A Toast To Gin Jam

Tea and gin are two quintessentially British drinks, and despite neither actually originating in the UK they’ve both become required refreshment over here. 

We’ve made them both very much our own, and enjoy them both almost as much as each other - usually at different times of day, of course. 

But, the Gin Festival team were wondering, are the two treats actually interchangeable? Instead of tea and toast for breakfast, could we actually have gin and toast instead? Could afternoon tea become afternoon gin?

Our Gin of the Month is giving you full permission to try just that. Prepare to turn your teatime upside down with the latest ingenious offering from Pinkster

Pinkster have made some cheekily alcoholic gin jam, which can be spread on your morning slice just like the regular strawberry variety, and can cheer up your scones in the afternoon. 

The Pinkster Gin Jam is all natural, made with raspberries leftover from the gin-making process, and gives you a ginjection of your favourite spirit in spreadable form. 

Not only is is perfect for sunrise and high tea, but it can also be added to a cocktail as a flavour-boosting ingredient, so you can enjoy it in a glass as the sun goes down. 

In buying a jar of Pinkster Gin Jam, you’re not only brightening up your breakfast, but also helping to tackle food waste at the same time. 

That’s because the berries used to make Gin Jam would otherwise be headed for the bin, being a bit too mangled to make it into Pinkster Gin itself. 

Get a jar for yourself or for a very special someone, and let us know what a wonderful difference it makes to your day.
