Why settle with roses when you can have all the botanicals? Lidl’s recent ginnovation is perfect for the month of love: Pink gin. And is not one, but two creations that will surely fly off the shelves.
Hortus Raspberry Gin Liqueur and Hortus Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur are variations of Lidl’s award-winning Hortus Gin. These are two gin-based liqueurs, ideal to craft delicious cocktails with a shade of blush and delicate flavours.
The first one is a rhubarb and ginger tipple, with a paler hue and a sharper flavour profile. The second one is a raspberry flavoured drink. Both have an ABV of 20% and are made in England, starting with a base of traditionally distilled gin made in copper stills.
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!
The innovations come right on time for the sweetest of seasons and will hit Irish shelves nationwide on the 12th of February.
The gins were initially launched last Christmas in the UK, and now is the turn for local gin lovers to savour them. Each bottle is priced at €14.99 and available until stocks last.
