It does what??!!
A 12th botanical, Butterfly Pea Flower is macerated in our base spirit to create a wonderful blue colour gin. Yes, you read correctly a blue gin – similar to the colour of the sky in Speyside.
Deep Blue gin is changed to pinky-purple when you add tonic or citrus garnish!
So if you want to join the trends of pink gin but don’t want the sweet-fruity gin then this is your answer.
We have kept this magical gin a true classic juniper-forward gin with a cheeky secret – we love it and so do our customers!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
What is our colour changing Blue Gin?
A 12th botanical is added to our Blink Gin to give it the blue colour that it has, this then changes to a pinky-purple colour once tonic is added.
How is our colour changing Blue Gin made?
Our Blink Scottish Craft Gin is distilled following the same process as our other gins, post distillation we macerate the 12th botanical, Butterfly Pea Flower, in the spirit to give it its blue colour. This botanical causes a reaction with citrus, meaning once you pour your tonic in it the colour will change from a blue gin to a pinky-purple coloured gin.
What mixers work best with our Avva Blink Scottish Gin?
Mixers that would go with this gin would need to have citrus acid for the reaction to happen. We suggest our Indian Tonic water, Pink Grapefruit Tonic, Mallorcan, Lemonade or Pineapple and Almond mixer.
How strong is our Avva Blink Scottish Gin?
As our Avva Scottish Gin is a craft gin the ABV would be higher in our Blink Gin sitting at 40% ABV, with this being higher than most standard gins this improves the overall taste of the gin as it intensifies the botanicals.
