Our Pinque Rose Gin, our version of a Pink Gin, derives its name from the 17th century sailing ships with a very narrow stern, flat bottoms, and shallow draught – affectionately known as Pinks. Their versatility, much like The West Winds Pinque Rosé Gin, was heralded by merchants and the navy as being the perfect companion for almost any occasion.
Pinque has been produced utilising the fantastic characters of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Margaret River region. The incorporation of Cabernet Sauvignon not only gives the gin its beautiful Rosé colour, but also adds to the red berry fruit character of the gin.
A ‘serious’ pink gin that is all about gin flavour and not sugar (!), utilising botanicals such as Strawberry Gum Leaves, Vanilla Pod, Cinnamon Quill, Lemon Myrtle and Orange Peel with a backbone of red berry fruit from the addition of the Cabernet Sauvignon. If you like flavoured gin, like Shiraz Gin, you’ll love this twist on traditional gins.
The Pinque gin has a lifted perfumed nose with red berry, sweet spice, and a hint of orange, with underlying aromas of juniper and Citrus add balance and depth. The palate is flavoursome and plump, with strawberry fruit freshened up with a Citrus backbone and finishing with soft vanilla characters.
