Spit Roasted Pineapple Gin is a thing! Would you try it?
We’re used to seeing new gins come around, from gins such as seaweed gin from Ma Dhile Gin (available here) all the way to Lobster infused gin which we wrote about last year, we do still get excited about new ones that peak our interest (and taste buds!) and when we heard about a ‘Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin’ it certainly did make us wonder what it would taste like.
Brought to you by the Boutique-y Gin Company, who are the company behind gins such as ‘World Gin Day Gin’ and many others, they’ve created a new gin by using spit-roasted pineapples. What exactly is a spit roasted gin you may ask, well they take the skin off the pineapple, then roll and coast the whole thing in Demerara sugar and then it is roasted over a flame. This creates an inressistable caramelised piece of heaven, which they then combine with one of their classic gins.
This creates a gin infused with this spit-roasted pineapple and featuring botanicals such as coriander, orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, orris, liquorice, angelica, lemon and of course juniper. Sounds pretty unique if you ask us and judges at the Gin Masters 2017 awards gave it a Master medal so they must be doing something right.
It’s best with tonic or made into a Pineapple 75 cocktail which you’ll find the recipe below, or if you don’t fancy either of these then why not try it with ginger beer.
The gin is available from the Boutique-y gin company here
