THAT BOUTIQUE-Y GIN COMPANY SPIT-ROASTED PINEAPPLE BATCH 2 - 50 Cl
A commonplace tipple of the '20s, pineapple gin fell off the map and was lost to time for a while. That Boutique-y Gin Company have rescued it from that fate and given it a 21st century twist. Whole pineapples are roasted on a spit with Demerara sugar until they're gloriously caramelised, and they're then combined with a particularly bold gin, helping to cut through the sweet, toasty pineapple. Serve over ice, or with some Ting if you can get your hands on it.
Much like a fine wine, some sediment may evolve in the bottle over time. This is due to the natural interaction between the real fruit ingredients and the spirit, and does not affect the ever-evolving flavour of the gin. You can pour the gin off the sediment, or simply shake it in.
|Brand||THAT BOUTIQUE GIN COMPANY|
|Nose||Authentic pineapple sweetness, with waves of sharp citrus and slightly earthy juniper. Sugar caramelising in a pan with a stick of cinnamon.|
|Palate||Mouthwatering tropical fruit right from the start. Hints of honey, orange blossom and oily juniper. A couple of enjoyably sour pineapple notes develop on the mid-palate - perhaps some Lilt, too...|
|Finish||Lightly charred sugar, cardamom and lasting fresh pineapple drenched in caramel notes.|
