When I first heard of a "Unicorn Gin", I immediately dismissed the premise as ridiculous.
I mean, why should a pink gin be mixed with edible glitter in the first place? Before having even laid eyes on it, I thought it wouldn't work. Oh, how wrong I was.
Everything about this gin is perfect, from the bottle with a simple, yet powerful aesthetic, to the label with a colourful unicorn motif and the logo of the Zymurgorium themselves. And that's to say nothing of the gin itself, which is of course the main attraction. At first glance you wouldn't know anything was different from just the colour, which is exactly the beautiful colour a pink gin should be, but upon lightly shaking and then observing for even a moment you'll notice, like I did, the shimmering wonder that is this unique gin. Different colours seem to swirl constantly, from white to pink, and it never settles for even a moment. It honestly looks like a magical potion from a fantasy novel, which of course makes sense given that I've been told it may or may not be made from real unicorn tears. But you didn't hear that from me.
Anyway, having poured myself a glass (which only accentuated it's shimmering splendour) along with some prosecco (one of the combinations recommended by the creators of this fine gin - also recommended as a "ginshake") I was immediately wowed by the outstanding taste of marshmallow. Rumour has it that it's the unicorn tears coming through, but the official explanation is the toasted vanilla used in the distillation process. My mind immediately leapt to the days of my childhood, dreaming of candyfloss and the like, and gave me a newfound appreciation for the craft. I, almost instantly, took another large sip, eventually finishing the glass and pouring another.
Overall, this sweet yet balanced gin was able to immediately capture my heart and, of course, my tastebuds. The fact that it is distilled by hand (by masters of gincraft, no less) ensures that every bottle is of the highest quality. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anybody looking for a delicious afternoon treat.
