McQueen Gin has partnered with supermarket chain Morrisons to launch a new addition to its range, which will be available in 250 stores UK-wide.

McQueen Gin’s limited-edition Black Cherry and Vanilla flavour is the latest creation from the award-winning distillery, following the success of the Super Premium Dry Gin already stocked in stores across the country.

A retail exclusive for Morrisons UK, the striking purple spirit offers tasting notes of sour cherry and spice complemented with a subtle hint of smooth vanilla.

The Callander-based distillery, which has developed a reputation for creating experimental flavour combinations and world-first gins has already secured contracts with major retailers throughout the country including Aldi, Sainsbury’s and Asda.

Dale McQueen, co-founder, McQueen Gin, said: “We’re pleased to continue our strong working relationship with Morrisons to launch the Black Cherry and Vanilla Gin following the success of our Super Premium Dry earlier this year.

“This versatile spirit can be enjoyed over ice with premium tonic or shaken in a martini and is the perfect addition to any gin lover’s collection. We’re delighted to bring another one of our adventurous gins to Morrisons shelves across the UK, it really is the ‘cherry on top’ of our fantastic range.”

Mike Kenny, Buying Manager, Spirits, Morrisons UK, said: “We’re proud to work with an innovative company like McQueen Gin as we’re always looking for unique products to add to our range.

“The Super Premium Dry Gin was an instant hit earlier this year, so we’re excited for our customers to try one of McQueen’s limited-edition flavoured products.”
