Gooseberry Gin Heralds Start of Summer

Gooseberry Gin Liqueur 17%

There’s no more truly summer British fruit than the old gooseberry with its bright green hue and bitter sweet taste. Whether you love or loathe them, liquid deli Demijohn has a whole new take on gooseberries as it launches it 2013 new Gooseberry Gin Liqueur.

As a very original drink Gooseberry Gin Liqueur is best served long with tonic over ice and a slice of lemon – Demijohn has called this summer cocktail Evoque as it certainly evoques a mood of Summer long fun!

Made especially for Demijohn by two retired PE teachers in East Lothian, near Edinburgh, the Gooseberry Gin combines British gooseberries with dry London Gin and sugar. The result is a light green, slightly peppery alcoholic version of heaven.

Angus Ferguson, MD of Demijohn says: “Gooseberries, like many traditional British fruits are having a revival as more allotments and kitchen gardens spring up. They epitomise the British summer, which is exactly what this irresistible summer drink does, but in a delightful, alcoholic form. Launched this summer in anticipation of some sunshine, Demijohn Gooseberry Gin and Tonic provides the perfect summer aperitif or party cocktail.”

Gooseberry Gin Liqueur 17% is priced at £5.10/100ml. It is available from or their shops in York, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
