El productor de ginebra, Old Curiosity, ha lanzado su primera ginebra festiva que cambia de color, antes de la fiebre navideña. La nueva expresión de la destilería se transforma de un tono azul pálido a un rosa vibrante cuando se mezcla con tonic water.

8 November 2018 Gin goes in the pink for Christmas Luxury gin brand, Old Curiosity, will be in the pink this Christmas with its first, colour-changing festive gin. Rather than the classic Christmas reds, this year the innovative distillery’s unique new tipple transforms from a festive blush to a vibrant pink when mixed with tonic water. With only 500 bottles of the limited edition gin hitting the market, it is likely to be the must-have drink of the season. Priced at £49.95 per 500ml bottle, it is available to buy from Harrods from today (8 November) or from Old Curiosity’s website. In addition, it is set to be a popular serve at The Balmoral Hotel’s Bar Prince throughout the festive season. The bespoke bottling gets its magical, colour-changing properties from a natural reaction which causes the PH levels of the gin to adjust when tonic is added. The gin is given a Christmas twist with ginger, cinnamon and cardamom, which are individually distilled and added to the base. The Old Curiosity Distillery is the most recent project from Hamish Martin, a Scottish herbologist and owner of the Secret Herb Garden – a specialist herb nursery on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Hamish comments: “Christmas is a time for bringing a little sparkle, and what could be more magical than a festive gin that transforms itself before your very eyes? It’s the best way to bring Christmas to life, and tastes as good as it looks. “We’re known for creating all manner of weird and wonderful colour-changing gins and we think this one, with its twist on the traditional Christmas colours, may just be our best yet. It was a drink which first turned Santa from green to red, so this year his favourite colour will definitely be pink!” Each Old Curiosity gin is made using botanicals grown, picked, dried and infused by the Secret Herb Garden team in Scotland. The distillery released its first trio of colour-changing gins in October last year, comprising Apothecary Rose, Lavender & Echinacea, and Chamomile & Cornflower. -ENDS- For more information and images, please contact: Alie Simpson or Holly Russell Pagoda Public Relations 0131 556 0770 alie.simpson@pagodapr.com or holly.russell @pagodapr.com Notes to editor: The Old Curiosity Distillery was founded in the Secret Herb Garden, a botanical nursery just outside Edinburgh. The herbs are grown, picked, dried and infused by hand, so they are guaranteed to be 100% natural. The Secret Herb Garden opened in 2014, and is the brainchild of Hamish and Liberty Martin. Hamish was a wine merchant with a passion for herbs and a dream of a magical herb garden, while Liberty was a resource manager with a love of all things vintage. Hamish studied for a Diploma in Herbology at Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh in 2013 and after securing a 7.5 acre plot of land at the foot of the Pentlands, the couple left their existing roles and set up the nursery, café and shop. The Old Curiosity Distillery launched in October 2017; born of the couple’s love of fine herbs and botanicals; their characteristics, flavours and magical properties. Old Curiosity Gin is stocked in Harrods, John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, Majestics and other retailers throughout the UK. https://www.theoldcuriosity.co.uk Instagram: @oldcuriosity

Sólo se han producido 500 botellas de la expresión limitada. A un precio de 49,95 libras esterlinas por botella de 500 ml, se puede comprar en Harrods, en el Reino Unido, o en el sitio web de Old Curiosity. Además, está previsto que se sirva en el Bar Prince del Hotel Balmoral en Edimburgo durante toda la temporada festiva.

El embotellado obtiene sus propiedades de cambio de color a partir de una reacción natural que hace que los niveles de PH de la ginebra se ajusten cuando se añade tónica. La ginebra recibe un toque navideño con jengibre, canela y cardamomo, que se destilan individualmente y se añaden a la base.

The Old Curiosity Distillery es el proyecto más reciente de Hamish Martin, un herbólogo escocés y propietario del Secret Herb Garden. Comentarios de Hamish: “La Navidad es un tiempo para traer un poco de brillo, y ¿qué puede ser más mágico que una ginebra festiva que se transforma ante tus propios ojos? Es la mejor manera de darle vida a la Navidad, y sabe tan bien como se ve. Somos conocidos por crear todo tipo de extrañas y maravillosas ginebras que cambian de color y creemos que esta, con su giro en los colores tradicionales de la Navidad, puede ser la mejor hasta ahora. Fue una bebida que primero convirtió a Papá Noel de verde a rojo, así que este año su color favorito será el rosa”.

La destilería lanzó su primer trío de ginebras que cambian de color en octubre del año pasado, compuesto por Apothecary Rose, Lavender & Echinacea, and Chamomile & Cornflower.
