Diageo releases Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange Distilled Gin

Following the successful launch of Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon Distilled Gin, Diageo has released new Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange Distilled Gin in Australia.

Gordon’s describes the spirit as a zesty, juicy gin, featuring Mediterranean orange notes that complement the spirit’s signature juniper taste. Drinks Digest is a big fan of Sicilian Lemon and can’t wait to taste test this new addition to the family.

Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange Distilled Gin is available in both a full-strength 700ml bottle serve as well as a ready-to-drink format, Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange Gin & Soda (330ml).

How to mix the perfect Mediterranean Orange & Tonic

To mix a Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange & Tonic, fill a chilled large glass with ice cubes. Pour 30ml of Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange over the ice and top with 120ml chilled tonic water. Garnish with a wheel of orange, then give it all a final stir (0.9 standard drinks).

Gordon’s Mediterranean Orange Distilled Gin and RTDs are available in liquor stores nationwide and online now; 700ml RRP $49.99, ABV 37.5%; RRP $21.99 for 330mlx4-pack, ABV 4%.

Diageo’s booming gin brands

Diageo Australia organic volumes grew 25%, net sales grew 23% and reported net sale were up 26% in the six months to December 31, 2020, thanks to “strong off-trade momentum” and a stellar performance by the drinks giant’s gin portfolio. 

Gin sales were up 48%, driven by Gordon’s and Tanqueray, while RTDs grew 30% during the period, led by Bundaberg, Smirnoff Spiked Seltzers and Gordon’s Pink Gin. 

Success! You're on the list.
