Found 14th Jul
Not a fan myself but never seen it before so posting if it helps someone out
This was in Tesco Rugeley but should obviously be national normal white sticker.

When making a Pink Gin is whether you want it ‘in’ or ‘out’. To be ‘in’ means moving the Angostura bitters around in the glass before adding Gordon’s London Dry Gin. To be ‘out’ means swirling bitters in the glass and then pouring them away, leaving just a small residue. Served in a Martini glass, sometimes garnished with lemon, Gordon’s Pink Gin has an elegant appearance that will impress your friends.

No idea sorry but it was definitely pink

"

A delicious pink gin that balances the refreshing taste of Gordon’s with the natural sweetness of raspberry and strawberry, with the tang of redcurrant."

"Pink Gin is a cocktail made fashionable in England in the mid-19th century, consisting of Plymouth gin and a dash of Angostura bitters, a dark red bitters that makes the whole drink pinkish. Lemon rind is also commonly used as a garnish, with the citrus oils subtly complementing the flavour."

It reminds me of when I used to play cricket for the works team - after the game we would order 10 pints of bitter - but the superior, pretentious member of the team would say - "I'll just have a pink gin - not too heavy on the Angostura"

He was an OK chap really

Gordon's is a vile gin. Good price if you like it though so hot from me.

Reading the thread it appears that this gin is missing the angostura completely. You're friend would be horrified to find the colour is provided by fruit in this case!

Mortified - the way to make a pink gin is to put the Angostura bitters in the glass - swirl it around then throw it away - then put the gin in. As a joke once we had a barman do it with blackcurrent juice instead - he didn't notice the difference! As I said - pretentious.

It is regular Gordans gin, sweetened with raspberries and strawberries. I enjoyed it, but unless you love sweet drinks, this is not the gin for you.

My husband purchased this the other day and I love it at £13 its a steal.

What's the alcohol content??

37%

I couldn't resist at £13. Just to try it.

Smells nice, very floral but tastes like normal Gordon's (paint stripper) but sweeter.
