Thanks to Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s RTD of choice in Fleabag, canned gin cocktails have never been more popular. Here’s our pick of the latest (and possibly greatest). Hot priests optional


 

That Boutique-y Gin Company

That Boutique-y Gin Company’s new canned range (see featured image) comprises five of the company’s most popular serves: Moonshot Gin & Citrus Tonic, Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin Mule, Cherry Gin & Craft Cola, Strawberry & Balsamico Gin Fizz and Squeezed Yuzu Gin Collins. The range will also be available in kegs to allow trade accounts to serve them on draught.

Chapel Down

Winemaker Josh Donaghay-Spire has partnered with Double Dutch to mix one of the brand’s tonics with Chapel Down’s Bacchus Gin. It’s the first time the Kent-based company has entered the convenience market with a pre-mixed product – could it be a sign of things to come?

Sipsmith

In the year it turns 10, Beam-Suntory-owned Sipsmith has launched two G&T cans to the on-trade: one with normal tonic and one low-calorie option. We reckon this could be one of the summer’s biggest hits.

Adnams

Adnams' new Copper House Pink Gin & Tonic blends raspberry and hibiscus with its classic Copper House Dry Gin to give it a shockingly pink colour – though the producer emphasises that it 'maintain[s] the true character of the original gin' – then adds tonic to the mix.
