This limited edition Shamrock Gin is about the save your lockdown Paddy's day
We are about to face our second St. Patrick's Day in lockdown, and I don't know about you, but I am looking for all sorts of little ways to make the day – despite there being no pubs, no parades and zero craic to be had.
Drinkies at home it is – and at the very least, it is still looking like the weather will play ball, meaning we might even be able to sit in the garden and sip our beverages.
And as luck would have it, Blacks have bought out a limited edition Shamrock Gin – just in time for March 17th.
With a reputation for pushing the boundaries of flavour when crafting their range of award-winning spirits, and escaping the mundane of the mass market by producing craft beers with passion, personality and lots of hops, Blacks' limited-edition Shamrock Gin sounds like just the thing we want to be celebrating with this year.
This Blacks Shamrock Gin is a small batch distillery exclusive as part of their Blacks Experimental Series, and this Paddy’s Day must-have is infused with Shamrock & Mint to give this gin a mouth-watering Irish twist.
To ensure the perfect serve, this limited-edition St. Patrick’s Day spirit comes with the essentials to make a Blacks Shamrock Shake - Blacks Shamrock Gin (70cl) and a bottle of Monin Frosted Mint Syrup (70cl). All you have to do is add ice, fresh lemon and Sláinte!
