M&S launches Pink Gin Cream just in time for Wimbledon

Marks & Spencer have celebrated the start of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships with the perfect treat - that's perfect for pairing with a punnet of strawberries as you watch the on-court action unfold.

Blended with the brand’s best-selling Think Pink Gin, the 200g tub of Pink Gin Cream is priced at £3.50 and is described as a ‘delicious extra-thick cream infused with pink gin and a little raspberry for a blush colour and light berry flavour’.

When a post of the Pink Gin Cream – which bills itself as a ‘posh cream for strawberries’ – was shared on the official M&S account it attracted more than 2,000 likes from excited foodies who also couldn’t wait to comment on the dream pairing of booze and lashings of cream.

One wrote: ‘That cream is AMAZING!!!!!!’

A second simply added: ‘Yes please’

While a third continued: ‘I’m coming to Marks and Spencers today holiday treats yummy food lol x no one does it like m&s’

And there were equal levels of excitement over on the M&S Facebook page, with many tagging their friends in comments because sharing is caring when it comes to this M&S treat.

One suggested: ‘How about this with Granny Anne’s strawberries?’

While another simple stated: ‘We must get some.’

Also featured in the Instagram image were more mouth-watering, strawberry-related treats from M&S including their exclusive Red Diamond strawberries (£2) and the brand’s Strawberries and Cream Cake (£3.50).

On the debut of the Pink Gin Cream, M&S Dairy Product Developer Rosie While said, ‘Our Pink Gin Cream is set to be a game-changer this summer. Our customers love gin in everything so we couldn’t resist adding their favourite tipple to our extra-special cream just in time for Wimbledon.’

Last month M&S announced another summer-ready launch four new cocktails in a can – including their version of Aperol Spritz.
