Sainsbury’s Is Launching A Citrus-y Delight Soon And Our Excitement Is Real

Sainsbury’s has launched a brand new gin that sounds perfect for summer.

The new “Taste the Difference Blackfriars Orange & Blossom Gin” will soon be available in stores, and online, and we’re counting down the days.

“We were delighted to create a drink that is synonymous with Sainsbury’s British heritage, whilst giving our customers a sumptuous tipple to toast with, no matter the occasion”, says Louise Lynch, Product Developer Manager at Sainsbury’s.

This tipple is infused with eight aromatic botanicals and packed with zesty orange blossom and thyme and it most certainly cannot get more summer-like than this.

“There’s nothing we seem to love more than a classic G&T, so whether it is a summer BBQ with friends or a family get-together, this gin is a great option for any upcoming summer celebration.”

The latest addition joins two others in the Blackfriars spirit range, including Pomegranate & Rose Gin, which has been quite the success ever since it launched last November.

Although Sainsbury’s claims that this is quite the versatile tipple, still, for the best serve it is suggested that you include this as a cocktail base or in a classic G&T.

“We recommend pairing the aromatic gin with Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic and garnishing with a sprinkle Pink Peppercorns, a juicy wedge of Blood Orange and a fresh sprig of thyme and mint for a G&T that’s sure to impress any guest”.

If you’d like to purchase a bottle this goes on sale on the 28th April and will retail for £16 in Sainsbury’s.
