Gin Kitchen launches colour-changing expression

2nd August, 2018 by Owen Bellwood

Surrey distillery The Gin Kitchen has launched a colour-changing expression that turns pink when mixed with tonic water.

Blushing Monkey turns from translucent to pink when mixed with tonic water

Blushing Monkey Pink Gin is initially translucent, but when mixed with tonic turns a “pearlescent pink”.

The Gin Kitchen founders, Kate Gregory and Helen Muncie, said: “It’s an amethyst portal to the divine. The love child of our mischievous ‘Gutsy Monkey’ and a bashful cluster of sweet black grapes. It creates a gorgeously floral gin with a delightful sweet (but not too sweet) twist.

“Our favourite serve is to add the tonic first so the gin forms a neon candyfloss cloud.”

The colour-changing expression has initially been launched in on-trade venues in Dorking, England, and will be released in the off-trade in the coming weeks.

Blushing Monkey Pink Gin joins the brand’s spirits portfolio, which includes Gutsy Monkey Winter Gin, Dancing Dragontail Summer Gin and Eternal Absinthe.

Dorking-based The Gin Kitchen is not the first brand to introduce an expression that changes colour. Earlier this year, Edinburgh-based Old Curiosity launched a range of expressions that change colour when mixed with tonic water.
