Summer Cocktails with Dillon’s Small Batch Rose Gin

This summer has been either a dismal cool one or a sizzling hot one, or both! Time to relax and enjoy the rest of the summer with a Dillon’s Summer Cocktail.

Last month Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers Rose Gin was introduced to the BC market and is now available at BC Liquor Stores.

Dillon’s Rose Gin begins with Dillon’s signature Dry 7 Gin, and is then infused with rose hips and rose petals, and sweetened with organic cane sugar – perfect on its own over ice or in a sparkling wine cocktail.

($46.99, 750mL)
