While enjoying the beverage on the rocks, the flavours replicate the taste of a delicious Easter hot cross bun.

Other refreshing options could include mixing the gin with sparkling wine, tonic or sparkling water with fresh citrus to form a seltzer drink.

The adults-only product is available to purchase in a 500mL bottle for only $19.99.
