From blackberry to blood orange, an award-winning Norwich gin brand has launched two new limited-edition drinks. 

Bullards Spirits has introduced Blackberry and Sloe Gin and Nelson’s Blood: Blood Orange Spiced Rum, which are both available to pre-order now to arrive before Christmas. 

While most sloe gins have an alcohol content of 15-30pc the Bullards one is 40pc ABV, which gives it a more intense flavour.

The other new product is Bullards' first rum and it is inspired by Norfolk's seafaring legacy, with Horatio Nelson born in Burnham Thorpe in 1758.

Russell Evans, the founder of Bullards Spirits, said: "Lots of people have asked us over the years to do a sloe gin and it is a great drink for winter. 

"This is our first foray into rum and it may appeal to a different market to our gins."

The name Nelson's Blood comes from the legend that Lord Nelson's body was preserved in a cask of rum after he died at the Battle of Trafalgar. 

The crew then celebrated their victory by drinking from it.
