Following the launch last year of the “Rum Kollection portfolio”, KISS have launched their official, KISS-branded gin.
We’re told that Cold Gin is “bold and uncompromising” and “inspired by the band’s roots in New York City”. These factors conspire to create “a taste explosion that’s always cranked up to 11.” Sounds good, right? KISS frontman Paul Stanley certainly thinks so.
“Now it really is Cold Gin time,” says Stanley, making obvious reference to the 1974 KISS song of the same name. “If gin is your thing then this is the one to bring. Like the song, this one’s a classic!”
Cold Gin was made in conjunction with Swedish company Brands For Fans, who are also responsible for KISS’s rum, as well as MOTÖRHEAD’s Iron Fist Whiskey and GHOST’s Juniper Gin.
The design of the Cold Gin bottle features the four members of Kiss on display next to New York’s Brooklyn Bridge. The main label features a gold disc and various New York City and Manhattan landmarks, while the art deco pattern behind the disc is based on the scales of Gene Simmons’ demon boots.
As for the taste, they promise “clear tones of juniper, a generous aroma and classic gin character”, a well-balanced palate featuring “juniper, citrus and herbs, lemon peel and angelica root,” and a finish that “intensifies and grows in the mouth.”
