Brexiteer Nigel Farage has launched his own brand of Brexit-inspired gin, made with “patriotic flavours”, and produced by a distillery in Cornwall.

Farage Gin was launched yesterday and is available to buy in a white, red or blue bottle. It was made with the help of unnamed Cornish artisans. 

The label of each £40 bottle features the GB News​ presenter walking his black Labrador Baxter on a Cornish beach alongside a Union Jack flag.  

An ode to Cornwall

On his website, Farage wrote: “I visited Cornwall for the first time in 1983, it was a fishing trip and I was nineteen. It seems a long time ago now, but my love for what I consider England’s most beautiful county has not changed. 
 
“Amazing coastal walks, a rich and mysterious history and the surfing of course, there is no better way to end a fully packed Cornish day than with a glass of gin and tonic as the sun goes down over the western horizon.” 

The gin was produced using pure local spring water, naturally occurring sugar and was bottled by hand in small batches.  

Anonymous couple

Farage said the drink was designed in Cornwall by a couple in their garden shed. The red gin got its colour from Kentish cherries, and according to Farage, paired well with a rhubarb and raspberry tonic.  

The white gin, which had a “faintest hint” of liquorice was the Brexiteer’s favourite. He suggested serving it with slimline tonic and grapefruit.  

Furthermore, the blue gin was coloured with blue gardenia flowers, and Farage believed it went well with Mediterranean tonic.
