Personally I have not tried an alcoholic pink gin, just so you know, I have no point of reference for this review. Google tells me that a pink gin is usually a regular gin with some fruit profiles added. Typically berries hence the pink hue. Here in this Lyre’s we are getting the pink from a little Allura Red Colour [E129]… nice!
Here I must reference my post on non-alcoholic spirits and note that Lyre’s products are not made in the way that a typical gin is in a distillery, they are more like a cordial, created to replicate the flavour of the spirit. So these do have sugar and cals unlike their distilled counterparts.
On the nose this has a very strong strawberry scent. Mixed with tonic I would describe the flavour as fairly basic. Not offensive, just lacking any complexity. The faux strawberry flavour carries through and there is a subtle bit of juniper there, but very subtle. I do get a very ‘Lyre’s” flavour. I can’t put my finger on it but there is something that is very similar about the whole range. If you like their gin and a you’re up for a bit of sweet then you will love this. Personally I wouldn’t be bothering, especially when there are so many delicious, complex distilled spirits available.
