I was pleased to be invited along to the launch in Australia of Pinkster Gin.
The launch was held at the iconic Madame Brussels and what a glorious Spring evening it was to take in the gorgeous Melbourne views from the City’s first ever rooftop bar.
I also had the pleasure of being greeted by the legendary Miss Pearls on arrival. She handed me a plate of cucumber sandwiches and I gushed for a little bit about how much I loved hearing her talk at last years Food Symposium.
Pinkster Gin was launched by founder Stephen Marsh in Cambridge England because he was experiencing dietary issues. I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen on the evening and he told us that he produces his light, raspberry infused product in his own backyard. It is made uniquely, relying on fresh raspberries.
His product uses fresh fruit to flavour the gin rather than dried fruit and it is a lovely, light way to enjoy a Friday night drink.
It was a lovely way to launch into a weekend in Melbourne after a hectic week at the tiller.
