Flavours for Gin
At Simpsons we specialise in supplying new and exciting flavours for gin to gin brands, distilleries and bottlers.
All our flavours can be used to manufacture both flavoured gin (typically 40% ABV) and gin liqueurs (typically 20% ABV).
Our MOQ is 500 litres/flavour (circa 3000 litres RTD). This is typically too high for start up businesses.

Popular gin flavours
For a gin brand targeting the mass market, mainstream flavours for both gin & gin liqueurs often centre around fruits such as raspberry and orange, or more recently watermelon and passionfruit. Floral flavours such as violet and rose, or spices including ginger and cinnamon also remain fashionable options.
