Aldi Is Launching Limited Edition Colour-Changing Gin And We Can't Wait
While we're in love with pretty much any gin that comes our way - whether that's a summery strawberries and cream number or a fruity pink elderflower and grapefruit one - we're always up for an exciting twist when we see one.
That includes this incredible colour-changing gin soon to be launched in Aldi, which looks absolutely magical.
The Forest Fruits colour-changing gin from McQueen Gin morphsfrom a pale sapphire to pink when tonic (or any other acidic mixer or garnish, for that matter) is added. That's because the drink is distilled with the blue petals of the Asian butterfly flower, which amzingly changes colour when the PH levels are adjusted.
The gin will be on sale in Scottish Aldi stores for just £19.99 - though let's hope it gets rolled out to the rest of the UK, too!
Dale McQueen, Managing Director and Co-Founder of McQueen Gin, said: "Not only does our new artisan gin taste great, but it also brings a little bit of theatre to gin o'clock. Perfect to share with friends, it's a delicious fruity gin with a difference.
"Add a squeeze of lime first and see what shade of pink the gin goes, then add the tonic and it will change again.
He added: "As a small craft distillery our partnership with ALDI is very valuable to us. This contract alone is worth £110,000 to the distillery.
"We're very proud to be working with them to bring this product to consumers up and down the country, giving them the chance to engage in the purest of gin experience, with just the right touch of magic."
Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director, ALDI Scotland said: "We're always looking for new and innovative products, and this is a fantastic addition to our range of Scottish Gins. It is our second collaboration with artisan distiller McQueen Gin, and we're confident it is going to be very popular.
"We're proud to champion local suppliers and already have some more exciting collaborations with McQueen Gin in the pipeline."
If you can't get your hands on a bottle, in the meantime there's always a similar product on the shelves at M&S.
The supermarket recently launched a duo of British Rose and British Lavender infused gins, both of which also change colour when you add the tonic.
Each costing £25 for 50cl, the British Rose dry gin goes from pale gold to a vibrant pink, while the British Lavender dry gin goes from purple to pink.
