Home Bargains is launching a new Candy Cane gin just in time for Christmas

Does it get any more festive than this sparkly offering?!

Home Bargains is launching a new gin and it pretty much screams Christmas.

The limited-edition gin – a liqueur made by the Manchester Drinks Company – takes its inspiration from a fabulously festive sweet.

Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to your new festive tipple.

It blends subtle minty notes with sweet vanilla to create a “beautifully fresh yet nostalgic candy cane flavour, the ultimate festive sweetshop taste”, a rep revealed.

And, in even better news, it shimmers!

“Enjoy neat or simply add soda, ice, a sprig of fresh mint and a wedge of lime for a refreshing taste of Christmas – perfect for those cosy nights in,” the rep added.

“The traditional flavoured gin also has a festive modern twist as it shimmers when shaken!”

“We know that our fans love our nostalgic flavours so we wanted to create something we knew they’d love with added festive sparkle.

And, in more good news, the brand is also brining back last year’s popular Snow Fairy Gin.
