Roy Wood Cherry Blossom Supergin: A Spring Celebration

As we gear up to celebrate World Cocktail Day on the 13th of May, Nelson’s invites you to enhance your hosting skills with our exclusive Cocktails & Canapés Recipe Book. Written by our founder and Master Distiller, Neil Harrison—a chef by trade—this guide is an essential resource for anyone looking to impress guests. 

Cherry Blossom Supergin is not just a new addition to his portfolio; it's a departure into a completely unique style of gin. Inspired by his classic hit "Cherry Blossom Clinic" with The Move, the gin features a subtle floral profile with a distinct cherry back note that perfectly captures the essence of spring blossom in every sip.

Roy Wood's personal involvement in both the recipe and the artwork infuses the gin with his signature artistic touch, making it a true collector's item for fans of his music and connoisseurs of fine spirits alike.

How to Enjoy the Cherry Blossom Supergin

Perfect Serve

For those who appreciate the purity of flavours, the Cherry Blossom Supergin is best enjoyed neat, served over ice. Alternatively, for a more refreshing experience, pair it in equal parts with a Mediterranean tonic a slice of lime and a single maraschino cherry.
