PUERTO de Indias Strawberry Gin is eye-catching for its colour alone, while its fruity flavour is also leaving aficionados of the juniper-based spirit tickled pink.
But those are by no means its only credentials.
In the space of a year, Spanish manufacturers Alcores de Carmona have rung up €5 million in orders for their pink gin, which they now export internationally to the UK, Portugal and Holland.
Part of its key to success is the revolutionary automated production method, which has been streamlined to turn out 12,000 bottles daily.
It’s also highly rated for its locally-sourced ingredients – strawberries from Huelva and herbs from the Andalucian countryside.
As a change from traditional gin and tonic, food critics recommend adding fresh strawberries and juniper for extra oomph.
