10 best pink gins to buy 2023
Mirabeau Dry Gin
Best pink gin for gifting
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
Best raspberry 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
Best pink grapefruit gin
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
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.
Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Gin
Best for a sweet tooth
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.
Gordon’s Premium Pink Distilled Gin
Best budget pink gin
A berry-led gin with prominent strawberry flavours, this had a dessert-like aroma and a syrupy mouthfeel – best for those who like their pink gins super sweet.
Kyrö pink gin
Best pink gin for sipping neat
This rye-based gin hails all the way from Finland. It’s slightly sweeter than traditional gin, with delicate red fruits, tangy rhubarb and a nice creaminess. Try sipping it neat over ice.
The Cotswolds Distillery No.1 wildflower gin
Best floral pink gin
This vibrant gin adds lavender, cornflowers, orange and rhubarb root to the brand’s original (and excellent) London dry base spirit. Expect juniper, but also a heady floral character and almost bitter, zesty orange that ends in a marmalade-like finish. In hue and taste, it’s not dissimilar to a bitter Italian aperitif, and accordingly, the suggested serve is spritz-style with tonic water. We’d also suggest topping it up with sparkling wine, or using it in a negroni or in place of Campari in an americano.

Hensol Castle blood orange zest gin
Best citrussy pink gin
Bittersweet blood orange is the star of the show in this nicely balanced, flavoured gin, bursting with sunny citrus notes and juniper from the underlying base spirit. Try in a spritz with a wedge of blood orange.
Slingsby rhubarb gin
Best rhubarb gin
This fragrant gin, made using Yorkshire rhubarb, has a deliciously tart and intense flavour. Use to give your standard G&T a fruity twist.
