We 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.
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.
