It will be presented in a bottle decorated with brightly coloured images of the new botanicals.

Payne said: “I wanted to create a gin that would be suited to lighter summer drinks and take advantage of those rarer botanicals that are less readily available.”?Beefeater London Dry Summer Edition will be available from this month for a limited period, with an rrp of £17.99.
