Pinkster Gin is a small-batch gin, hand-steeped in fresh raspberries, deliciously dry, with a hint of fruit and an exceptionally smooth finish. As you taste, there’s raspberry on the nose with the juniper coming through and then a slight spice that develops
It makes a highly agreeable G&T, especially when served with decent tonic, a raspberry and a sprig of fresh mint. Be sure to spank the mint first by clapping in your hand, to release the minty aromas that complement the raspberry so well.
It all came about after founder Stephen was told by doctors to stop drinking wine. Not quite ready to quit the sauce, he turned his attention to spirits and started experimenting at home, mashing assorted fruits with different spirit strengths.
He wasn’t intentionally creating a pink drink, it’s just that after working his way through an entire fruit bowl, raspberry delivered the best flavour.
G&J Distillers, one of the world’s oldest gin distilleries, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to our original recipe. We then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh raspberries grown locally to our rural base outside Cambridge.
Judging by our growing band of admirers, it certainly seems that people are ready for something a little unusual to tickle their taste buds.
