The ginner takes it all — well, that’s the mantra of one company that is now delivering 3-litres of pink gin right to your doorstep. Just when you thought coronavirus had ruined our summers, in comes some clever so-and-so with a way to bring the good stuff into our homes with contactless delivery.
As the Government clamps down on heading to the shops for non-essential items, there’s been a big debate on whether alcohol is an essential item. I’m calling it now, with the weather getting better and the nights getting longer, a chilled goblet of pink gin with plenty of ice while you sit in the garden is a definite essential.
Ensuring happy hour goes on for a lot longer as you set up shop with your own at-home pub, Pinkster is selling a “Giant Gin Box” and it’s a
snip sip at just £100. That might sound like a lot, but it’s currently on sale and reduced from £135.
The description explains, “From boats to BBQs, Glastonbury to Glyndebourne, it’s gin on tap with our stylish and sustainable bag-in-box. Equivalent to just over four regular bottles, this holds over 100 serves, saving you a whopping £50 and a load of glass recycling. Here’s to portable pouring.”
While you won’t be able to go boating or to Glastonbury for the foreseeable future *sob*, you can have your own imaginary Glasto as you get sloshed in your garden. Why not get your neighbours to join in from a safe distance and put on their own concert from next-door? It already sounds like a great idea.
We weren’t the only ones who had our attention turned by Pinkster. After the post went out on Instagram, thirsty gin fans couldn’t wait to pour a glass. One wrote, “On tap. Just putting it out there 😉”, while another said, “Wow! This might get me through home schooling! 😂”.
A third added, “This might get me through!!! 😍💕😍💕😍😍 😂”. Even though we’re here to support sensible drinking, I’m not sure how long it would take me to get through this during such a time of crisis.
You might remember when pink gin was all the rage over the Christmas period, but summer is supposed to be a big boom for the industry. With us confined to our homes for who knows how long, at least companies like Pinkster are still making a living and keeping us stocked through coronavirus.
