Cheeky G&T anyone? Here are some of the best and most unusual gin flavours you can buy.

Gin has fast become one of the most popular spirits of 2018. From fruity to festive, we've rounded up the best (and weirdest) flavours you can buy.

Victoria's rhubarb gin - Warner Edwards - £5-£38

Described as a 'classic cocktail with a twist', the added lemon and sugar creates a sherbert-like flavour with a burst of rhubarb.

Interestingly, this gin has a royal twist to it, as it's been made using a crop of rhubarb originally grown in the kitchen garden of Buckingham Palace. One third of the gin is fresh rhubarb, which creates a 'sweet and tangy royal rhubarb explosion' in the mouth'. Yum!
