China reduces duty on Whisky by Seeking money

China has dropped the duty on importing whisky from 10% to 5% from 1st Dec. Every bit helps sales.

Pink gin, red gin, green gin, orange ginwho the fudge cares! The average Joe/Jolene certainly doesn't. Gawd, they'd drink brown turpentine after watching the first act on Britain's got talent.

The world's largest producer of spirits is a solid long term investment. Currently 3.92% of my wad.

Just realised from all your comments that this wondrous new concoction existed.From my favourite inf source Tesco I gleaned:
' Gordon's Premium Pink Distilled Gin was inspired by Gordon's original 1880 pink gin recipe. Crafted to balance the refreshing taste of Gordon's with the sweetness of raspberries and strawberries with the tang of redcurrant. Made using only the highest quality ingredients and only natural flavourings to provide an authentic real berry flavour.
Gordon's Premium Pink Distilled Gin has been created to offer a sweeter and more accessible way to enjoy a gin and tonic. To set the occasion serve in a large wine glass, filled with ice and garnished with fresh strawberries.
For something a little different, try our Gordon's Pink Spritz - mix 2 parts Gordon's Pink with 2 parts lemonade and 1 part prosecco. Serve in a large wine glass filled with ice, garnish with fresh strawberries and raspberries.'
Yo, sounds a blast - that should spice up a cheap drop of prosecco and lemonade at the ladies lunch no end - and all those natural ingredients too (not so sure about the lemonade).
Irresisteebel !

pics, you sound like the Mary Berry (see what I did there?) of the alcohol world.

I have a sloe bush outside my front garden and might give it a go.

Games -- we could have a great Christmas Get Pxssed Up Day. Or off, as gin is a depressant isn't it?

Picstloup,

Great stuff, m8. For the lazybones out there, you don't need to slash each sloe you can just put 'em in the freezer in a bag overnight. That'll break the skin, which is what you need to get the colour and flavour out, no worries.

I have a vague memory of making sloe "gin" with some kinda neat basic ethanol rather than gin tel quel. Make sure not to use methanol which will blind you and ruin the Boxing Day meet.

Damsons are a fine alternative to sloes.

LKH on the flybridge or you could buy Gordon's sloe gin

Pick a pound of so of sloes, round about now, or anyway after the first frost. Slash each sloe with a sharp knife and place in an empty clear bottle. Add a pound of sugar, two cloves and a drop of almond essence, and fill the bottle with gin (any old cheap muck will do, don't waste a good one). Leave undisturbed for a couple of days, and then shake vigoursly. The liquid will turn a glorious rich pink colour. Shake every day for 30 days - the liquid will gradually get darker - and then leave for 30 days. It will be delicious by Christmas and perfect for the hipflask at the Boxing Day meet.

'Diageo risks making Gordon's a laughing stock with this girlyboy launch. It'll become the Blossom Hill of gin if he's not careful'

Lol...I thought it was already LKH, give me a Hendricks or Bloom anyday - anyway captain, ginger over ice with a large wedge of lime squeezed in for good measure - that's my poison!

I suppose this is the big company response to the craft gin craze, DGE think they are missing out. Would you believe, there is an ft.com video on craft gin, and the Norfolk Club to which I belong and which is so far behind the curve has decided to hold a gin tasting.

I encountered some proferred raspberry flavoured gin a few weeks ago, disappointing it was, but maybe there is a new audience of millenials, chavs et al who think gin is old hat so haven't tried it and are now discovering gin having being seduced by the craft, artisinal hype.

A really cold G&T is one of the best pre lunch aperitifs IMO, and en passant I tried one the other day with the bog standard Schweppes tonic swiftly followed by another with the much touted Fevertree. I was expecting to prefer the Fevertree but no I thought the maligned Schweppes was better.

Speaking of which, at 6pm GMT its time to smite the prune.

"... It will serve them right if people say the same thing about this gin innovation horlicks."

What! Horlicks flavoured gin!?! It gets worse...

Can't see that catching on... though it may have some appeal in the "night cap" market...

Bill,

"It is not Pink Gin... but merely a gin that happens to be pink - there is a world of cultural and social history between the two."

Absolutely right, m8! Diageo took a lot of stick a couple of years ago for constantly introducing weird flavoured Smirnoffs but clearly have not learned the lesson. It will serve them right if people say the same thing about this gin innovation horlicks.

At the same time it is sometimes the case that one can innovate successfully with an existing brand. A couple of years ago, at the Treatt AGM, they handed out miniature bottles of honey whiskey liqueur. Clearly they were hoping to sell their honey flavouring to big drinks companies. Anyhoo and whatever, that stuff was absolutely delicious. I still have the empty bottle which has a cute little picture of a bee on it [how sad is that?].
