Tropical Burst Cocktails

Get ready to experience one of the finest Tropical Burst displays that you can craft at home, in the form of liquid gold, a carefully crafted Tropical Cocktail, using a Tropical Burst Sparkling Wine, Passionfruit & Pineapple Rum and a golden expression of fresh Pineapple, plus a little golden umbrella to top it all off.

The Sparkling Wine – Vina Povh

Vina Povh – The Povh family has been in the wine industry since they planted their first vines on the hills above Vipava Valley in 1935, their modern adaptation came into effect in 1985 when their father, Stanko, took over the family vineyards and began paving the way towards brand recognition and producing quality wine from the region.

Vina Povh – Muškatna Penina – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Soft, delicate pineapple, very ripe mango, mango skin, apricot, peach and even more zesty mango characters on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Smooth, creating an exotic/tropical party in your mouth, the sweetness and zestiness of mango, ripe apricots, both fresh and dried pineapples, with a further expression of peach and mango and a tropical zesty finish.”

The Rum – Pull The Pin

Founder Tom Foster grew up as a curious kid in a family of chefs. He joined the military at seventeen and got the opportunity to travel across the world, picking up knowledge of the local spirit production and experiencing the many spices of the world, he became known as the ‘Spice Soldier’, helping to boost morale with experimental spirits and spiced-up rations.

While in the military his love of Rum grew, from enjoying it as a drink on Christmas morning to warming him up after ice-breaking drills in Norway.

After an injury, it was time to leave his Army Commando career behind and step into his next adventure.

“Spice livens up your life, leads you on adventures and warms your body and soul. For me, creating Pull The Pin was always going to be my natural next step.” – Tom Foster (Founder)

Kerry and Tom first met while working in their military careers, he soon realised she’d be a perfect business partner, who would then help bring Pull The Pin into the world.

Kerry lives life with enthusiasm and gives her all in everything she does. She’s full of endless questions about the world and fascinated by all she sees.

Pull The Pin – Passionfruit & Pineapple Rum – Tasting Notes – “Pull The Pin and pour yourself a glass, you’ll be rewarded with ripe tropical pineapples and succulent passionfruit, smooth and clean on the palate, with a hidden display of orange zest in the background.”

The Tropical Burst Cocktail – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Fresh cream and ripe pineapple, with a good mango display coming through on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Rewarding, it’s exciting to taste, with smooth characters, delivering a hearty texture. A wonderful blend between a smoothie and a cocktail, with fresh ripe pineapple, mango, peach, apricot, starfruit, green grapes and more from the tropical side of the world. It gives a noticed, but soft, display of alcohol from the silky Rum and fizzy Sparkling Wine, both complementing, but not distracting from, the tropical display.”
