A Gin Bouquet Is All We Want For Valentine's Day

A Gin Bouquet Is All We Want For Valentine's Day

Forget the chocs and a dozen red roses, this Valentine's Day we've got our hearts set on... gin.

The geniuses at Edinburgh Gin have created a thing of beauty with their gin bouquets, which are a winning combination of a 70cl bottle of delicious gin and a matching hand-tied bouquet of flowers.

Gifts don't come much better than that.

Each bouquet takes inspiration from the botanical ingredients in the gin, from the citrus-fresh flavours of dried orange and lime to stems of rhubarb and lavender.

There are three eye-catching variations to choose from.

First up, there's the blush-pink gin for Valentine's Day, a refreshing floral blend made with ingredients like ivy rose, pale pink carnation, eucalyptus and other seasonal foliages.

For traditionalists, there's the Classic Edinburgh Gin variation. Described as a "clean, zesty" recipe, it combines ivory avalanche roses and peach carnation with blue thistle, lavender and pine cone.
