Pink Marmalade Gin magic in a bottle

We believe in love at first sight I believe in love at first gin. Pink Marmalade Gin is a premium gin like no other as it does not just taste great but it magically changes colour when adding tonic to it.

I was gifted a PR sample of Pink Marmalade Gin to enjoy within the comfort of my home.

Pink Marmalade Gin

Pink Marmalade was founded by purveyors of parties, drawn together to create immersive, hedonistic worlds and elevate event production beyond the everyday.

The gin is an expression of everything the creators wanted from quality to magic to bring people together to share in life’s simple pleasures of gin.

Pink Marmalade Gin is balanced with 13 botanicals, tastes exceptional and is magic in a bottle.

When mixed with tonic the gin magically turns from a cool blue to a subtle rose pink all thanks to the Butterfly Pea flower within.

The 13 botanicals are

  • Almond
  • Angelica Root
  • Pink Peppercorns
  • Coriander Seeds
  • Dried Grapefruit Zest
  • Fresh Grapefruit Zest
  • Orris Root
  • Liquorice Root
  • Kaffir Lime Leaf
  • Juniper Berries
  • Chamomile
  • Orange Zest

Pink marmalade Gin is created using a traditional single-shot method of distillation. A slow and steady burn patiently distils over the course of 12 hours to yield only a tiny volume of the highest quality spirit that they are proud to serve.

The process begins with a secret ingredient, their signature salted pink marmalade. This is then combined with another 12 choice botanicals to create this dry, zesty and ultra-premium gin.

Their distilling process is devoted to the highest quality. From the meticulous selection of the spirit, to demineralised water, to the long hours their botanicals spend steeping in the stills.

Pink Marmalade Gin magic in a bottle

Pink Marmalade Gin comes in a beautiful weighty white bottle and is beautifully labelled picturing all the botanicals within.

Upon pouring the gin into a glass met with a lovely blue liquid which releases floral and citrus notes. Then onto the magic when adding tonic to Pink Marmalade Gin the gin magically starts to change to pink, thanks to the Butterfly Pea Flower within the gin, all 100% natural.

Pink Marmalade Gin is a dry, zesty, unmistakably premium gin which has the perfect blend of botanicals, with that extra magical moment of colour-changing magic.

Apart from having fun and just enjoying a glass of gin with added tonic I also got a little creative myself and made some dishes using it.

Magical

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Pink Marmalade Gin was gin magic. It not only wowed me with the magical moment it provided when adding tonic to it but the taste of the gin was magical with the taste of fruity citrus and floral notes.

I highly recommend this gin if you are looking for a fun magical gin that is fruity yet floral but gives a moment of pure magical entertainment.

A gin which is great for any dinner party or even as a gift but certainly appropriate for Halloween.
