Gins that taste like sweets

Gins that taste like sweets and retro candy sounds like a novelty concept that has no sea legs whatsoever, but here’s the deal: if you love flavoured gin – and you love the taste of a particular childhood sweet – you’ll be in gin + sweet heaven with some of these sweet flavoured gins.

In our ‘tuck shop’ on the bar you’ll always find retro candy style gins and gin liqueurs like Dr Eamer’s Love Hearts and Fruit Salad and Persian Blue Marshmallow Gin, not to mention new Jaffa Cake Gin. When you order one, you can often expect a sweet treat to go with it too.

Here are some of the gins that taste like sweets that you can usually find on our sweet shelf.

It shimmers. And tastes exactly like parma violet sweets. Try it with lemonade and a few blueberries. We also have the wonderful Zymurgorium Sweet Violet Gin Liqueur too. Try that – if you dare – with prosecco. Read more about Shimmering Parma Violet here.


Turkish Delight Gin Liqueur is the latest limited edition from the experimental Zymurgorium Manchester distillery; and, though Turkish Delight isn’t for everyone, it’s so lovely and so delightfully popular that we hope they extend the run on this sweet flavoured gin marvel.
