Evergreen Feijoa Gin
Regular price $90.00
Fanatical fans of the South American sub-tropical fruit Feijoa (pronounced ‘fee-joe-uh’) will go to great lengths to find & feast on this seasonal fruit, now bottled in Granddad Jack’s limited release Evergreen Feijoa Gin.
Feijoa fruit, eaten like a kiwifruit, has a taste that is hard to describe. Some say the centre is a little bit like a mix of strawberry & pineapple & the outer more like a pear, others have said the fruit tastes like a combination of pineapple, guava & sherbet.
In this novel & original gin, Head Distiller Luke has created a smooth taste with a soft, almost creamy texture. Starting with a strong Juniper base, the pallet is then tickled with hints of Green Apple, Toasted Coconut, Honey, Angelica Root & of course, Feijoa.
Enjoy & let your own taste buds decide what flavours come through. Best served in our signature cocktail (below) or with light & dry tonic or soda.
In the meantime, back in the distillery, the debate about how to pronounce it will continue!
