Nostalgia is a great selling point for many things. Now, nostalgia has set its sight on gin with more flavours hitting the market that are blasts from the past. One retro sweet that many will have a fond memory of are "Black Jacks", a chewy, aniseed-flavoured sweet that is famous for turning your tongue black while you enjoyed it. Now, thanks to the team behind The Handmade Gin Company, that Black Jack flavour you knew and loved has now been liquidized into a gin that you are definitely at risk of falling in love with.
In its matte black bottle, Union Jack Black Gin already catches the eye. But this understated dressing leaves room for what is within to blow your taste buds away. This is a premium, handmade, artisan gin that is distilled four times to ensure that only the best makes it to consumers. Even if you have never tried the sweet on which the flavour and name are based, this gin is outstanding.
While it is great on its own, with a lot of ice and tonic to make a classic gin and tonic with a nostalgic twist, you can also enjoy it as its creators do, with blackcurrant juice and a splash of soda. It might not turn your tongue black, but it will make your inner child dance with joy.
Description of Union Jack Black Gin 50cl
Union Jack Black Gin 50cl
- Colour: Union Jack Black Gin 50cl is genuinely pitch black in hue.
- Aroma: The authentic scent of the liquorice sweets of childhood.

PRODUCER: The Handmade Gin Company, sometimes referred to as the Wirral Distillery, is indeed based in the Wirral area of the north of England. It crafts a range of gins and liqueurs which are both nostalgic and modern, which use traditional techniques and equipment to create imaginative products that thrill the modern market.
COUNTRY: United Kingdom.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: Union Jack Black Gin 50cl is hand-crafted in small batches, quadruple-distilled in copper pot stills, and infused with aniseed to recreate that classic staple of British childhood, the Black Jack chewy sweet. It even comes in a black bottle, with the Union Jack on it, of course. But don't think this makes it a gimmick of a tipple. Not only does it add gin-and-liquorice-sweetie goodness to your favourite cocktails, but being able to add a layer of black colour to shooters and mixed drinks opens up a whole new beverage world to you. Another classic British treat is the blackcurrant-flavoured boiled sweet with chewy liquorice in the middle. Why not recreate that by adding Union Jack Black Gin 50cl to soda and blackcurrant juice on ice?
