British company Pinkster is making a profit off of a natural byproduct of its gin by using fresh, gin-soaked raspberries left over from production to make its latest product, Gin Jam.
After gin production, the raspberries are used to create another Pinkster product, Boozy Berries, which were a hit last season with 18,000 jars sold.
According to Pinkster founder Stephen Marsh, the leftover raspberries from Boozy Berries that are “too mashed” are now being used to make Gin Jam.
The slightly alcoholic jam (only 2.5 percent ABV) is produced by The Wooden Spoon Preserving Company, which is dedicated to artisan products and independent retailers.
Gin Jam is available online for £6.50 (or $8.11) and at select retailers and bars in the UK.
