We are very happy to announce that Pinkster Gin will be showing off their fantastic range of gins and gin-based products at the inaugural Inspire Cambridge presented by Velvet Magazine.
Pinkster Gin 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.
G&J Distillers, one of the world’s oldest gin distilleries, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to the Pinkster original recipe. They then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh, plump raspberries grown locally to their rural base outside Cambridge.
Judging by their growing band of admirers, it certainly seems that people are ready for something a little unusual to tickle their taste buds.
Pinkster makes a refreshingly different G&T, with a delicate flavour appealing both to seasoned gin drinkers and recent converts. Best of all, they recycle the raspberries, albeit slightly intoxicated, and sell them in farm shops and food halls as Boozy Berries and Gin Jam.
Head over to the Pinkster Gin table at Inspire Cambridge presented by Velvet Magazine, to discover the natural gin with a mischievous grin for yourself.
