Burleighs creates Pink gin, inspired by Tokyo

17 August, 2016

Burleighs, the Leicestershire-based gin producer, is releasing a Pink edition, inspired by its master distillerís trip to Tokyo.

Jamie Baxter, the producerís master distiller, discovered a range of preserved cherry blossom on a recent trip to Tokyo; he returned to the UK eager to create a Burleighs expression with a difference.

The new variant uses Burleighs traditional London dry recipe but it is distilled along with the Japanese cherry blossom, pink grapefruit, hibiscus and rose flowers, resulting in a vibrant, smooth and fresh gin, according to the company.

The limited edition gin, of which only 600 bottles will be available, is bottled in an opaque pink bottle.

Baxter said: ďTokyo is full of wonders and I have created a gin that emcompasses some of the excitement and joy that can be found in the great city.Ē

Burleighs London Dry Gin is craft distilled in Leicestershire on a copper pot still nicknamed Messy Bessy. The gin is also available in Signature, Export Strength and Distillerís Cut.†

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
