Over the past few years, the gin industry has grown rapidly. Back in 2018, a record year for gin growth reported exports which exceeded £567 million. Since then, the gin industry has become even more profitable with an increased number of distilleries opting to infuse their gin to create a brand new flavour. Infused gins are increasingly popular with customers and most bars in the UK will stock a few of the most popular options. With so many people now drinking infused gins, we ask – what are the most popular infused gins in 2020? Read on to find out!
Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin
Sipsmith is one of the leading gin brands in the UK and they have a range of options that customers enjoy. Their Orange and Cacao Gin blends notes of soft orange and cacao to create a delightful taste and smell. This isn’t a flavour combination that you would typically choose for a gin but Sipsmith has managed to find the perfect balance and create something really special.
Isle of Wight Distillery Mermaid Pink Gin
When infused gins first became popular, pink gin was a go-to for many. There are a few large brands that offer their own take on a ‘pink gin’ including Gordon’s which is probably the best known. However, in 2020, it appears that the Isle of Wight Distillery Mermaid Pink Gin is leading the way and proving extremely popular. This gin is infused with strawberry, samphire and coriander. It even has a stunningly designed bottle that creates the ‘mermaid effect’.
Boë Violet Gin
Another popular infused gin trend that we are seeing in 2020 along with pink gins is violet gin. The most popular brand appears to be Boë with their own take on the trend – Boë Violet Gin. This gin has been perfectly infused with violet petals and has a sugary taste. If you have ever tried Parma Violet sweets, you’ll recognise this taste immediately. Typically, this gin is mixed with lemonade or an Indian Tonic. This is commonly stocked in bars across the UK.
Persie Dachshund Gin Liqueur
The final of our popular infused gins of 2020 is one that is close to our hearts. Persie Dachshund Gin Liqueur is created in Scotland by Glenshee Craft Distillers.
