UK launch for Barcelona Spirits Brands four-strong 5th Gin range

Published:  16 March, 2016

Barcelona Spirit Brands has announced the launch of all four of its 5th Gin range in the UK.

It is the first time the company, which is well established in the Spanish and European markets, has targeted the UK.

The four gins in the range have been created around the four elements: earth, fire, water and air, each with a distinctive flavour profile.

Earth is citrus, infused with orange, lemon, tangerine and grapefruit; Fire is red fruits, such as blackberry, blueberry, currant and strawberry; and Water is floral in flavour, infused with rose, violet petals, a range of spices and more juniper than usual.

Each has an abv of 42%.

The fourth gin in the range, Air, is the brand's base London Dry Gin, and has an abv of 40%.

The range has a contemporary, urban design and is packaged in elegant, curve-shouldered bottles.

The different botanicals and infusions give each gin a different colour: Earth is pale yellow, Fire is red and Water is turqoise.

Air, by contrast, comes in a black bottle.

The range is produced in partnership with Catalonia's Destilleries de Maresme, which dates back to 1875.

The brand is launching in the UK on-trade initially, with 200ml gift packs scheduled to follow for the off-trade later in the year.

Each individual gin in the range is available in cases of six 70cl bottles, and there is also a pack of four 70cl bottles containing one of each element which is designed to stand out on the back bar.

The Barcelona Spirit Brand range is now available through UK distributor Hammonds of Knutsford.
