Personally, i have been a vodka and coke advocate for a few years now. However, with 2018 i feel there is now heavy sway towards G&T. Yes, if James Bond can request that his Martini is “shaken not stirred” then i should be able to get my Gin with some added collagen.. Enter, Camilla Brown, 30, and Liz Beswick, 29, who are introducing the world’s first gin range with added collagen to UK shores, aptly named: CollaGin.
With an elegant and refined taste, the unique recipe has stayed true to the principles of a classic gin but with a rejuvenating twist of refreshing botanicals such as star anise, pink grapefruit and orris, with the innovative addition of pure collagen.
With eleven botanicals in total, the remaining botanicals featured in the gin include vanilla, pink peppercorn, angelica and liquorice, resulting in a smooth and fresh taste that can be enjoyed as a sipping gin, a cocktail gin or with the classic tonic water. A CollaGin G&T is best served with a slice of fresh pink grapefruit and star anise.
CollaGin is distilled with America’s number one collagen brand which does not affect the taste, smell or appearance of the gin. Co-Founder Camilla Brown comments: “This really is the smoothest gin I have ever tasted and works so well in many different ways. We’ve used complementary botanicals and a dose of pure, powdered collagen to create a surprise and delight product that gets people talking.”
Co Founder Liz Beswick adds: “it took a year in the making and we have had many hurdles along th way but we are so proud of the end result. The gin is fragrant, soft and the aftertaste is velvety, with a hint of vanilla. It has been worth the highs and lows of starting our own business to beautify the world of
