The mood ring of beverages is here thanks to Twenty Third Street Distillery’s new colour changing gin.
The gin is the first in a new range of products, a range underpinned by “creativity and curiosity.”
At first blue, the gin transforms to a bright violet with the addition of tonic or highly acidic garnishes.
The gin is steeped with Butterfly Pea Flower, making it high in pH and reactive to acidity.
The Twenty Third Street Violet Gin is a pure Australian sugarcane spirit, much like the classic Signature Gin.
It is distilled with traditional juniper and eight Australian botanicals including lemon myrtle, finger and blood lime, pepper berry and native wattle seed.
In terms of taste, think the familiar hint of juniper, juicy lingering zest, and peppery spice.
“We wanted to create a Gin with some added theatre, in a time where people are looking for some fun, the flair of Violet Gin provides a great choice for the novice at home mixologist,” says Gabrielle Millane, Assistant Brand Manager.
To experience the rather magical-sounding transformation, add 30mL Violet Gin to a glass with ice and top with Tonic Water.
To garnish, why not try dehydrated orange and rosemary.
The Violet Gin will officially launch on May 23 and will be available at the Distillery in Renmark, 23rd on Melbourne in North Adelaide, and online via Sippify.
