Adnams’s new gin has some extra summer heat for you

Need a new summer tipple? Can’t get enough of spicy food? We have good news. Adnams has launched a new gin and it is a fiery one.

The award-winning distillery is back with a habanero & lime gin to “celebrate those balmy summer days and nights with”.
Inspired by a recent trip to Mexico, Adnams’s Head Distiller John McCarthy thought the fiery habanero pepper would add a touch of heat to this season’s gin.

Don’t worry though, apparently it is not too hot. According to Adnams, the spicy notes of the pepper are perfectly balanced by the zesty citrus of the lime.

And though you may know Adnams best for its Southwold bitter, this gin doesn't wander far from home (despite its far flung inspiration) as Adnams distils the gin using un-hopped beer produced from local grains in the adjacent brewery.
So, if you’re looking for something with a kick, this sounds like the perfect bank holiday drink. To get the best out of the flavours, simply serve it with tonic, ice and a wheel of lime.
Available from the Adnams website, this limited-edition gin will cost you £29.99.
