M&S are launching pink gin cream in time for Wimbledon

The most English of treats just in time for the most English of sporting events. You don’t need to be court-side to get in the spirit.

Marks & Spencer has unveiled a limited edition pink gin-flavoured cream ahead of the return of the Wimbledon tennis championships.

The great British strawberries and cream treat are set to get an on-trend upgrade with the supermarket’s boozy new spin.

Its extra thick cream is blended with the brand’s best-selling Think Pink Gin and is priced at £3.50 for a 200g tub.

Described as a “delicious extra-thick cream infused with pink gin and a little raspberry for a blush colour and light berry flavour,” it’s set to be a sell-out as the sporting tournament returns for two weeks from 1st July.

M&S Dairy Product Developer Rosie While commented: “Our Pink Gin Cream is set to be a game-changer this summer. Our customers love gin in everything so we couldn’t resist adding their favourite tipple to our extra-special cream just in time for Wimbledon.”

The chain’s also expecting to shift 12 million individual strawberries during the two-week tournament.

And as if one gin-infused newbie wasn’t enough, M&S is also launching Ginking Rosé – a combination of sparkling pink rosé wine and gin – that’s £13 a bottle.

The nation’s gin fans are spoilt for choice when it comes to quirky new versions of the popular spirit.

Cider brand Kopparberg has branched out into the gin game with the development of a mixed fruit gin infused with unusual flavours like botanical juniper, lemon zest and coriander as well as raspberry and blackcurrant.

Tesco is offering a glittery Rhubarb and Rosehip Gin that’s just £6 a bottle.
