15th March 2023
The Devil has released his Demons up onto the surface with the devilish task to craft an evil, Lethal Cocktail that will put the taste buds of millions through hell, as their palates are ignited with fiery flames that will then rise up the nostrils and have you coughing uncontrollably, get ready to craft your doom with this Lethal Cocktail.
The Sparkling Wine – Jasmine Monet
Jasmine Monet is convinced that the terroir on which the grapes are grown, determines the personality and mood of a good Sparkling Wine, that’s why they’ve chosen several vineyards from the Gualtallary and Valle de Uco areas, they found the soil and climate to be perfect for the production of their Sparkling Wines.
With a great passion for respecting the environment, being sustainable and working for the future, they protect their terroir, to ensure that in generations to come, it can still produce the quality levels we get to taste today.

The Spritz – Pinkster
Let’s begin the story with the founder, Stephen Marsh, who unfortunately came to the realisation that wine and beer no longer agreed with him, and when looking for a good drink he only had the option of Vodka or Gin. With Gin being his preferred choice, he started his search high and low for the blend he hoped to fall in love with, but found the juniper expression to be too strong for his liking, so, when you can’t find something, you make it, and that’s what he did.
He wasn’t intentionally creating a pink drink, it’s just that after working his way through an entire fruit bowl, raspberry delivered the best flavour. With the recipe developed, pals started encouraging him to go commercial.
Despite the growth of Pinkster Gin, Stephen still personally oversees the production, ensuring consistency from batch to batch.
Pinkster Spritz – Raspberry and Hibiscus – Tasting Notes – “Like homemade raspberry syrup, with hibiscus/floral notes.”
Pinkster Royale – Tasting Notes – “Soft, delicate raspberry aroma, the palate comes in with a wider display of raspberries, from very ripe to soon to be ripe raspberries.”

A Lethal Cocktail Tasting Notes
Aroma – “If you can brave the aroma, you’ll find a wide array of spices clawing up your nostrils, you won’t be able to spend long on the aroma, needing quick breaks, but you’ll stumble across some syrupy raspberries on the aroma.”
Flavour – “A spice-tormented hell awaits, with chilli and spicy peppers sticking their pitchforks into your palate, but not all want to harm you, there are distant waves of pink grapefruit and syrupy raspberries on the palate.”
