Our 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 us, and our third of 2018. We have one more planned for later this year, as well as a Rarities Club where you can sign up to guarantee yourself a bottle of the upcoming rarities for the year, which also ensures you get them first as well as other bonuses like exclusive discounts on our online shop. But more about that later!
If you don’t already know, ‘The Rarities’ are our range of one-off spirit products of whatever we 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 only until it sells out.
We did this Rarity to coincide with World Gin Day on Saturday 9th June, the idea being that you can get your exclusive Tutti Frutti gin time for toasting the most important day of the year! Customers who buy directly from our website will get their bottles first, with these bottles dispatched week commencing 28th May, whilst the trade and customers buying elsewhere will have to wait a little longer until week commencing 4th June.
Our 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 Rarities’ range launched in 2017, and during that year we produced 4 limited edition flavoured gins; 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. 2018 has seen us do an Espresso gin and a Sweet Bell Pepper and Naga Chilli gin prior to this latest release. All our Rarities thus far have 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, so get in there quick.
We aim to craft the best quality, big flavoured yet balanced spirits, using traditional methods and be transparent about how we do it too, perhaps debunk some myths/assumptions in the process. For us, its about bringing the best quality and most flavourful libations possible to thrill-seeking drinkers. To be a Poetic License product, it should […]
Depending on how much you know about gin you might just think gin is gin, but there are sub-categories of different styles. The gin most people know is London Dry Gin, and this is what style our Northern Dry Gin is. They are characterised by being juniper-led, 37.5% or above and all botanicals being distilled […]
Yep, this is our first ever blog. Let’s get that out of the way right from the get-go. We’ve had to put this blog on our news so that this section doesn’t look all boring and bare when you come looking – what with us having a fancy new website *smugface*. Might as well use […]
