This Gin Tastes Just Like Mince Pies And It's Perfect For Christmas

This Gin Tastes Just Like Mince Pies And It's Perfect For Christmas

Tesco is selling a gin that apparently tastes just like mince pies, just in time for Christmas.

The 20 per cent liqueur from TW Kempton is made from botanical gin with spiced fruit flavouring - and people on the internet certainly have mixed feelings.

It's available to buy in 600 Tesco stores and online for £14 for a 50cl bottle and the Tesco website suggests it should be served with tonic or lemonade for a delicious long drink.

A Facebook user posted it in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains group telling others of her mince-pie drink findings.

Others were as excited.

One said: "Sounds nice for the winter nights," as another added: "Yes!!!!! I'm definitely up for trying!!!! Christmas in a bottle."

A third agreed: "Mmmm yummy!!! Xx a blanket and a glass of that! X"

But some Facebook users were disgusted at the thought of drinking something that tasted like mince pies. One wrote: "That's a nope from me. xxx"

Another chipped in: "Yuk don't like the idea of that lol" [sic].

And a third really made their feelings clear, by simply posting the vomiting emoji in response to the Facebook post.

If you are all over the sound of this Christmas tipple, you might like other festive gins too.

Gin Tales is serving up a 50cl Christmas Pudding Gin on Not On The High Street for £39, which is described as "a beautiful gin infusion with oozy boozy raisins, cherries, nutmeg and lip-smacking lemon."

Edinburgh Gin also has a festive option, aptly named Christmas Gin which notes that it is "made with two classic Christmassy botanicals - frankincense and myrrh". It is £34.95 for a 70cl bottle.

If you have a very sweet tooth though, perhaps Eden Mill's Candy Cane Christmas Gin is more your vibe? It is described as "sweet on the palate, with a subtle juniper resin leading to a warmer, rich minty character with hints of light berry fruits."

And for £30 for 70cl, you get most bang for your buck.

We almost forgot it was only September for a second...
