Trinity25 is latest lower alcohol spirit to hit UK market
Spirit of Bermondsey has launched its inaugural drink, Trinity25.
The botanically-infused spirit, which is made up of three spiced botanicals, has a lower alcohol positioning at 25% abv, and it is described as “a lighter alternative to gin”.
The spirit is made from 100% English grain spirit, which is cold-infused with juniper and a trio of spices: cardamom, coriander seed and black pepper. It works well in classic drinks such as Negronis and Martinis but is also good as a Spritz, according to the producer.
Nick Johnson, founder of Spirit of Bermondsey, said: “As a long time gin and botanical spirit fanatic, I wanted to create a drink that returns to the original ethos of gin. At its heart, gin is a very simpoe and elegant drink, but recent trends have seen over complex mixes with 10, 15 or even 20 botanicals fighting for attention. It has also become overly strong, with up to 50% alcohol not uncommon.
“With Trinity25, I have created a spirit that is elegantly simple and a much lighter alternative to gin. There is no compromise on taste with Trinity25, it is made with flavour at the forefront of its existence, and its lower alcohol content means it is a sociable drink for those who enjoy the delicious taste of spiced spirits.
“It also fills a clear gap in the market for a lower alcohol spirit which will appeal to those who want to enjoy a few drinks, but also watch their alcohol intake. Its eye catching bottle allows it to sit proudly with other botanical blends, but its smooth finish and lower abv sets it apart from the rest.”
Trinity25 has a trade price of £19 (excluding VAT).
