Adnams joins pink gin craze

Aug 23, 2018by Owen Bellwood

Suffolk-based brewer and distiller Adnams has entered the ever-growing pink gin market with its Copper House Pink Gin expression.

The English brand's first flavoured gin bottling uses Adnams Copper House Dry Gin as the base, which is then flavoured with raspberries. Head distiller at Adnams John McCarthy said: “Our Copper House Dry Gin is made from grain to glass using East Anglian malted barley which is first brewed into an unhopped beer before being distilled to a vodka. “We then redistil this vodka with six botanicals – juniper berries, orris root, coriander seed, cardamom pod, sweet orange peel and hibiscus flower to create our award-winning Dry Gin. "Raspberry is then added to create those amazingly vibrant fruity aromas. It’s a fun, pink twist on our great gin.” The new pink spirit will be available to buy in store at Adnams’ retail outlets, online from Adnams’ website, and will be served at Adnams-managed inns from tomorrow (24 August). Adnams Copper House Pink Gin is bottled at 40% abv and carries a RRP of £29.99 (US$39) per 700ml bottle.
