Looking forward to that first drink with friends when lockdown is finally eased? It might be a while before you can head to a pub or bar together, but BLOOM Gin is here to help with two, new, delicious flavoured gins, BLOOM Passionfruit & Vanilla Blossom Gin and BLOOM Raspberry & Rose Gin inspired by two of the nation’s favourite cocktails, available at Tesco from 26th May (RRP £25).
The BLOOM Fruit & Floral Fusions collection includes the Pornstar-Martini-inspired BLOOM Passionfruit & Vanilla Blossom Gin (40% ABV). With deliciously soft notes of vanilla combining with the lush sweetness of passionfruit, this gin is perfect for those looking for an easy way to replicate the bar experience from home. Simply add a premium tonic water for a hint of those fruity and floral flavours in your usual G&T or get experimental as you channel your inner bartender…
