While the classic gin has made a cocktail comeback, coloured gin is certainly having a moment especially as we head into the holiday season.

Over in the UK flavoured, gins are the fastest-growing segment of the gin market growing around 40 per cent in a single year.

That’s pretty impressive for a classic cocktail mixer with a twist.

But since pink gins and sweet fruit-infused gins hit the scene the popularity of the drink has surged even further.

Now, distillers are experimenting with even more flavours giving the popular drink even more appeal.

“Our customers have definitely embraced flavoured gins and we’re so excited to have new gins from Mayfair, Pure Origin and Masons of Yorkshire products on the shelf for summer,” Coles Liquor Merchandise General manager Brad Gorman says.

“Flavoured gins are now a very important part of the gin market in the United Kingdom and are challenging some of the more traditional London dry gins in popularity around the world.”

He predicts mixologists will be experimenting with new gin flavours to create summer cocktail flavours we’ve never tasted before.

Citrus, bramble and rhubarb and yuzu flavours are coming in hot this summer to spice things up.

And there’s more to come in 2022, with Coles Liquor set to launch the Masons of Yorkshire Gin range including a Tea Edition Gin infused with the flavours of England’s favourite cuppa, and a Pear and Pink Peppercorn blend.

So what’s the latest flavour sensation to hit the cocktail bar this summer? Check out some of the newest, boldest and tastiest gins you need to try these holidays.

Pure Origin Bramble Gin - $60

This is one of two newly created gin flavours from Pure Origin. The richly-coloured combination is made up of juniper, lemon, and berry compote sweetness.

The bold new flavour is a must-try for any lover of gin.

Mayfair Blood Orange and Yuzu Gin - $54

This carefully hand-designed gin has been made by the gin distiller of the year using a carefully-crafted recipe.

The award-winning distiller was given the top spot by the prestigious International Spirits Challenge in 2020.

Throughout the creation of the new flavour, Coles Liquor worked closely with the Mayfair team to develop a rich pomegranate-coloured spirit that is set to be a real show-stopper this Christmas.

Whitley Neill Rhubarb & Ginger Gin - $50

Care to be transported to the English countryside? That’s exactly what inspired the flavour of this little number. The rhubarb offers a tart crisp edge to the smooth classic gin.

The ginger gives it that extra kick that warms the pallet - making it a full-bodied gin choice.

Manly Spirits Coastal Citrus Gin - $69

Nothing says summer like a coastal-inspired gin! Using a combination of fresh lemon flavours with sea parsley, it’s hard to go past the refreshing taste.

Although this is a small batch distilled gin, it’s well worth looking for and adding to your cocktail list this Christmas.

Pure Origin Tasmanian Pink Gin - $60

This delicate new drink offers the taste of subtle raspberry flavours mixed with the scent of a light bouquet of red roses.

The pretty little combination means this gin tastes as good as it looks - even when it’s not mixed in with a cocktail.
