Celebrate World Gin Day with Boodles Pink Gin

As well as giving you a flavour of some of our favourite gins from around the UK, we also wanted to put the spotlight on a beautiful new pink gin: Boodles Rhubarb and Strawberry.

A modern take on an English tradition, this gin is made by infusing the classic Boodles London Dry Gin with the taste of spring-crop garden rhubarb and fresh, juicy strawberries. The result is a glorious pink gin with a sweet and tart fruity flavour. 

Here are some of our favourite pink gin cocktails to round off this gin-filled weekend.
