Old Curiosity Distillery Partners With Great British Bake Off Finalist for Christmas Gin

The Old Curiosity Distillery is bringing back its popular Christmas gin in partnership with 2018 Great British Bake Off finalist Ruby Bhogal.

The Old Curiosity Distillery’s Christmas gin is distilled with ginger, cinnamon and cardamom which gives the undeniably familiar smell of Christmas and provides a festive spicy flavour.

The ingredients used to create this gin are ‘nature distilled’, all natural and mostly sourced from the distillery’s Secret Herb Garden.

The drink is infused with mallow petals to provide a distinctive festive colour which transforms to a vibrant pink when mixed with tonic water.

The flavoured gin gets its magical, colour-changing properties from a natural reaction which causes the PH levels of the gin to adjust when tonic is added.

Garnished with a slice of dried orange peel, a cinnamon stick and a dash of tonic to activate its colour changing properties.

Hamish Martin, herbologist and founder of The Old Curiosity Distillery, said: “Following our initial success in 2018 where a small batch production of 50 cases sold out in a few days, we decided to make the Christmas gin a regular variant as part of our seasonal collection.

And indeed gin lovers were delighted by last year’s pink colour changing gin honouring Christmas, so we’re more than excited to try out this year’s launch.

Christmas gin is 39% ABV and available from October in 50 cl bottles. Purchase online at theoldcuriosity.co.uk, from department stores including Harvey Nichols, Fenwicks and Dobbies garden centre for RRP £35.
