Bobby's Pinang Raci Gin
Introducing Bobby's Pinang Raci Gin, a 42% ABV masterpiece in a 700ml bottle.
Inspired by the flavors of traditional Pinang Raci, this gin is a harmonious blend of cardamom, clove, nutmeg, and lemongrass. Its botanical-rich profile makes it the perfect foundation for crafting a variety of cocktails, unlocking a world of creative mixology possibilities.
Pinang Raci literally translates as a mishmash of spices. Grandfather Jacobus ‘Bobby’ Alfons, the inspiration and namesake of Bobby’s Gin, was well known for skilfully infusing Dutch jenever with spices that reminded him of home: Naku on the island of Ambon.
As a result, he created and spiced up his own jenever!
Pinang Raci Spice Blend No.1 celebrates the flavours of grandfather Bobby’s birthplace Naku on Moluccan ‘spice island’ Ambon, in a contemporary Schiedam Dry Gin of 2022.
Aromatic, floral hints and fresh cut ginger notes of galangal, zesty citrus and lemongrass, cooling laurel (daun salam) and vibrant juniper, followed by warming spice hints of turmeric, cinnamon and cloves, ending with orange sweetness on the back of the nose.
Opens with the distinct cooling sensation of daun salam and lemongrass. Opening flavours evolve to sweet orange, fresh coriander notes and vibrant juniper.
Pleasant floral notes of galangal are simultaneously playing on the background, while the oily mouthfeel is gripping all flavours together.
The firm mid palate is intense and built with warm, herbal and woody spices cinnamon, turmeric, cloves and ginger.
Bobby’s Pinang Raci Spice Blend No.1 is a very lively dry gin that tastefully balances the diverse flavour characteristics of South-Eastern and Indonesian spices.
The finish is long lingering, smooth and dry with a peppery salute of Bobby’s signature cubeb peppers.
