FORÊT ROSE

GIN CHANGES COLOR

THE 25 BOTANICALS OF THE DEUX FRÈRES GIN PROVIDE ITS STRONG BLUE COLOUR. THEIR PIGMENTS, ANTHOCYANINS STEMMING FROM THE POLYPHENOL GROUP, HAVE AN INTERESTING PROPERTY - THEY CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE PH VALUE, I.E. THEY ASSUME DIFFERENT COLOURS IN ACIDIC AND BASIC ENVIRONMENTS.

FROM BLUE TO ROSE

WHEN IN A PH-NEUTRAL ENVIRONMENT, THE GIN ASSUMES ITS RECOGNIZABLE BLUE STATE. THE ADDITION OF TONIC WATER PUSHES THE PH VALUE INTO A SLIGHTLY ACIDIC RANGE, CAUSING THE GIN COLOUR TO CHANGE FROM BLUE TO VIOLET TO A VERY SOFT ROSE. THIS MAGIC HAPPENS NATURALLY, WITHOUT ANY STABILIZERS OR ADDITIVES - SOLELY THROUGH THE CHEMISTRY OF OUR EXQUISITE BOTANICALS.
