Special offering, which includes a bottle of gin, available for home delivery
To celebrate the launch of its new Gooseberry and Elderflower gin, Edinburgh Gin has partnered with one of the Edinburgh’s best-loved bakeries, Mimi’s Bakehouse, to serve up a summertime offering like no other.
From Friday 26th June, for four weekends, residents of Glasgow and Edinburgh will be able to order an exclusive Afternoon G&Tea from Mimi’s Bakehouse, which includes a 70cl bottle of the latest addition to Edinburgh Gin’s award-winning flavour range.
The “Mimi’s Bakehouse x Edinburgh Gin Afternoon G&Tea” contains six mini traybakes, two mini elderflower cupcakes and two, freshly baked, plain scones, with Rodda's Cornish clotted cream - plus homemade gooseberry jam, giving a zesty kick to the spread*.
The tea is complete with a bottle of Edinburgh Gin’s Gooseberry and Elderflower gin. Bottled at 40% ABV, the delightfully tangy expression boasts flavours of tart gooseberries and sweet elderflower, giving it a subtly tangy taste, with a delicate, honeyed finish. It’s perfect paired with a light tonic and garnished with fresh mint or used as a base for cocktails – making it the ultimate summer picnic pour.
The “Mimi’s Bakehouse x Edinburgh Gin Afternoon G&Tea” is priced at £50, including delivery, and is available to order via the Mimi’s website. Orders open 12pm Friday 26th June for delivery on Friday 3rd July. Full T&Cs below.
To toast the special partnership, and the official start of summer, Edinburgh Gin will also be giving two copa glasses to the first 100 orders of their Afternoon G&Tea.
Neil Boyd, UK Managing Directorof Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “Edinburgh Gin is delighted to be collaborating with another Edinburgh great, Mimi’s Bakehouse, to give people an afternoon cream tea experience unlike any other.
“The great British summer is a time for warm afternoons spent with friends, in the park or in our gardens and this partnership is sure to make that experience feel extra special.
“Our Gooseberry and Elderflower gin is the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon cream tea – refreshingly zesty, yet sweet, and perfect in an ice-cold G&T.”
Michelle Phillips, owner of Mimi's Bakehouse, said: "We are delighted to partner with Edinburgh Gin, another well-loved company with origins in Edinburgh, to bring people a delicious and memorable experience.
“We have had a lot of fun developing bespoke baking to pair with Edinburgh Gin's latest offering - including elderflower cupcakes and homemade gooseberry jam!”
