There’s a fine line with sweet gins. Either you end up with something sickly sweet and synthetic tasting, or you get a refreshingly crisp and delicious tipple. Luckily for us, this one from Edinburgh Gin is definitely the latter.
If you’ve been scarred by overly sweet gins in the past, you can rest assured that many of the reviews mentioned that this one struck the balance between dry and sweet perfectly, with one saying: “Lovely flavour and the rose isn’t too prominent”.
The sweetness of this liqueur is delicate, with hints of floral and reminiscent of Turkish Delight.
By blending pomegranate seeds and rose petals with Edinburgh Gin, a warm, fruity gin with a twist of light citrus is created.
If you’re looking for a bottle for a celebration, this one is perfect.
The flavour tastes divine when mixed with prosecco, or as a sweet addition to a classic martini.
If you want something extra simple, it even tastes delicious solo over ice.
One reviewer recommends: “Add a small measure to the bottom of a champagne glass, top up with prosecco and garnish with a twist of lemon for a taste of heaven. This is the nicest of the Edinburgh Gin liqueurs. ”.
The 500ml bottle is currently on sale on Amazon, going from £16.50 to £11.99, saving you £4.51.
If you’re looking for a gift, this gin is a great option according to the reviews.
One reviewer who bought a bottle for her mother for Christmas said: “Mum says this is lovely, and I wouldn’t argue that’s for sure. Especially after she downed a bottle of this in one sitting. I bought Mum a bottle over Christmas along with the Apple spiced one from the same company and she said it’s lovely”.
This wasn’t the only review that mentioned the gin was almost a little too easy to drink with another saying: “I’m not going to lie I drank half a bottle in one sitting. Very tasty and very moreish”.
Another person who was delighted to receive a bottle of the good stuff as a present said: “This is now one of my firm favourites.
“I received it as a gift and have since bought it for myself. Light and fresh tasting. Not too sweet thanks to the hints of rose”.
