What a week for launches, with a couple unexpected names gracing our list:
Gordon’s Spot of Elderflower gin is a surprising new release, and should be an ideal companion to their line of pre-mixed Gordon’s dash of elderflower gin and tonics. Remember in a G&T, it’s a “dash”; in a bottle it’s a “spot.” [Gin marketing science!]
Vikre Distillery from Duluth Minnesota sought to capture the feeling of the boreal north with their lineup of (three!) gins, including Cedar and Spruce.
Wine and Gin have been getting together more often. Folks in the UK now have access to one of their very own, Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin is now available in the UK. The Riesling in this batch has been added post-distillation.
Brockman’s isn’t necessarily new, but it will launch in the U.S. for the first time this month.
Michael Godard is probably best known as an artist, but he now has his own eopnymous gin on the market as well. The gin is distilled in Holland and imported by Pay Dirt Brands stateside.
International Wine Services has launched Squires Gin on trade in the UK.
