Spirits of the Summer

Shirl the Pearl Gin

Inspired by a generational Brook family recipe, Eddie Brook has produced this cumquat gin that every enthusiast will be jumping to add to their bar cart. ‘Shirl the Pearl’ is a bright and citrusy spirit which pairs the natural acidity and mild bitterness of Australian cumquats with the unique flavour profile of Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin. With bright notes of orange blossom, mandarin and marmalade, it makes for an uplifting tipple whether you’re shaking up a citrusy sour or leveraging the sweet acidity for a modern twist on a classic cocktail.
