Best Pink Gin UK Reviews 2022 – Budget & High End Options

By  Enda McLarnon

Gin in the UK has boomed in popularity with pink gins leading the way as a popular drink of choice. Gin was first made in the Netherlands and is one of the easier alcohol drinks to make and is done so by distilling a neutral grain alcohol with juniper berries and other botanicals.

In reality they are not really berries at all, but are a cone with fleshy scales that make it look just like a berry as we know it. They are mainly used as a spice and in the making of gin. 

Pink gin is just a normal gin that has been flavoured with fruits. The reason for its popularity is that many people didn't like the taste of normal gin and found it too dry. By adding, strawberries, red currants or raspberries, the colour changed to pink and it also tasted so much sweeter.

Pink gin is commonly used in cocktails such as pink gin, lemonade and Prosecco, known as a Pink Spritz.

Gordon's Premium Pink Distilled Gin

The Gordon's brand is the most associated one with gin and has been selling worldwide for many years

Their premium pink gin is a light and refreshing tasting drink and even better if mixed with tonics and freshly chopped strawberries

This is a 70 cl bottle with a 37.5% ABV but it is also available in a 1 and 1.5 litre bottle

Like most pink gins the addition of fruit makes this a much sweeter tasting drink than normal gin and we think well worth a try.

How Much is 70 cl?

70 cl is the standard size for a bottle of spirits. cl stands for a centilitre, which is one hundredth of a litre. So a 70 cl bottle of alcohol is actually 0.7 litres. That is the same as 1.23 pints.

Now it can get confusing, and we don't like confusion, so hopefully the information below clears this up.

If you go into a bar in the UK and order a gin for example, their standard measure is 25ml and in Northern Ireland it is 35 ml. (Some bars in the UK also serve a 35 ml size)

25 ml is the same as 2.5 cl and 35 ml is the same as 3.5 cl

So if you bought a bottle of pink gin sized 70 cl, you would get 28 x 25ml measures from the bottle.

If you are more used to a 35 ml measure you would get 20 measures.

Hopefully that has cleared up any confusion.

What does 40% ABV mean?

Most gin has a 40% ABV also referred to as 40% volume. ABV stands for "Alcohol by Volume." If for example you bought a bottle of pink gin with an ABV of 40%, the 70cl X 40% = 24cl which is the amount of actual alcohol in the bottle.

The remaining contents include flavours, water and other ingredients.

Hopefully that has cleared up any confusion.

What are units of alcohol?

A UK unit of alcohol is 10 millilitres of pure alcohol. If for example you drink 10ml of pure alcohol, then 60 minutes later there should be virtually none left in your bloodstream.

In the UK most bottles and cans show the number of alcohol units they contain.

For example, most gin as we have mentioned has an ABV of 40%. If you bought a 1 litre (1,000ml) bottle of gin it would contain 400ml of pure alcohol. This is 40 units as 10ml of pure alcohol = one unit.

 So, in 100ml of gin, there would be 4 units and as such a 25ml single measure of gin would contain 1 unit of alcohol.
