Move over pink gin, there’s a new kin on the block – red gin! Mr Hobb’s Raspberry & Elderflower Gin Liqueur gets its deep luscious red colour from fresh British raspberries.
The nose is full of ripe berries which continue onto the palate before a long and refreshing Elderflower finish. It really is the taste of the British countryside at its best.
Apart from raspberry and elderflower there are some pretty sweet botanicals in this liqueur, and we mean sweet! Marshmallow is listed as an ingredient, meaning sweet tooths should go wild for it.
You’ll also find citrus botanicals such as lemon peel and lime flower alongside juniper, orris root, angelica and a 9th botanical that Mr Hobb’s are keeping as a family secret.
If you are celebrating an occasion the gin liqueur is an ideal accompaniment to Prosecco as part of a gin and Prosecco cocktail, but just as delicious with soda or tonic water.
Mr Hobb’s recommends a perfect serve of 40ml poured onto ice cubes in a tall, cold glass and topped with light tonic. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
For a more fruity taste pop a 35ml measure into a champagne flute and fill with prosecco for a nice, bubbly treat. To garnish, use a few fresh raspberries to complete the ultimate fruity yet refreshing tipple.
Mr Hobb’s Raspberry & Elderflower Gin Liqueur (50cl) 21.5% ABV, is available to buy from the Gin Kin Shop priced at £25.
