That Boutique-y Gin Co - Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin (70cl, 40.1%)
A rather cheeky new addition from That Boutique-y Gin Company: Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin.
Popular in the 1920s, but long since forgotten, pineapple gin is back with a 21st century twist. Whole pineapples are roasted on a spit with Demerara sugar until a beautiful caramelisation occurs. The pineapple is then combined with some bold and bright gin.
The result? The height of decadence and avarice that needs to be tasted to be believed.
Nose: 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.
