Just in time for Easter, an English distillery has released a dry gin that mimics the taste of hot cross buns. While most people associate Easter with chocolate and pastel-colored treats, the British often celebrate the holiday with spiced sweet buns. Now there is a boozy new way to enjoy the tasty buns in the form of a sweet liquor.
The alcoholic spirit is a London dry gin infused with sweet ingredients such as cinnamon, nutmeg, sultanas and citrus fruits. The unique combination of ingredients gives the gin a sweet, slightly citrusy flavor that mimics the taste of hot crossed buns. When served with tonic water and ice, the gin provides a delicious new way to enjoy the traditional Easter treat.
