"Bringing sunshine to homes"

Manchester Drinks boss Richard Benjamin said: "We are delighted to have expanded our range of gin and rum liqueurs to bring a bit of sunshine into homes across the nation."

He added: "All products offer the taste of summer in a glass and have been created to be versatile – they are simply delicious on their own, or they can be used as the key ingredient to a fruity cocktail – enjoy as you like!’"

And, it appears, gin fans most definitely intend to.

"I’d just put a straw in the bottle," said one.

"Damn this sounds so good," said another.
