Parma Violet Gin Is Now A Thing

Parma Violet Gin Is Now A Thing

Parma Violet Gin Is Now A Thing

I think it’s safe to say that gin is the current in thing. Its pretentious glasses, its fruity garnish have revolutionised our choice of alcohol.

The flavours available are certainly eccentric in some cases! Who’d have thought you’d be able to get a Yorkshire Tea flavoured gin available. This is the sort of gin I would no doubt opt for.

There is now one flavour available however, that has changed everything. One flavour that offers a passage to our childhood, and a seductive aroma.

I am of course talking about Parma Violet gin, Zymurgorium Manchester Sweet Violet Gin.

I have had the pleasure of sampling this truly wonderful concoction, and can confirm it really is the dogs bollocks. I recommend with lemonade. I did then order a real ale immediately after, as drinking pink gin in my local drew the wrong sort of attention.

This simply stunning beverage is collecting impressive reviews across the board, with DrinkSupremarket providing the following review.

“Sweet violet heaven made for the gods? Well not exactly, but a wonderful liqueur nonetheless. Great replacement for violet based liqueurs as the role of 20 botanicals really do provide a unique taste. Enjoy any how you like.”

If that’s not enough to tempt you, this description on the drinks website will almost certainly arouse you.

“Sweet violet heaven made for the gods? Well not exactly, but a wonderful liqueur nonetheless. Great replacement for violet based liqueurs as the role of 20 botanicals really do provide a unique taste. Enjoy any how you like.”

It does carry a premium price however, with a bottle costing just over £25, I wouldn’t recommend for a casual pre-drinking session.

The gin is the latest in a long line of slightly different gin flavours.#

Seaweed Gin

This Gin is made with handpicked seaweed from the Celtic coast. Funnily enough this has been recommended with seafood.

Anty Gin

This is the worlds first gin, which contains insects as a core ingredient. Supposedly the ants give a citrusy flavour. God knows.

Nettle Gin

Don’t be worried, it won’t sting you. But this gin infuses nettles with coriander, to give a satisfying, refreshing taste.

 

Cocoa Gin

Hot chocolate flavoured gin, wow. This smooth sounding beverage offers the inclusion of roasted cocoa shells, and macadamia nuts.

With Valentines Day just around the corner however, it may be worth bearing in mind as a great gift for the other half!
