It all came about when founder Stephen realised wine and beer no longer agreed with him. A keen maker of sloe liqueurs and other concoctions, 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.
The original Pinkster gin, hand-steeped in fresh raspberries. Deliciously dry with a hint of fruit and an exceptionally smooth finish. If you're trying as a G&T, be sure to spank the mint.
For a couple of years, Pinkster scratched their heads wondering what to do with all the inebriated raspberries left over from making Pinkster. Then came the eureka moment and started jarring them as Boozy Berries. Mighty scrummy too.
Move over Marmalade – Gin Jam
A natural by-product from Pinkster, the raspberries that are too 'squishy' (technical term) for Boozy Berries are now used to make this decidely fruity jam. Perfect for putting the tipple in your teatime or for something stronger. Mildly alcoholic at 2.5% ABV. Spread the word.
