Parma Violet Gin Cocktail

£1.50

Based on the Parma Violets Sweets which have been produced by Swizzles an iconic British sweet for over 70 years, and their unique violet flavour has divided opinion for just as long. You don’t have to love them, but you do have to try them!

Parma Violets were created in 1946 by the Derbyshire sweet company Swizzles Matlow. They are sweets that are hard, biconcave discs, based on similar aniseed confectionery traditionally consumed in India after a spicy meal. Their flavour has been described as sweet with a soapy or floral taste. The current recipe includes Sugar, Citric Acid, modified Starch, Glucose Syrup, and Anthocyanin.

In 2016, Swizzles Matlow released a special Parma Violets flavoured cheese to celebrate their 70th birthday. Cocktails that replicate the flavour of the confectionery are also available in some UK bars and NOW WE HAVE PRODUCED A COCKTAIL PRESERVE WHICH IS GREAT FOR SPREADING ON YOUR TOAST, MUFFINS OR CROISSANTS
