TELLY favourite Graham Norton has launched his own pink gin and it’s coming to Tesco in time for Mother’s Day.
But at £29 a bottle, Graham Norton’s Own Pink Gin will cost you at more than twice as much as other branded versions.
Tesco Graham Norton’s gin is being sold exclusively at Tesco
The household TV presenter launched his own brand of wine, SauviGNon Blanc, two years ago and since then he’s moved into the world of Shiraz, Prosecco and Rosé.
Drinkers spent £461million on gin last year, and now Graham Norton is trying his hand at the tipple too.
The premium spirit is made with gin from an Irish distillery in Cork, not far from his home in Ireland.
The 700ml bottles of pink gin, which is due to hit supermarket shelves later this week, is made with 12 botanical flavours, including lemon peel, orange peel, elderflower, rose hip, and fuchsia flowers.

While the blend of flavours sounds incredible, you will be paying over the odds for the blush coloured plonk.
A bottle of Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin the same size will cost you just £12 from Asda, which is £17 cheaper than the celebrity booze.
Even a litre bottle of Gordon’s gin costs less, at £18 from Asda you’ll save £11 and get more booze for your buck.
But it’s worth bearing in mind that Graham’s booze contains 40 per cent ABV while the other leading brands only have 37.5 per cent.
The radio presenter will also be launching a clear version of the booze later this year but it’s not clear exactly when or how much it will cost.
