Breixiteer and GB News presenter Nigel Farage has launched his own brand of gin, produced by a distillery in Cornwall, and it’s a range of three bottles, offered in red, white, and blue.

The bottles have been made with “patriotic flavours”, and Farage boasts they offer a “taste of Brexit”, and were launched yesterday.

With the help of Cornish artisans, who have not been named, the former UKIP leader came up with the three gins, with each bottle costing £40, and featuring a label with the Union Jack, alongside Mr Farage and his black Labrador walking on a Cornish beach.

Writing on his website, Farage said: “I visited Cornwall for the first time in 1983, it was a fishing trip and I was 19.

“It seems a long time ago now, but my love for what I consider England’s most beautiful county has not changed.

“Amazing coastal walks, a rich and mysterious history, and the surfing, of course, there is no better way to end a fully packed Cornish day than with a glass of gin and tonic as the sun goes down over the western horizon.”

In a promotional video, Mr Farage said: “This gin is genuine artisan gin designed by a couple, developed, literally, in their garden shed in Cornwall, using Cornish spring water. No added sugar.”

The announcement of the new product received mixed reviews on social media, with one user saying: “Great to see you supporting British business goodness knows they need all the support they can get at the moment.”

Another added: “Imagine walking into someone’s house after a date and seeing all three bottles lined up, proudly displayed on the countertop. It’d make you run an absolute mile!”

Others pointed out to Farage that the gin is a “European migrant”. Historian Professor Tanja Bueltmann said: “I am so sorry to have to break it to Mr Farage, but gin is a European migrant.

“English distillers began making gin after ‘genever’, a Dutch juniper-flavoured liquor, came to England in the 17th century and became popular. The drink is quintessentially European.”
