Asda launches range of sweet shop-inspired gins that taste like cola cubes and strawberry laces

They're glittery too!

Gin fans have three new reasons to celebrate this week thanks to supermarket Asda.

The supermarket has just launched a range of gins that are not only sparkly, they also taste just like your favourite childhood sweets.

The trio are from Asda's Extra Special gin collection range.

The Cola Cube Gin also caught our eye – partly because it's infused with gold glitter!

It has the unmistakeable taste of cola cubes. Just add it to the mixer of your choice and don't forget ice and a slice!

They added: "The new range has been created to ensure the gins are both delicious to drink yet also dazzling to look at, delivering popular flavours we know the nation loves, and at a great price point too."

Indeed, the 70cl bottles retail at £18 each.
