Spring is in the air, Easter is just around the corner and the nights are finally getting lighter, it can only mean one thing - G&T season is here!

The last few years have seen gin sales soar, possibly because of the rise in popularity of craft spirits, or maybe it’s down to the fact that drinking gin is actually good for you - in moderation at least!

Alcohol companies have of course jumped on this sales spike, many launching gimmick gins, from anti-aging (yes, really!) to 22-carat-gold gin, and most of the time nothing compares to the original. But we’ve discovered a cocoa and orange combination that has got us seriously excited.

Elephant Gin’s latest offering combines their award-winning dry gin with organic Spanish oranges and roasted cocoa beans, resulting in a distinctive, fresh new way to sip your G&T. We all know how well chocolate and orange flavours sit together so it makes sense to try them in gin.

Elephant Orange Cocoa Gin | £30.90

This invigorating, citrus-fresh gin variation has an aromatic complexity of sweet organic oranges and gently roasted cocoa beans. Try it with tonic for an updated version of the classic G&T.

As well as pairing the new orange cocoa gin with tonic, the blend also tastes amazing when mixed into a cocktail with cold brew coffee and ice. Or why not make it into your very own Dry Martini with a chocolate orange twist?

Elephant Gin combines rare African botanicals in each of their beautiful bottles that come embellished with traditional Maasai beads, handcrafted by women from the Kenyan Maasai tribe. They’ll look seriously sophisticated in your drinks cabinet.

The company also makes sloe gin and gin coffee liqueur but use their expert knowledge to ensure all drinks taste incredible, rather than just fill a hole in the market. And for each bottle you buy 15% of the profits will go to supporting the conservation of African elephants, so as well as getting a great G&T you’ll also be doing a little bit of good for the world.
