THE ONLY CLOUDS IN THE SKY THIS SUMMER WILL BE COTSWOLDS GIN
New trend for cloudy gin revealed as Cotswolds Distillery educates consumers on flagship Cotswolds Dry Gin’s ‘cloudy’ credentials
The Dry Gin is non-chill filtered giving it the distinctive cloudy appearance when served as a classic gin and tonic

An overcast summer is forecast this year with clouds forming in drinks across the UK. A new gin trend is predicted with the Cotswolds Distillery introducing the Cloudy G&T.
This summer’s must have drink is made using the award-winning Cotswolds Dry Gin created in the heart of the Cotswolds. It’s distilled using a high botanical load, with over ten times the average volume, including freshly peeled lime, pink grapefruit zest and a hint of Cotswolds lavender.
As the gin is non-chill filtered, the botanical oils are retained, and so a distinctive pearlescent cloud forms when ice or tonic is added.
For the perfect G&T, fill a large balloon glass with ice, pour over a generous measure of gin, top with a splash of classic tonic water, and garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit and a fresh bay leaf, then watch the cloud appear.
Founder, Daniel Szor, said: “The cloudy G&T is a signature of our Cotswolds Dry Gin and we want to teach gin lovers about this unique feature. Our distilling process enables us to produce our delicious, award-winning gin with a distinctive look. We use more botanicals than the average gin and the non-chill filtering means none of the oils from the botanicals are removed. In turn this means our gin has a beautiful, cloudy appearance when mixed with tonic or ice.”
To celebrate the gin’s cloudy credentials, Cotswolds Distillery has launched a competition to win a hot air balloon flight over the Cotswolds and a trip to the distillery for one of their Gin Blending Masterclasses.
To enter the competition, consumers need to take a picture of their cloudy Cotswolds G&T against the sky and then tag it #TheCloudyGandT on Facebook or Instagram. The winner will be selected at random in September 2019.
Cotswolds Dry Gin has an RRP of £34.95 and is available from www.cotswoldsdistillery.com and other stockists such as Waitrose and good pubs across the country.
