Def Leppard have launched their own branded gins to mark the band’s 45th anniversary.
Joe Elliott and co. have created the Animal and Rocket gins in collaboration with Brands For Fans and the company’s in-house master blender Daniel Henriksson.
Animal is a London dry gin and is said to have a “high intensity of flavours” combining juniper, lemon and botanicals for a “spicy, big, and bold” taste. The label’s design was inspired by the first single released from Def Leppard’s massive Hysteria album and is bottled at 40% ABV.
Rocket also weighs in at 40% ABV and is a premium gin that carries "juniper and herbaceous tones" with the label design taking inspiration from the lavender labyrinths at Sheffield Manor Lodge. Rocket also gets a flavour boost with the addition of macerated lavender and lemon which have been blended with the distillate
Both the Animal and Rocket gins are now available in the UK at Brands For Fans priced at £31.73 each, and at Craftshack in the US where you can grab both bottles for a total of $59.99.
We think a bottle of each would made an excellent Father's Day gift – or if you're in the market for something a bit more fizzy, perhaps something from our best home beer dispensers would do the trick.
Def Leppard released their new studio album Diamond Star Halos last month and are now out on the road with Mötley Crüe, Poison and Joan Jett on their long-awaited US stadium tour.
