1808 PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEE ON THE DISTILLATION OF SUGAR AND MOLASSES
Lord Binning in the Chair; London Distiller Mr. John Bocket Called and Examined by the Committee:
“Do you know whether it is practical to produce Gin from Molasses?"
"I believe very good Gin may be made from Molasses Spirit certainly."
"Can you make as good Gin from Molasses as from Corn?"
"Molasses Gin gives universal satisfaction.”
Grapefruit was first documented in Barbados in 1750 as the ‘Forbidden Fruit’; Lemongrass is native to many tropical climates.
Combined in this Gin they uniquely excite the nose and palate. Far from forbidden, this gin beautifully represents the character of our tropical island home.
There are few drinks that mark the Barbadian spirit of celebration like traditional Sorrel.
Our festive Hibiscus-Sorrel Sugar-Cane gin starts with a traditional juniper and citrus base, which is then infused with our artisanal Sorrel, Rosa-Sinensis Hibiscus flowers and nutmeg to create a sweet, aromatic gin that is best served over ice with maybe a splash of soda.
As a bright daytime drink, this gin would be hard to beat.
Due to its exotic nature, Pineapple became a symbol of affluence and hospitality in the English New World and Europe, with carvings of the fruit often displayed on front doors and gate posts as symbols of welcome to travelling strangers.
Pineapple’s sweet-tart flavour makes this gin a great experience chilled, on ice or with a light mixer like sparkling water or unsweetened tonic water.
