Pineapple Gin - TBGC Bottling Note

Consider the pineapple. Delicious, though unwieldy. The pineapple has been used in many recipes throughout the ages, like tasty puddings, contentious pizzas, and of course, drinks. Back in the 1920s, Pineapple Gin was a commonplace beverage, but it fell into obscurity in the years following. However, That Boutique-y Gin Company could not bear to see Pineapple Gin lost to the ravages of time and have revitalised it with their own 21st century twist. Introducing Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin.

Whole pineapples are roasted on a spit with Demerara sugar until they're gloriously caramelised. That Boutique-y Gin Company then combine this lip-smacking treat with some bold gin, which both cuts through and pairs brilliantly with the sweet, zesty, subtly toasty pineapple. Ta-da - your new favourite summer tipple. Though well-suited to sipping over ice, the label suggests you seek out some Ting to enjoy with Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin, and we can't recommend that enough.

Much like a fine wine, some sediment may evolve in the bottle over time. This is due to the natural interaction between the real fruit ingredients and the spirit, and does not affect the ever-evolving flavour of the gin. You can pour the gin off the sediment, or simply shake it in.

Batch 2 is a release of 2,200 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Authentic pineapple sweetness, with waves of sharp citrus and slightly earthy juniper. Sugar caramelising in a pan with a stick of cinnamon.

Palate: Mouthwatering tropical fruit right from the start. Hints of honey, orange blossom and oily juniper. A couple of enjoyably sour pineapple notes develop on the mid-palate - perhaps some Lilt, too...

Finish: Lightly charred sugar, cardamom and lasting fresh pineapple drenched in caramel notes.

Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin (That Boutique-y Gin Company) Reviews

Full of flavour

That spit roast was delicious. Don’t like gin, but this was great!!

Beautiful caramelised notes with the distinct flavour of roasted pineapple!

It's truly delicious!

Love it.

Great over ice. Great in a smoothie. Great with lemonade. Great for cocktails. It’s so versatile and tastes like you're eating fresh pineapple straight of the bbq what’s not to love.

Buy Gin Instead of This Alcoholic Fruit Syrup.

It's nothing like a gin, it's expensive very sweet pineapple syrup containing alcohol.
No subtle flavours, just mouth twistingly over the top sugar and pineapple.
As has already been stated, it's a liqueur, presumably it's called gin simply to cash in on the booming market for gin.
Calling this gin makes as much sense as tipping sugar and fruit juice in vodka and calling it whiskey.
I won't be buying any of this outfits offerings again, lesson learned.
Over the past few days house guests have told me that I should be forced to drink the bottle as I bought it and they think it's terrible stuff.
A waste of money - that's what you get for going by the repeated advertising hype "reviews" on web sites............

No juniper was harmed in the making of this product

This is heavily laden with sugar. It is absolutely a liqueur not an actual gin.
If it was in the liqueur section it would be fairly good but it is not and therfore it isn’t.
I would never in a million years market this as a gin. If anybody can taste juniper in this syrupy mess they deserve a standing ovation.

Not the usual

Not your usual gin. Mix it with lemonade and you get a grown up version of Lilt - the roasted pineapple flavours really come through, but with an alcoholic bitterness that makes it a good adult pop. A little goes a long way though - think I'll save this for long drinks in the summer.

This is not gin

My hubs and and I felt it had a horrible aftertaste and was way too sweet. Hard pass.

Rich and Real.

Rich, and really incredibly pineapply. It's been made with real pineapple too - you can tell by the way it smells. Absolutely delicious.

Everyone except me loves it mixed

When I opened the bottled it smelled overwhelmingly of gym locker with nasty shoes in there for months. When I tasted it, I got the same, but with notes of if someone had lit a fire and locked the door to put it out. The finish was cloying, like all of the above with molassess added.
I only had a dram and DNF. I have never poured any gin down the drain before this one. You folks are welcome to it.

Lovely and unusual.

Bloody fantastic!
A little too sweet for me but flavours are great even some salty ! Remarkable drink.

11th December 2017

Ew

Neat it smells like a farm - manure - and tastes like cough mixture. With tonic it tastes like farmy cough mixture. Wouldn't recommend this one.

10th December 2017

Unique in a Good Way

Wasn't a huge fan of the smell or initial taste when neat but when Ice and Ginger Ale was added - a fabulous fruity, really pleasant and refreshing taste. Will be purchasing a bottle for Christmas straight away.

25th November 2017

Mmmm

Fantastic Gin, bursting with full pineapple flavours

25th October 2017

Yum

Yum

One for those with a sweet tooth

Wasn't keen, the sweetness overpowered the other flavours for me I'm afraid , will be passing it on to someone with a sweet tooth !

12th July 2017

Excellent summer drink...

I tried this with Ginger ale over lots of ice and it worked really well!!

27th June 2017

Perfect balance

There's a good amount of acidity to balance the intense sweetness of the pineapple. IT feels like they've caught them right on the edge of ripeness as well. Wonderful stuff. Just wonderful.

22nd June 2017

Just the best

Delicious with ice and a slice!

14th June 2017

Delightful

Bought this because of the reviews. I haven't even finished my first glass of gin and Ting yet and need to come and say they were absolutely right. This is a nice gin to drink neat, but with grapefruit soda it is amazing. Even though today is overcast and dull, a sip of this drink transports you to a beach with a bbq sizzling and steel drums playing in the background.

It's not gin as we know it, so if you are expecting a classic crisp and aromatic botanical you will be surprised, but hopefully pleasantly so because this is a truly lovely tipple.

13th June 2017

This is the most insane Gin I've ever seen

But somehow it works - I don't know how, but it really works.

12th June 2017

Terrifyingly good

I don't know how you fitted a whole pineapple in the bottle, but the taste is incredible - well done!

8th June 2017

Yes

Yes please

HOW YOU"D IMAGINE THE PERFECT MONEY SHOT TO BE!

SPIT ROASTED PINEAPPLE EXPLOSION IN THE MOUTH!

7th June 2017

What manner of wizardry is this?

Okay - so this isn't just the best gin/liqueur thing I've ever tried - it's the very best thing I've ever put inside of my face. The richness and 'headiness' of this stuff has to be tasted to be believed. I made an incredible gin sour / white lady sort of thing with it, and also tried it with Fever Tree Cola - both were amongst the very best drinks I've ever tasted.
