If you’re in the market for a new autumn tipple then good news, Tesco is selling a blackberry flavoured Beefeater gin.

The supermarket is offering the exclusive drink which is fruity-flavoured and purple.

If a gin and tonic is your go-to drink but you fancy a bit of a change then you’ll enjoy the colour as it stays a light purple when mixed with tonic water.

According to the booze distiller, the drink tastes of classic gin with hints of juniper and citrus, and has a ‘long, rich finish’.

Each bottle is 700ml bottles will set you back £18.99.

Though that is more expensive than a plain bottle of Beefeater gin, which is cheapest at Waitrose where it’s on offer for £14, it has the new blackberry flavouring.

Good for those who’re missing the fruity summer taste.

Tesco is also offering other flavours of Beefeater gin such as pink strawberry and blood orange which are cheapest at the supermarket.

At Tesco, they cost £16.50 but are pricier elsewhere.

Other flavoured gins usually get their taste by mixing ingredients to the spirits later on in the process.

But Beefeater’s version is unlike the others as it’s made by distilling the gin base with natural blackberry flavours.

The Beefeater drink has a 37.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) content. Other gin liqueurs only contain around 20% ABV.

The drink will only be around for a year and is being exclusively sold at Tesco both online and in stores from 9 September. You can find your nearest store here.

If you’re in the mood for fruity-flavoured gin then you might want to get your hands on the Flagingo Electric Raspberry gin which is flavoured with blue and Scottish raspberries.

Zymurgorium, home of the original Parma Violet gin, has launched an electric blue raspberry flavoured shimmery gin which turns pink when you add a mixer to it.

Chin chin.
