It all came about after ginmeister Stephen 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. After a year or two foisting the stuff upon unsuspecting friends and family Pinkster teamed up with G&J Distillers. Formed in 1760 and now part of Essential Drinks they're the oldest continuous gin distillers in production today.
Pinkster is deliciously dry, the juniper comes through clearly with only 5 botanicals, but it is neither strong nor overpowering. Instead, the raspberries counteract its sharpness with a gentle fruity flavour. Ends with a wonderfully smooth finish.
Add lemonade for a delicious long drink.
