Makes a change as most alcohol deals exclude Scotland but this one is only available in Scotland - for the moment anyway. On sale for £19.99 a bottle.

Aldi are selling a colour change gin by McQueens Distillery (Based in Callander, Scotland) It's Forest Fruit flavour and is blue in the bottle but when you add anything acidic, it magically changes colour from blue to a purply-pink so changes as soon as you put a drop of lemon or lime juice in it or tonic water or lemonade.

Its all natural ingredients that make it change colour too as it's made from the Asian Butterfly Pea flower's petals which is ph reactive.

Comes is a really nice embossed glass bottle as well and is on sale in all of Scotland's 81 Aldi stores while stock lasts and hopefully in the rest of the country soon as I really want to try it!

Will that work for non-alcoholic drinks? Thinking kids party stuff?

Yes it does but quite expensive apparently. It’s safe as they make tea out of it also. It’s called b’lure if you want to look it up
All comes out the same colour though
Is this endorsed by Steve or any member of the Hollyoak’s family?
If it's £19.99 in Scotland it would be a tenner here
Not interested if it's got anything to do with haggis.

Absolutely! As long as you add something acidic, like a squeeze of lemon juice, it’ll react and turn a shade of purple.

You could try rubbing lemon juice on the inside of clear plastic cups, that way you could pour your blue tinted liquid into them and they should magically change colour.
Colour changing !! drink it straight from the bottle ( brown paper bag optional ) and must of us would turn green just before the carrots appear.
Does this go with Bucky?
Hmmmm not sure. What colour does it go when I add my iron bru?
If you get the chance to try it...don’t bother, it’s the most under-whelming gin I’ve ever tried. It’s a very pale blue in the bottle, which turns a very pale pink when tonic is added. I can’t taste any forest fruits in it, just the tonic, and I used the recommended 1 measure gin to 2 measures tonic that is suggested on the wee card that comes with it! I even bought and used the blueberries and raspberries as garnish as suggested. The bottle is nicely embossed but I think they’ve put a premium price on it because of that, and the novelty factor, rather than make a gin that stands out for its taste. Just my opinion, and I’m certainly not a gin expert, by any means. Edited just to say that the £19.99 a ‘bottle’ is for 50cl ;
