Supermarket Aldi is introducing its first-ever Japanese gin to stores from 21st May, for just £16.99 (70cl).
The Haysmith’s Yuzu & Mandarin Gin blends popular Japanese citrus fruit Yuzu, a cross between lemon and grapefruit, with flavours of fresh sweet mandarin and juniper. Hints of cherry blossom and subtle spiced notes of Sansho peppers make for an aromatic, complex finish.
Already making waves in the spirits industry, the expertly distilled tipple landed a SILVER medal at this year’s prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC), beating brands costing double the price.
