From rosé to vermouth, blush-coloured drinks have soared in popularity in the last few years, particularly when it comes to gin. Using a variety of botanicals and flavourings to colour the spirit, pink gins range from fruity and sweet liqueurs to delicate dry numbers. They’re surprisingly versatile – use them in G&Ts, spritzes and negronis.

The best pink gins

Mirabeau Dry Gin, £35/70cl, Maison Mirabeau

Côtes de Provence rosé wine producer use their own grape spirit and Provençal botanicals to create this elegant pale pink gin. Soft and rounded in character, it's heady with floral tones of rose and lavender, subtle juniper and layers of citrus and herbaceous notes. Try in a delicate martini.

Tarquin's Rhubarb and Raspberry Gin, £36/70cl, Tarquin's Cornish Gin

This Cornish gin is deliciously tart and fruity, with a hint of appetising bittersweetness. We think it would make a delicious pink negroni with rosé vermouth and Campari.

Chase Pink Grapefruit and Pomelo Gin, £40/70cl, Amazon

Created by distilling Chase gin with grapefruit and pomelo peel, this is a super-fragrant spirit, full of zesty tartness and well-balanced bitter notes.

Chapel Down Pinot Noir Gin, £35/70cl, Waitrose Cellar

Produced using distilled pinot noir grape skins left over from vineyard Chapel Down’s grape harvest, this is a smooth, juniper-led number that has a delicate nose and a rounded flavour with light fruit and vanilla notes. One to choose if you prefer a classic gin rather than a flavoured one.

Sweet enough to treat more like a liqueur, this had an appealing sweet-shop-like rhubarb and custard character, with subtle ginger heat. Enjoy served neat, over ice.
