Featured Product: Pineapple Parfait Gin
"A contemporary tropical fruit salad gin packed with flavour that tastes like a holiday."
Opened with much fanfare and many wide-eyed guests on the 15th August 1971, our iconic Big Pineapple is testament to the magic of big dreams and a bit of fibreglass. What a sight it was, (and still is) to see! This delicious sub-tropical fruit salad gin celebrates that day and the Sunshine Coast’s most loved tourist attraction. Pineapple, passionfruit, strawberry, mango, vanilla and coconut combine to make a surprising, delightful and evocative gin. You might even get a little nostalgic and misty-eyed about those glorious pineapple parfait desserts that made visiting The Big Pineapple the BEST. DAY. EVER.
So how did we celebrate The Big Pineapple's Big 5-0?
Our great friends at Maleny Food Co were just as excited about our famous neighbour's birthday as we were and created an incredible world first.
PINEAPPLE PARFAIT GIN SORBET!
Using our Pineapple Parfait Gin and served with fresh local Pineapple, Strawberry and Passionfruit, we teamed up with the guys up in Maleny to create a super creamy, non-dairy sorbet reminiscent of a desert you would have been served in the 'Pineapples heyday of the 70's and 80's.
And of course, we had to incorporate it into a delicious cocktail at our Distillery Door - The Pineapple Parfait Martini (see below).
