At Granddad Jack's, staff mark their one year anniversary by being given the opportunity to work alongside Luke (Head Distiller) to think up and create their very own spirit! From concept to choosing the botanicals, putting together the label, distilling the product and sharing their story…the release is entirely theirs!

Di Josipovic, Head Designer and Chief of Finding Things at Granddad Jack’s has worked tirelessly with us to help build our brand, source materials, create labels and make things happen and now a year down the track has created her own spirit too! 

We’d like to introduce our first release of 2021, Di’s Sweet Pear-fection. 

A  spirit influenced by her heritage & inspired by Croatian 'Kruškovac' 

'Kruškovac' [pron. kroo-shko-vutz] is a fine golden liqueur made from tree-ripened pears which for over a century has been an inseparable part of Croatian customs & celebrations. 

"My parents migrated from Croatia to their beloved Australia, in 1968 in search of a better life. I grew up with shots of 'Kruškovac' marking many milestones in life and to this day trays of shot glasses are passed around at gatherings to toast joyful celebrations and even to respectfully toast & honour the departure of loved ones. It seemed apt then to mark this milestone by creating Granddad Jack’s interpretation of it”.  - Di Josipovic

This interpretation reflects the popular & distinctive sweet, intensive aroma and flavours by blending Ripe Pears and Vanilla Bean with Granddad Jack's 65 Miles Gin (already full of Cinnamon, Clove, Orange, Star Anise and Cardamon) creating a sweet, smooth taste with a soft warming heat.

Best enjoyed as a shot neat, sipped on ice or use it as a welcome ingredient in ingenious cocktails such as the below, concocted with the help of Roman Rabik (GJ’s European Brand Ambassador, who happens to coincidentally be based in Croatia! Small World!)
