Inspired by health-conscious drinkers and sober-curious minds, Blue LIGHT is for those who don’t want to completely abstain, but do still want to pursue a healthier lifestyle.
A first in its category, Blue LIGHT excites at 24% ABV, retaining the crisp mouthfeel of a full-strength spirit, while elevating the flavours of Juniper, Rose Pelargonium and Blue Pea to exquisite new heights.
Six Dogs Blue derives its name from the blue pea flower (Clitoria Ternatea), an antioxidant and alleged aphrodisiac in traditional medicine. As chance would have it, ‘Blue’ was also the name of the smallest dog in our original pack of six.
The infusion of blue pea gives the gin its striking and entirely natural colour, while the alchemy of this unusual botanical is further revealed when the gin is mixed with a good tonic, changing the colour to light pink.
The first blue gin to be launched in South Africa, Six Dogs Blue is a classic dry gin with a slightly floral character, with hints of freshly-cut lucerne over hand-picked and morning-harvested rose pelargonium.
