Pink Grapefruit Gin Liqueur – 27% ABV

A lusciously sweet and vibrantly flavoured gin liqueur

As summer arrives, so do the elderflowers. During the transitional moment between seasons, the paddle-shaped clusters of blooms suddenly abound across London, and their heady scent perfumes the city. Inspired by that new flowering, our own Sipsmith Swan Livy decided to work alongside our distillers to try her hand at crafting a gin liqueur for her birthday. Featuring a generous quantity of elderflower, the recipe also includes both dried and fresh pink grapefruit peel, which—thanks to its candied, juicy character and balancing citric bite—makes the perfect pairing. The result is a lusciously sweet and vibrantly flavoured gin liqueur, which does as well in a spritz as it does in a sour. For an even quicker, simpler option, top it up with ginger ale for dreamy warm-weather refreshment.

The Nose: An irresistible, candied sweetness, mingled with floral and citrus notes

The Palate: Honeyed elderflower leads, followed by juicy grapefruit and piquant peel

The Finish: Tangy citrus and subtle spice balance with beguiling floral notes that are nearly endless
