Halloween brought us a spooky green gin cursed by an actual witch, but now we’re ready to embrace our favourite holiday of the year, Christmas, and so are ginnovators. This year, you can decorate your Christmas tree with Internet sensation Pickering’s Gin Baubles and you can count the days to the big day with the help of your own gin advent calendar.
And while these creations focus on bringing gin into Christmas, now there’s one that brings Christmas into gin. Lidl has launched two Christmas gin liqueurs, each priced at £11.99 as part of their new liqueur range (which also includes the new Liberté Aged Black Spiced Rum, priced at £15.99).
The innovations come right on time for the party season and are expected to be popular this Christmas.
Hortus Raspberry Gin Liqueur and Hortus Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur are variations of Lidl’s award-winning Hortus Gin.
Regarding serving suggestions, the raspberry liqueur is ideal to combine with Champagne or sparkling wine to create delightful spritzer cocktails and the Rhubarb & Ginger liqueur can be enhanced by mixing it with ginger beer, but feel free to experiment!
Unfortunately, it isn’t available in Ireland at the moment but we’ve our fingers crossed the gin gets here soon.
