Roses are pink this Valentine’s Day

Apothecary Rose gin

Edinburgh-based distillery, The Old Curiosity, is spreading the love this Valentine’s Day and beyond with its Apothecary Rose colour-changing gin.

Until the end of March, every 50cl bottle (ABV 39%, RSP £35.95) will come with a free bag of pink rose petals to garnish glasses.

The gin changes colour from pale gold to pink when tonic is added.

The Old Curiosity’s Hamish Martin said: “Our delicious Apothecary Rose gin offers a little magic for Valentine’s Day. It turns an incredible shade of pink, and it looks just perfect when served with a scattering of lovingly-grown rose petals.”
