Pink in appearance, the Marilyn Monroe Gin is floral and delicate, distilled with Japanese cherry blossom, hibiscus, rose and pink grapefruit. Distilled by hand and floral to the fore, the long and smooth finish results in an elegant gin perfect for mixing. The bottle design, of course, features iconic images of Marilyn Monroe including the legendary white dress photo.
Marilyn Monroe remains one of the most influential figures in the world and an instantly recognisable name. The partnership will see the Burleighs brand join a list of iconic brand affiliates as they work in partnership with the Authentic Brands Group, a global leader in brand innovation and the owner of the Marilyn Monroe Estate. Burleighs have secured a five-year partnership to create and distribute the Marilyn Monroe branded pink gin, which is a first in the spirits industry, and aims to shake up the ever-competitive gin market and propel the Burleighs brand to global success.
Burleighs Gin Managing Director, Matt Payne, is delighted to have secured the partnership, “This initiative marks the start of a new era for the Burleighs brand, with the support of ABG, we are confident that Marilyn Monroe Pink Gin can diversify the increasingly competitive gin market with its unique, standout appeal. The combination of Marilyn coupled with the boom of the pink gin market presents an exceptional opportunity and addition to our portfolio.”
The product joins Burleighs core collection of four London Dry Gins which include their household Signature Gin and highly commended Distiller’s Cut. The Burleighs brand are already in discussion to follow the launch in the UK market with a release in Asia and the US, the next steps in their drive for global success.
