Treasury Wine Estates deputy chief marketing officer Angus Lilley says: “Gin is so popular at the moment and Squealing Pig Rosé is growing by sixty-seven per cent. Squealing Pig has had enormous success bringing some playfulness and fun to the typically serious wine category.

Drinks expert Jason Crawley – who received the 2018 Australian Bar Awards’ Outstanding Contribution Award – worked as a consultant on the launch plans, and says the gin “really punches above its weight”.
“With an alluring pale salmon colour, it is dry, light and refreshing with subtle juniper, bright citrus flavours and balanced spices. The addition of the rosé wine gives it a delightful hint of lifted strawberry on the finish.”
Squealing Pig Rosé Gin (700ml) is now available to order and will be launching in store around the country in July. | July 2019 | Food&Drink business | 49
