Brewdog Distilling has added a ‘tropical’ expression to its spirits range: Lonewolf Peach and Passionfruit Gin.
Lonewolf Peach and Passionfruit has been bottled at 40% ABV and will retail for RRP £25 (US$34) per 700ml bottle, available to purchase online at brewdog.com.
Botanicals used in the gin include Scots pine, Tuscan juniper, grapefruit and lemon peel, pink peppercorn, orris and angelica root, mace, yuzu, kaffir lime, almonds, coriander, lavender, cardamom, passion fruit and white peach.
The gin is recommended mixed with tonic water, over ice, and garnished with a slice of peach.
Flavour wise, the gin is said to offer ‘mouth-watering tropical notes’ with a ‘juniper bite’.
Steven Kersley, head distiller at Brewdog Distilling Co, said: “Launching a peach and passion fruit gin might seem a bit of a curve ball for Lonewolf as this flavour combination takes our classic London Dry in a whole new direction.
“It came about from the success of our Lonewolf 12 Gins of Christmas advent calendar, which included a white peach gin.
“Feedback on the peach was really positive so we decided to play around with complementary flavours, finding that passion fruit added bold tropical notes and yuzu really dialled up the citrus bite alongside grapefruit and lemon peel. These all sit alongside the synonymous juniper notes of Lonewolf gin.
“The result is a serious summer crowd pleaser, best served with tonic and a slice of fresh peach. Once our Brewdog bars reopen soon we’re seeing this one being a big hit.”
In May last year, Brewdog Distilling added a cactus and lime-flavoured gin to its Lonewolf spirits range. The gin received a Gold medal in The Gin Masters 2020 blind-tasting competition, along with Lonewolf London Dry gin.
The Scottish producer also moved into hard seltzers last summer with the launch of Clean and Press.
