Crafter’s Aromatic Flower Gin was recently unveiled at the TFWA World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes, introducing the world to a unique blend of botanicals that has a natural copper color—until it is mixed with tonic.
The Aromatic Flower Gin is made with 12 botanicals including everything from rose petals and elderflower to meadowsweet and chamomile. Rosehip blooms are also a key botanical in the gin spirit, causing it to undergo a transformation from a copper-colored drink to a pin one when tonic is added. This can be attributed to the natural pigment found in rosehip blooms, which reacts in response to the change of acidity when a high-quality tonic is added.
Like rosehips, butterfly pea flowers are also being used to create dramatic color-changing drinks that morph from blue to pink when the pH levels are disrupted.
