Tasting Notes for That Boutique-y Gin Company - Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin
Aroma: The inside of a pineapple fritter - juicy, with a touch of zestiness and light caramel.
Taste: An indulgent harmony of flavours greet the tongue: a beautiful mix of sweet and sour pineapple and rich, sweet caramel.
Finish: Lingering sweet pineapple, as well as the dry, crisp freshness of the gin, inviting you back in for another sip.
Perfect Serve: Ginger beer & lime wedge.
AWe present you with a quandary. You wish to enjoy the fantastic combination of pineapple and gin, but you don't fancy hacking away at a pineapple and sticking a fistful of pineapple chunks into your glass (which is understandable, as pineapples are notoriously cumbersome and pointy). What to do? That Boutique-y Gin Company presents you with a solution to this quandary - Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin!
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, or ginger beer and lime.
