In the words of the Poor Toms crew, "Piña Colada Gin is the most controversial tropical incursion into our fair harbour since the docking of the Ruby Princess."

Piña Colada Gin is the drink we absolutely need right now. It's a drink that will take us away from our coronavirus restriction blues, and transport us to a tropical island we can only dream about right now.

Usually, a piña colada features white rum, coconut cream, and pineapple juice—and the gin features these classic ingredients in its botanicals. 

"The nose offers a gentle bow-bump of candied pineapple, sea spray, and gula melaka. The pallet, a toe-dip of milky coconut rough followed by a welcome tidal wave of brine-soaked juniper and lime peel. If George Clooney had spent his gap year in Ibiza, it would taste like this."

Poor Toms has only released 5,000 of their Piña Colada Gin, so you're going to want to get your hands on it sooner rather than later.
