Waitrose adds to its Heston gin line up

Waitrose has introduced a new gin to its Heston from Waitrose range in time for Christmas.

The Heston from Waitrose Citrus Sherbet Lazy Gin (rsp: £24.99) is an apple-based gin made using natural citrus botanicals including lemon verbena, lemon thyme, basil, eureka lemons, Persian lime and liquorice root, lemon peel and pink grapefruit peel.

The gin is described as having a “fresh, summery aroma” with “a touch of lemon sherbet”.

John Vine, Waitrose spirit buyer, said: “Gin has been enjoying a revolution recently, thanks to people experimenting while making their own cocktails at home.

“This gin is exciting because, in Heston’s own genius way, he has stripped back and analysed what defines a good gin and tonic. Every element in this gin works towards creating the perfect G&T.”
