As far as Sunshine Coast collaborations go, they don’t come much better than this.
One of the region’s most-loved restaurants has teamed up with new Noosa distillery, Fortune, to create a very special kind of drink.
The Sum Yung Guys X 'Fortune Pho’ Gin has been months in the making and is just now, ready for the drinking. So what is a pho gin, you ask?
Designed with the taste of Vietnamese pho soup in mind, this unique gin is almost the Sum Yung Guys restaurant menu in a liquid form. Featuring very distinct flavours like fish sauce, spring onion, bean shoots, chilli and seaweed, this gin is clean, bursting with freshness and very delicious.
To celebrate the SYG Pho Gin’s launch into the world of lip-smacking spirits, the bar crew have created a unique cocktail with the gin as its star.
Available at both Sum Yung Guys and Fortune, the Pho Sho cocktail is a salivating South East Asian concoction, featuring Sum Yung Guys Pho Gin, Dolin Dry Vermouth, fresh pineapple juice, lime, a handful of fragrant Thai basil and a hit of dehydrated chilli, garnished with pineapple candy.
If you’d rather drink your gin in the comfort of your own home, 200ml ($40) and 700ml ($120) bottles can now be purchased at Fortune and online here.
This marks an impressive start of a list of collaborations for Fortune, we can’t wait to see what’s in-store for the distillery next.
