Fabulous Flagingo

Days are getting brighter, temperatures are rising and with the help of the zealous minds of Zymurgorium there is now a drink that will definitely liven up those warm spring evenings and put you right in the heart of your favourite beach destination. 

Say ALOHA to their newest and most fabulous creation of 2019…FLAGINGO GIN.

Inspired by the gorgeous rose birds that carry its name, this exotic and funky gin will definitely be strutting its stuff across our gin palaces. Infused with the flavours of the Caribbean such as Mango, Pineapple and Passionfruit, this tutti frutti pink gin packs a pretty impressive punch at 38% ABV and we believe will be a hit for our drinks terraces and the perfect tipple for any afternoon you want to brighten.  

The History of the Brand

Zymurgorium have tantalised our taste buds since their appearance in 2013. Mastered by the genius mind of Aaron Darke. The ‘Big Cheese’ at this artisan distillery in the heart of Manchester began his journey by brewing for his university friends where he studied microbiology. He combined his love of botanics and science and embarked on his adventures with Darke Crafts in 2012 – set up in his mother’s shed. Soon business was booming and the before long the brand ‘Zymurgorium’ as we know it was born. 

But where does the name come from? 

With such vibrant and zany creations, it is no wonder that Darke had to come up with a name that epitomised everything that the brand stood for. Amalgamated from the words “Zymurgy” (the study of brewing) and “Emporium”being a store that sells a mass array of goods and trinkets thus the name was brand was born and has continued to wow ever since. 

Since 2013, Aaron and the brand have released hit after hit, with the likes of their Parma Violet gin creating a new gin loving phenomenon across Britain. And don’t forget, Hogarths created the Parma Violet Perfect Serve. It would be hard to find any gin loving individual or gin virgin that has not heard of any of the Zymurgorium creations. So with the ever rising popularity of fabulous gin based liqueurs, we have no doubt here at Hogarths that FLAGINGO will be flying off the shelves!
