Magic Gins

No, not Harry Potter style magic: when we talk about magic gins we’re talking gins that either do something that well and truly wows, or we’re talking about gins whose ingredients or distillation process are so darn off-the-charts unique that we had to put them in a magic gins category all of their own.

So, here are some of our magic gins for you to try here.

Amuerte Coca Leaf Gin


The world’s only gin made with hand-picked Peruvian coca leaves, Amuerte also features exotic ingredients like tamarillo, papaya, Szechuan pepper, dragon fruit and finger lime.

Hailing from Portugal, Sharish Blue Magic looks stunning: a magic potion bottle full, or so it seems, with the Mediterranean sea. But don’t be fooled: add tonic and the azure blue magically transforms into a dusky pink colour.

Just so you know, this is not just an all-natural gimmick either: this is a seriously lovely, lovely gin.

What happens when you combine classic Four Pillars Gin with some of the best Shiraz grapes in Australia? We think it tastes wonderful – and looks fantastic too when you add tonic and it magically turns a brilliant pink.
