As if you needed a reason to get on the grog before the socially-acceptable time of midday (10.30am if it’s a special occasion), you can now tuck into a jar of gin-spiked jam thanks to brain geniuses who thought to make a preserve to mildly pickle yourself with.
Gin Jam from Pinkster Gin has hit Aussie shops, and is made out of the leftover fruits after the distilling process of the brightly-coloured gin. Because that particular drop is made with mostly raspberries (and juniper, otherwise it is not a gin thank you very much), it’s a raspberry jam that pairs well with its boozy parent.

Pinkster Gin & Gin Jam now on special at Vintage Cellars, 700ml and 227g, both for $75! The original Pinkster gin is made from real raspberries, deliciously dry with a hint of fruit and an exceptionally smooth finish. The accompanying jam – a natural by-product of Pinkster Gin – is a mildly alcoholic fruity number produced with gin-soaked raspberries.
It’s apparently very mildly alcoholic, so go hell for leather when schmearing it on toast or a scone with some cream – hell, make a brandy cream to go with it. Lean right into getting a buzz on at the breakfast table.
The jars of spiked gin jam go for $9.99 a pop, and you can find ’em at your local Vintage Cellars or online over here. And if you’re looking for something to adorn your Christmas trifle with this year that’ll set nan off like a frog in a sock, Pinkster also sells boozy raspberries that are soaked in the gin by the jar, so pop one of those in your basket if you happen upon them.Image: Pinkster Gin
