Valentine’s Day Cocktails with Edinburgh Gin’s Rhubarb and Ginger Gin Liqueur


With January officially being out of the way (took long enough), love is in the air as we’re anticipating Valentine’s Day.

Not that we needed any other excuse to bring out the pink gin and enjoy it in abundance, but the fact that everything looks pink anyway, reinforces the suitability of its consumption for the occasion.

Nothing signifies Valentine’s Day better than a good pink tipple and Edinburgh Gin has got just what we need in the delicious gin department. Whether it’s the classic Rhubarb and Ginger Gin Liqueur or the Special Edition Valentine’s Gin we’re up for the enjoyment of both.
