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).

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%.
