Warner Edwards Victorian Rhubarb Gin, 40% abv
A tangy explosion of rhubarb makes this aperitif extra unique. Great mixed with ginger ale or tonic water.

This rich port is infused with a dark chocolatey taste that meanders into a black cherry palate. We recommend drinking this on its own. £7.00 from Morrisons.
