Warner’s has bolstered its gin portfolio with the launch of a new raspberry-flavoured gin inspired by the bounty of the British countryside.
The “fresh, vibrant” 40% ABV gin contains pure raspberry and blackberry juice, and elderflowers hand-picked from the hedgerows on Falls Farm, the brand’s birthplace.
Warner’s Raspberry’s “naturally sweet yet refreshingly tart” notes of real fruit, combined with a smooth London Dry Gin base, produces a ruby pink gin that is “reminiscent of home-cooked jam”.
The spirit is suggested paired with Fever-Tree Mediterranean tonic water, completed with a garnish of blackberries and a fresh sprig of mint.
As part of the launch, a charity partnership has been forged with the People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES), with Warner’s donating 25p per bottle sold to support hedgerow habitats in Britain.
PTES and Warner’s will work together to improve hedgerows in the local area, as well as nationwide, through active conservation, with the aim of safeguarding up to 130 conservation priority species that rely on hedgerows for food and shelter.
Warner’s founder Tom Warner said: “We’ve had an epic response to our new Raspberry Gin and we have a feeling that it’s going to be as popular as the gin that started it all for us: Rhubarb.
“The pink in our gins are as nature intended – we don’t add anything artificial. You can taste the beautiful balance of real fruit and sweetness in every drop.
“We started growing raspberries alongside our five acres of botanicals this year at the farm and are right in the middle of a bumper harvest.
“We’re always striving to be self-sufficient with our ingredients, from planting elderflower trees to extending our apiary, so that we both aid biodiversity and keep up with demand.
“With epic farm grown ingredients and real graft and passion, we have always strived to create extraordinary liquids that bring people together. Being united in spirit with your loved ones: that’s what it’s all about.”
Warner’s Raspberry Gin is the eighth core product from the family-owned distillery on Falls Farm in Northamptonshire. It joins Harrington Dry Gin, the original Rhubarb Gin, Elderflower Gin, London Dry Gin, Lemon Balm Gin, Honeybee Gin and Sloe Gin.
The new Raspberry Gin is available from October in over 3,000 on and off trade stockists nationwide.
