Drinks specialist Hammonds is capitalising on the popularity of flavoured gins by introducing Mombasa Lemon Edition Gin to the UK market.
The 37.5% ABV triple distilled expression has been infused with high-quality Mediterranean lemons and other selected natural ingredients to create a “fresh tasting” citrus gin.
Mombasa Club was created in 1885 by and for officers of the British East Africa Protectorate. It was the first private members club set up during the Victorian era and became a place where its members kept lively gatherings and exchanged news while enjoying their Mombasa Club gin & tonics.
Lemon Edition will sit alongside Mombasa Club, Colonel’s Reserve and Strawberry Edition in the brand’s current UK portfolio.
Jonathan Hammond, managing director of Hammonds, said: “What a refreshing gin! I like it served with a light tonic and a fresh slice of lemon, ingredients I always have at hand.
“We are experiencing huge growth in our flavoured gins as UK drinkers continue to enjoy the exciting innovation in the market. This fresh lemon variant is sure to sell well.”
