Edinburgh Gin has launched a brand new gin liqueur flavour for 2016, Plum & Madagascan Vanilla.

Described as this season’s "must-have cocktail ingredient", the Plum & Madagascan Vanilla liqueur will join Edinburgh Gin's popular family of fruit gin liqueurs; Raspberry, Elderflower and Rhubarb & Ginger.

Alex and Jane Nicol, co-founders of Edinburgh Gin, originally thought of the new recipe while picking plums at their home in Scotland.

Abundant with natural flavour, the liqueur (ABV 20%) is made from juicy Scottish plums and Madagascar vanilla.

The limited edition run will see 12,000 bottles hit shelves of John Lewis, independent drinks retailers, the Edinburgh Gin Distillery Shop at the visitor centre and the Edinburgh Gin Distillery shop online.

Edinburgh Gin’s co-founder, Alex Nicol said: “Plum & Madagascan Vanilla perfectly complements our range of popular gin-based fruit liqueurs, and we are delighted to add Plum & Vanilla to the family.

"Made with Scottish plums and Vanilla from Madagascar, this new recipe has been devised from quality ingredients, producing an opulent and indulgent fruit liqueur, great for cocktails, after dinner drinks and desserts.

As the UK’s first Plum and vanilla-based gin liqueur on the market, Edinburgh Gin is continuing to craft the Gin renaissance and be at the forefront of gin-making in the UK.”

Producers say the new liqueur is a perfect base for anyone who loves to shake up their own cocktails or those who just like sipping on cocktails, with serving suggestions including a Plum Negroni, a new twist on a Kir Royale and a Plum Collins.
