Gin lovers are raving about this new Jaffa Cake flavoured bevvyMay 10, 2020
We’re all indulging right now, whether it’s a glass of wine in the evening or a biscuit or two (or a packet) to get us through working from home.
Why not merge those two, though, with this new Jaffa Cake flavoured gin that’s swept the internet.
The drink – available from Master of Malt – is distilled with oranges, fresh orange peel, cocoa powder and real-life Jaffa Cakes.
It’s currently a bestseller on the site, and you can probably understand why just from that ingredients list.
It’s ideal for negroni cocktails, but also goes well in a standard G&T with a twist.
That’s because it’s not just a liqueur, and is a genuine gin that’s been infused with the sweet treat. So it doesn’t get overly cloying, but brings something new to your usual tipple.
The reviews on the site speak for themselves, with one commenter saying: ‘This didn’t disappoint those tingling taste buds! Not too sweet which is what I was afraid of, very tangy, great jaffa cake taste to it not just orange flavour. Defo one for the top drawer!’
Somebody else said, ‘Honestly the best gin I’ve ever had! Tastes exactly like a Jaffa Cake! Will be purchasing more ASAP!’ while others called it ‘Heaven in a glass’.
We tried the Jaffa Cake gin – here’s what it tastes like
Have you ever mashed together 10 Jaffa Cakes into a glass and poured alcohol on top in the hope that you’d come up with a fantastic cocktail?
Well, that’s kind of what this gin tastes like.
It’s not necessarily bad, but the flavour isn’t subtle and it’s also somewhat confusing. And, very sweet – we could only handle one glass of the stuff with a dash of tonic, but hardcore Jaffa Cake fans will likely love it.
Top tip: make a boozy Jaffa Cake gin cake.
If you want to get your hands on the new gin, it costs £27.95 and can be delivered to your door.
Alternatively, if you’re planning on stocking up your spirits cupboard, you can get a Jaffa Cake negroni bundle on the site for £45.35.
This includes the Jaffa Cake gin, campari, Martini rosso sweet vermouth, and a crystal tumbler to go with it.
Just remember, those lockdown hangovers still come along the same – even if your drink of choice was a classy one.
