Canary Strawberry Gin Flies Into UK
Our artisan Spanish drinks cabinet has grown again after the addition of the Macaronesian ‘Eternal Spring’ Strawberry Gin to our burgeoning catalogue.
Following the launch of a selection of five Spanish craft gins last year from Barcelona, Andalucia, Catalunya, Tarragona and the Canary Isles, the new launch is the second gin from the Macronesian brand hailing from the Canaries and utilises fresh strawberries hand-picked in the isles.
Available immediately to the ON and OFF Trade in 70cl bottles, the gin has an ABV of 37.5%.
The popularity of gin has rocketed in the past few years as smaller producers have come to the fore with interesting blends of botanicals and craft production techniques. Research from Mintel also revealed that gin is still the fastest-growing white spirit with sales across the board up around 25% and flavoured gin in particular enjoying a positive 2018.
Macaronesian ‘Eternal Spring’ Strawberry Gin (37.5% ABV) – Inspired by the eternal spring of the Canary Islands, this gin is soft, fresh and elegant. On the palate it emphasises the harmony that creates the taste of sweet ripe strawberries with a variety of flower essences that are added to the distillation of fine grains and ‘volcanic rock water’.
Morgenrot’s Commercial Director John Critchley commented:
“We’ve developed a sterling reputation in the trade for our range of Spanish drinks whether that’s wine, beer, sherry, liqueurs or spirits. This latest Macaronesian Strawberry Gin will only further bolster this reputation. Flavoured gins are proving extremely popular with consumers and I believe this will hit all the right notes as the sweet flavour of fresh strawberries makes it extremely versatile for a wide range of spring/summer drinks.”
