Pinkster, 'the Agreeably British Gin', is brought to us by the rather affable Colonel Pinkster! This larger than life fellow is more than happy to take a few moments out of his life of leisure to extoll the virtues of his fair libation!
First launched in July 2013, 5 botanicals are used to create this premium gin. Pinkster is the brainchild of Stephen Marsh, and is now distilled to the company's own recipe by G&J before being hand-steeped in the raspberries that lend it both its pink hue and subtle fruitiness.
Recommended Valentine's Day serves include the Valentini (50ml Pinkster, 15ml Sweet Vermouth, a dash Orange Bitters & a barspoon Triple Sec), Pinkster's Loving Fizz (with fresh raspberries, mint, lime juice and sugar syrup) and the Hot Ticket (with fresh raspberries, red chilli, Falernum and Chocolate bitters!).
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched today.

Initially discovered this at a Foodies Festival and am now mildly hooked. They recommend serving with fresh mint instead of lemon or lime - trust me, it makes a real difference.

If you're not a fan of the big dry gins, then this will hit the spot. The juniper's there but it's not dominant. Mighty refreshing.....will be stocking up for the summer. Thanks.

Wasn't sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Smooth finish. Even the mother-in-law who's not a gin fan was back for seconds.
