Despite it being pretty dreary and grey in London this week, summer IS COMING (at some point) and we have a fun new drink to introduce you to. Never ones to shy away from a quirky flavour creation, That Boutique-y Gin Company have truly outdone themselves with their Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin.
Boasting a beautiful golden colour and rich in fruity sweetness, this incredible gin is so delicious you could easily drink it simply served over ice. For a refreshing long drink though, we’d recommend mixing it with some ginger ale, lime and plenty of ice and then kicking back to relax in the sun.
To celebrate World Pineapple Day (which is 100% a legit day) on 27 June, That Boutique-y Gin Company held a Pineapple Gin Parlour pop-up in Soho for four days. Featuring a fun gallery of pineapple on things like pizza, in a can and in gin, as well as pineapple and cheese nibbles and plenty of pineapple cocktails, it was a true pineapple extravaganza.
Throughout the weekend interactive cocktail masterclasses were held too, which we were super excited to head along to. Here we learned to make a Pineapple Mule, The Queen P and Nana’s Sucker Punch, as well as learned some fun facts about pineapples. Did you know that during the 15th-17th centuries pineapples were a status symbol and were referred to as ‘The King of Fruits’? Until Queen Victoria came to the throne anyway and decided that wasn’t going to fly under her reign. She insisted they be referred to as ‘The Queen of Fruits’, as you do when you’re a powerful monarch.
If you want to get your hands on some Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin, you can head to Master of Malt and order it straight to your door. We’ve even included a little recipe for the Queen P below to inspire you to get the summertime drinks happening.
