July 18, 2018 – A new rose pink gin has just been released nationally. After much success in France and Spain, Bosford Rose Premium Gin & Strawberry Liqueur is set to capture the market’s desire for all things rosé.
Strawberry and raspberry flavors are blended with the original Bosford London Dry Gin recipe of juniper, coriander, angelica, lemon and orange peel. There’s just a hint of sugar making it perfect for lighthearted summer sipping over ice or as part of a sophisticated cocktail.
Pink Gin has an interesting history
A drink called Pink Gin was popular in the mid-1800s. The British Navy gets credit for its creation. Angostura bitters was said to combat seasickness. So, gin was added to make the bitters more palatable. The Angostura bitters give the drink a pinkish hue. Gin and tonic also has a medicinal pedigree, the gin being added to quinine, which was taken to combat malaria. Both drinks soon became a part of the national drinking culture in the U.K.
