Gordon’s Gin has added its new Sicilian Lemon Distilled Gin to its Australian portfolio of products in response to ongoing popularity for flavoured gins.

The new gin is made with 100 per cent natural flavours and crafted to balance juniper notes with zesty lemons.

Diageo Australia head of light spirits Linda Wellington said there has been an increase in appetite for different styles of gin across Australia.

“Flavoured gin contributed 43% to total gin growth in Australia over the last 12 months, so we know consumers are looking to experiment with their drink choices and try something new and unique,” said Wellington.

“We’re excited to introduce Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon Distilled Gin to our Australian range, and are confident it delivers the perfect balance of flavours for fans seeking new ways to enjoy a G&T.”

Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon Distilled Gin is now available in 700ml bottles for RRP $49.99 and a ready-to-drink, 330ml format with soda in four-packs for RRP $21.99.
