For too long, Paw Paws have been doing it tough. Firstly, is it pawpaw, paw-paw, paw paw or perhaps papaya? Calling out from the fruit box year-round, these aromatic delights sit waiting for the opportunity to shine in something other than skin care, yet knowing that every summer they’ll be passed over by distillers in favour of yet another peach gin. Well no longer! Rescuing those exotic paw paws from the depths of winter, we paired them with mangos, banana and vanilla to give them new life in a delightfully tropical gin. We’ve kept the strength slightly lower to accentuate those spectacular fruity flavours, crank up the much-needed sunshine vibes, and give our Paw Paw gin a beautiful sweet note to finish on.

Paw-paws are actually in season all year round in Australia, and we really wanted to feature a fruit that no-one else had utilised before. Naturally we scratched ‘peach gin’ off the list pretty quickly. Yep, we’re sassy like that.
