**** PRESS RELEASE FROM PINKSTER GIN ****
In a nod to traditional gin styles, pink gin pioneer Pinkster has launched its triple juniper base gin as Naked Pinkster. Since the company’s launch in 2013, the core spirit has always been macerated with fresh raspberries but is now available as a stand-alone product.
Stephen Marsh, Pinkster managing director said: “The truth is, we’ve been hiding our light under a bushel for far too long. Unlike many of our pink peers, Pinkster has long been acknowledged as a dry gin and that’s because we refused to cut corners on the quality of our core spirit.
“With its subtle notes and hint of pepper, this juniper-forward gin provided the perfect foil for the fresh fruit that we’ve built our reputation on. Eight years later, it’s now time to bare all and introduce Naked Pinkster as a quality gin in its own right.”
Made with five botanicals to the company’s own recipe by G&J, one of the world’s oldest distilleries, Naked Pinkster, 40% abv, is available in 70cl (RRP £34) and 5cl bottles.
Rich in juniper on the nose then on the tongue, with pepper notes in the tail, Naked Pinkster makes a crisp, dry G&T when garnished with a twist of orange peel.
Marsh added: “Juniper, the all-important botanic berry, has taken a backseat to the multitude of botanicals in many new-wave gins, so we’ve made it the star of Naked Pinkster. There’s simply no escaping that charismatic peppery bite of a classic London Dry.
“Along with the original Pinkster gin and assorted natural by-products, we’re providing the trade with a range of sustainably sound, premium drinks that remain bang on trend with current consumer habits.”
Naked Pinkster, already a London Dry category Gold winner (The Gin Masters 2021) launches this December and is available direct from Pinkster.
