Poetic License Independent Small Batch Distillery’s seventh rarity, an incredible mixed fruit concoction, is now available to buy.
It has a vibrant nose of tropical fruit with more mellow stone and berry fruits in the background.
Sweet pineapple arrives immediately on tasting, followed by a tang from juniper and mixed fruits intermingling; vibrant kiwi and peach followed by subtler cherries and berries, then plum and apple.
Leaves lingering, slightly piney juniper and a delightful fruitiness on the palate.
This summery gin is limited edition number 7 for the north east-based distillery, and their third of 2018.
They have one more planned for later this year, as well as a Rarities Club where customers can sign up to guarantee themselves a bottle of the upcoming rarities for the year, which also ensures they get them first as well as other bonuses like exclusive discounts on the Poetic License online shop.
‘The Rarities’ are Poetic License’s range of one-off spirit products of whatever they fancy making.
There are only a few hundred bottles of each ever made and when they’re gone, they really are gone! This latest rarity will be available for pre-orders from today until it sells out.
This Rarity launch coincides with World Gin Day on Saturday, June 9, the idea being that customers can get their exclusive Tutti Frutti gin time for toasting the most important day of the year!
Customers who buy directly from their website will get their bottles first, with their bottles dispatched week commencing May 28, whilst the trade and customers buying elsewhere will have to wait a little longer until week commencing 4th June.
Distiller Luke Smith explains the process behind this gin: “We distilled this gin with hand-peeled, -chopped and -puréed fresh fruit – it is pretty much a distilled fruit smoothie.
“Although fruity and a little sweet, there is no sugar added so it does not become the sickly sweet you know from tutti fruitt candies – though, equally, it is not dissimilar.
“This gin is an ode to the traditional Italian ice cream flavour; a fruity treat perfect for summer.”
The suggested serve is with tonic garnished with a slice of kiwi fruit, while the cocktail is a TFG (tutti frutti gimlet) garnished with a pineapple wedge.
‘The Rarities’ range launched in 2017, during which time there were 4 limited edition flavoured gins produced; an Orange Blossom in February, a Cherry and Basil in June and a Gooseberry & Elderflower in September and finally a Blackberry and Bay in October.
This year has seen them create an Espresso gin and a Sweet Bell Pepper and Naga Chilli gin prior to this latest release.
All their Rarities thus far have sold out within just a few days due to their ‘grab-it-while-you-can’ nature and it is anticipated the newest offering will be in similar high demand.
