FIG SPIRITS

It seems 2018 is the year of the fig, par­tic­u­larly within the drinks in­dus­try, where we’ve no­ticed a re­cent surge in fig-flavoured liqueurs and spirits. We love Esprit de Figues (£25.15, avail­able at mas­terof­malt.com)

– the world’s first true fig liqueur.

SPRING SOUP

Heinz soups get a spring makeover in a limited-edi­tion takeover by Cath Kid­ston to cel­e­brate its 25th birth­day. From late April, you’ll find Heinz soup tins in three of Cath Kid­ston’s iconic designs in su­per­mar­kets. COLOUR-CHANGING GIN In case drink­ing gin isn’t al­ready fun enough, how about drink­ing gin that changes colour? New to Har­vey Ni­chols from The Old Cu­rios­ity Dis­tillery, the gins turn from pur­ple to pink or from blue to pink when tonic is added, de­pend­ing on the flavour. This fol­lows last year’s Shar­ish Blue gin, which also changes from blue to pink with tonic. Apothe­cary rose gin, £42 (500ml) har­veyn­i­chols.com CLOUD VODKA Speak­ing of un­usual spirits, Hil­ton Head dis­tillery in Amer­ica’s South Carolina has re­cently launched a vodka called Aer­moor, made us­ing wa­ter sourced di­rectly from clouds. PROTEIN ICE CREAM We know it might not be ice creameat­ing weather just yet, but we’ve no­ticed a trend sweep­ing across the freezer aisle re­cently: ice creams con­tain­ing more protein and less sugar. Brands like Halo Top, Brey­ers De­lights, Koupe and Min­i­oti all pro­duce lower sugar, higher protein dairy ice creams at the mo­ment for those who want their ice cream fix with slightly less guilt.
