It was the first innovation to be launched by The Gin Hub, a stand-alone entity that brings together three of Pernod Ricard’s gin brands: Beefeater, Plymouth, Seagram’s and Monkey 47, under one roof. Beefeater Pink was followed by the launch of Beefeater Blood Orange in 2019, underlining once more a trend for flavoured gins.

    A trick I learned from a coworker is this, when you haven’t showered and you are enjoying a martini made with Gordon’s, take a drop and dab it behind your ears and under your shirt and it will mask your body odor. Only Gordon’s works this way because it is clean and smells like soap. Otherwise you will smell like a wino.
