Independent Scottish start-up Boë Gin is adding “a tropical dimension” to its portfolio with the launch of a new passion fruit-flavoured gin.
Described as vibrant in colour as well as taste, the 41.5% ABV blends clean citrus peel and spice of Boë’s premium Scottish London Dry Gin, with a “kick of passion fruit”.
According to its maker, the gin, which “conjures images of sunshine and fiesta spirit on Brazil’s Copacabana Beach” is ideal for cocktails, or simply served over ice with tonic and a twist of orange.
Boë Passion’s tapered glass bottle features botanist-style etched illustrations of the gin’s signature ingredient – the passion fruit plant and flower.
Last year, Boë Gin added a violet gin to its range, which has gained national listings with all leading UK wholesalers and is a firm favourite in the Scottish on-trade.
Alongside its Scottish Gin, Violet and the new Passion variant, the producer also offers a number of gin liquers: Boë Peach & Hibiscus, Boë Scottish Bramble and Boë Spiced Orange.
Andrew Richardson, director of Boë Gin, said: “The overwhelming response to Boë Violet was a gear change for us, and our master distiller has worked hard to create a new product that is both amazing to look at and delicious to sip.
“With passion fruit a popular flavour in cocktails such as a Porn Star Martini, it just made sense for us to create gin with the fruit.
“Boë Passion Gin delivers on the authentic brave flavours, sensational aroma and vibrant colours that our customers expect and proactively seek out.
“By bringing a tropical, floral element to the spiced warmth and fresh orange zest characteristics associated with Boë Gin, we have created a striking new flavour profile in the Boë Gin family.”
