Founder of Pinkster, Stephen, 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. They use locally grown, real ones. The ones that grow on bushes!
With the recipe developed, G&J, one of the country’s oldest distillers, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to our original recipe which we painstakingly developed over several years.
We then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh, plump raspberries grown nearby our rural base outside Cambridge, to produce the finished gin that is Pinkster.
