5 Best Pink Gins to Buy in 2021
Pink gins are incredibly popular at the moment, with more and more gin producers adding quality offerings to their gin collections.
Originally made with dry gin and a splash of Angostura bitters, now, the variety of pinks gins available is wonderfully extensive, with the pink colours, from pale blush to vibrant fuchsia, coming from a whole host of red summer fruits, berries, and other flavoursome ingredients.
We love pink gin here at Drinks Aisle because it is fun, versatile, and often evocative of the summer - a staple of many of our favourite summer cocktails.
With so many quality offerings to choose from, pink gin is our top pick for treating your mum this Mother's Day. Here are some of our favourites, plus we've included some pink gin cocktail recipes and great discounts too.
