Just in time for Def Leppard‘s summer “Stadium Tour” with Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett in tow, the Joe Elliott-led English rockers behind 1987’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me” have launched a new signature gin for their band.
Two different versions of it, actually. Now, Def Leppard fans can pour some official Def Leppard alcohol into their cups. And both rockin’ spirits take their name from Def Leppard songs — “Animal” London Dry Gin and “Rocket” Premium Distilled Gin.
Take a look at the gins near the bottom of this post.
Def Leppard’s “Animal” London Dry is a “classic London Dry Gin with a high intensity of flavors,” a press release shares. “The grain-based distillate is heavy with juniper, lemon, and botanicals. It is spicy, big, and bold and has all the classic gin characters.”
The “Rocket” drink takes inspiration “from the lavender labyrinths in Sheffield … to get an even more developed experience of botanical character,” it continues. “Additional flavors of lavender and lemon are macerated and blended with the distillate. There are no added sweeteners, ensuring the purest quality”
The song “Animals” is on Def Leppard’s influential Hysteria (1987), the same album as “Sugar,” and was its first single. “Rocket” was a promo Hysteria single in 1989.
