Pink Gin has become increasingly popular in recent years and according to a report, there are now 5.1 million pink gin drinkers across Britain! The rising popularity of this rose-coloured tipple has been attributed to the wider appeal of sweeter beverages over more savoury, herbaceous drinks. The eye-catching pink drinks have become somewhat of a trend with many 'gin-fluencers' on Instagram and pink gin reflects the coveted colour of its typical millennial user base, 'millennial pink'.
There are many gin distillers who have perfected the art of creating a balanced pink gin and in this blog post, we will share some of our favourite pink and fruit-flavoured gins. We will also include their ideal serving suggestions so that you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about!
Mermaid Pink Gin is produced by the Isle of Wight Distillery. They infuse the flavour and aromatics of Island strawberries with the smooth yet complex taste of their award-winning original Mermaid Gin and a blend of lemon zest, grains of paradise and fragrant rock samphire. This pink gin is perfectly balanced, subtle yet vibrant and less sweet than most pink gins as it contains no added sugar.
★ Serving Suggestion: It makes a delicious G&T when garnished with strawberries.
Chase Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo Gin is a single-estate British gin traditionally crafted by copper pot distilling. The perfect pairing of pink grapefruit and pomelo produces a tantalising and zesty flavour profile when combined with the extra botanicals. The addition of nutmeg, almond, coriander and lemon helps to give this gin a full-bodied sweetness which is heightened by delightful citrus acidity.
★ Serving Suggestion: It mixes perfectly with lots of ice, a premium tonic and garnished with a wedge of pink grapefruit.
Rock Rose Pink Grapefruit Old Tom Gin is a premium award-winning Scottish gin produced in a traditional copper pot still at Dunnet Bay Distillers. Its selection of local and traditional botanicals are each meticulously chosen for their distinctive flavour profiles. The fresh, organic pink grapefruit peel and muscovado sugar produce a wonderful fresh citrus flavour with a beautiful sweetness.
★ Serving Suggestion: Serve 25ml of Rock Rose Gin with 50ml of a premium tonic and garnish with pink grapefruit or orange peel.

Distilled and crafted using the finest Macedonian juniper berries, this is expertly partnered with a natural, but not overpowering soft sweetness from strawberries and angelica.
