You Can Now Buy A Jaffa Cake-Flavoured Gin
Yep, Master of Malt's Jaffa Cake Gin celebrates the classic flavour combo of rich chocolate and citrus-fresh orange, and is distilled with oranges, fresh orange peel, cocoa powder and actual Jaffa Cakes.
Allow us to give you a full breakdown of this taste sensation.
The opening flavour notes are rather like a zingy orange marmalade, which is soon overtaken by a deep chocolate undertone. Elsewhere in the mix are hints of vanilla-rich cake and almond, along with that hint of juniper.
Mmm. Anyone else's mouth watering RN?
The central flavour - or 'palate' - is pure Jaffa Cake-y goodness. Seriously, the resemblance is uncanny.
To finish, the orangey notes fade to comforting hot cocoa with a subtle hint of bitter dark chocolate.
If you don't have a sweet tooth, worry not. The gin is delicately sweet rather than sickly or liqueur-like.
