Gin Mare to release a gin-soaked olive and rosemary panettone

While the UK clings on to the last of summer, Gin Mare is starting its festive preparations early, teaming up with chef Theo Randall and baker Rocco Tanzarella to create a £22 ‘ginettone’ in time for Christmas.

It may still be August, but Spanish gin brand Gin Mare is getting ready for Christmas.

This year, it has teamed up with chef Theo Randall, of Theo Randall at InterContinental in London, and baker Rocco Tanzarella to create a booze-soaked festive treat. The limited edition ginettone will be flavoured with Gin Mare’s savoury botanicals including rosemary, thyme and basil and dotted with gin soaked Spanish olives. The dough itself will be sweet and contain the traditional candied fruits in addition to the other flavourings.

Commenting on his creation, Randall said: “Gin Mare has all of these wonderful savoury flavours and unique botanicals, so it lends itself perfectly to working with food. Sticking to tradition, we have kept the bread itself sweet, but balanced this with Gin Mare’s distinctive herbaceous and citrus notes for a panettone that is most definitely unlike anything you will have tasted before!”

The 500g ginettone will be sold at Harvey Nichols from October priced at £22 in a limited edition of just 500. Randall will also be serving the Italian festive sweet bread on his menu throughout December, paired with a Gin Mare cocktail.
