s primary botanicals.
Pomegranate adds a little fruity twist with balanced sweetness to the taste, while rose provides a light, floral quality for the anticipated Indian summer and beyond. You can also expect a little tart fruit flavour in your glass – all for the bargain price of £11.99!
To get the best taste from your new liqueur, Lidl’s Spirits Expert, Tristan Stephenson, recommends serving the new spirit with Lidl’s Italian Asti Spumante, 7.5% ABV at £5.49.
Simply serve the combination nice and cold in a champagne flute and finish off with a simple, zesty garnish – a strip of lemon works perfectly!
We anticipate this Pomegranate & Rose flavour is sure to be popular. Fans can’t get enough of Lidl’s gin with the retailer seeing a massive 40% rise in gin sales this year.
Incredibly, over 400 bottles per hour of its pink gin liqueurs were sold in November, equating to 7 bottles per minute within the first few days so be sure to visit your local now.
Hortus Pomegranate & Rose Gin Liqueur ( 50cl) is available at Lidl now, costing £11.99 with an ABV of 20%.
