The Rolling Donut has just created the GIN doughnut of our dreams

We love doughnuts and we love gin… bring them both together and you've just created the treat of our dreams!

The Rolling Donut, best known for serving deliciously sweet doughnuts from its iconic kiosk on O’Connell Street, are celebrating 40 years in business, and are marking the occasion with two mouthwatering gin treats. 

The company have teamed up with award-winning Bloom Floral Gin to create two new flavours: Gin, Lime, and Elderflower and Strawberry Gin.

Expect bursts of lime mascarpone, strawberry fillings and elderflower glazes with floral gin undertones.

The doughnuts promise to compliment both the floral flavours of the gin and the signature filled doughnuts we know and love.

"We love doing collaborations and Bloom Floral Gin was the perfect summery fit," says Lisa Quinlan owner of The Rolling Donut. 

"It’s something I’ve been working on for quite some time now with my bakers and I can’t wait for our customers to try them."

Now the lowdown on these irresistible offerings:

First up is the gin, lime, and elderflower flavour – a doughnuts  filled with a light and gin and lime mascarpone topped with a delicious fresh gin lime and elderflower glaze.

Next is the strawberry gin flavour – gin infused strawberry mascarpone with a pink sourdough base with a strawberry and gin infused icing, a real taste of summer!
