Apparently Brussel Sprouts flavoured gin is now a thing

Brussels Sprouts wouldn't be our first choice, but maybe it's good?

You now have a new way of getting in your five plus a day: Brussel Sprout gin!

Pickering’s Gin has created new Brussels sprouts flavoured gin – and no, it doesn’t sound too appealing. The gin has been distilled using 100kg of Brussels sprouts – which is enough for 2,000 Christmas dinners – sourced from a farm in Scotland.

They describe the smell as a "sprouty" aroma with a "surprisingly sweet", slightly nutty taste with a green, herbaceous and peppery twang.

The unique flavour is part of a limited edition six-pack of Christmas inspired gin baubles, which are selling out!

The perfect gift for the alcohol fan in your life...
