UK: Blackwood introduces lime to 2006 Vintage Dry Gin
Scottish drinks company Blackwood Distillers has launched its 2006 Vintage Dry Gin - with twist - in the UK.
The spirit, which has been augmented by a hint of lime citrus, is now available in the country, Blackwood said today (20 April). The gin, which includes lime peel, coriander, meadowsweet, mint, sea pink and angelica, is available in selected off-trade retailers for GBP15.99 (US$32).
Blackwood creative director Tara Benson said: "Overall the new vintage's flavour is a wonderful evolution of the much-loved 2005 vintage."
Founded in 2002, Blackwood Distillers currently exports to 34 countries.
