Bodegas Williams & Humbert says the success of the Botanic gin range launched in 2012 led to the creation of Botanic Kiss (37.5% abv), which takes the botanicals used in its Premium expression and adds red fruits of the forest.

Made in Spain’s sherry region, Jerez de la Frontera, Botanic Premium gin uses 11 botanicals: juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, orange peel, lemon peel, orris root powder, liquorice root powder, cassia bark, almond shells, sweet orange along with a touch of buddha’s hand lemon.

Kiss is said to be the result of combining the 11 botanicals with fruits of the forest: strawberries, raspberries and blueberries – these new added ingredients providing the spirit with its distinctive pink colour.
