Christ - well isn't this the news we've all be waiting for?

Wetherspoons across the UK have announced they're selling Manchester parma violet gin in time for the summer months - and let's be honest, it'll make the prettiest cocktails ever.

Speaking to Pretty 52, Wetherspoons announced that 900 pubs across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are now serving the colourful treat alongside their wide range of gins, and we can't wait to try it out.

The Parma Violet flavoured gin is guaranteed to take you and your mates back to your childhood, and if you can't see yourself making it out to a 'Spoons anytime soon, bottles of the purple gin are available to buy for £25.75.

Zymurgorium Gin Co's Sweet Violet gin is distilled in Manchester's most 'inventive micro-distillery', with the label bearing a gold and black worker bee.

The website reads: "Sweet Violets are a beautiful find and have a very unique sweet pastelly taste and a strong scent.

As a drink it can be used exactly like Crème de Violette but as it has been refined with over 20 other botanicals contained in our Gin made in Manchester’s first Gin distillery; it is also equally as good on it’s own, with lemonade, mixed with ice cream or in baking!"

Makes you proud to be a Manc.
