Edinburgh Gin – Scotland’s fastest growing gin brand - reveals a brand new gin liqueur flavour for 2016, Plum & Madagascan Vanilla.

This season’s must-have cocktail ingredient, Plum & Madagascan Vanilla liqueur will join the ever popular family of fruit gin liqueurs; Raspberry, Elderflower and Rhubarb & Ginger.

In the spirit of innovation, Edinburgh Gin’s Plum & Vanilla gin liqueur is the first of its kind available to the UK drinks market.

Alex and Jane Nicol, co-founders of Edinburgh Gin, originally thought of the new recipe while picking plums at their home in Scotland.

Abundant with natural flavour, Plum & Vanilla (ABV 20%) is made from juicy Scottish plums and Madagascar vanilla.

The highest quality vanilla has been sourced from Madagascar for the new recipe.  Such attention to detail reflects Edinburgh Gin’s quest to use only the finest ingredients to create new and vibrant flavours.

Plum & Vanilla liqueur is an exciting new base liqueur for anyone who loves to shake up their own cocktails or those who just like sipping on cocktails. Serving suggestions include a Plum Negroni, a new twist on a Kir Royale and a Plum Collins. This new liqueur is perfect for cocktails this festive season.

The limited edition run will see 12,000 bottles hit shelves of John Lewis, independent drinks retailers, the Edinburgh Gin Distillery Shop at the visitor centre and at Edinburgh Gin Distillery shop online.

Edinburgh Gin’s co-founder, Alex Nicol said:

“Plum & Madagascan Vanilla perfectly complements our range of popular gin-based fruit liqueurs, and we are delighted to add Plum & Vanilla to the family. 

Made with Scottish plums and Vanilla from Madagascar, this new recipe has been devised from quality ingredients, producing an opulent and indulgent fruit liqueur, great for cocktails, after dinner drinks and desserts.

As the UK’s first Plumand Vanilla gin liqueur on the market, Edinburgh Gin is continuing to craft the Gin renaissance and be at the forefront of gin-making in the UK.”
