Brookie's Shirl the Pearl Cumquat Gin


Shirl the Pearl, Cumquat Gin with fresh uplifting notes, zesty characteristics, and a long finish. Expect refreshing waves of orange blossom.

Eddie’s grandmother Shirley aka ‘Shirl the Pearl’ was a pocket rocket. Adventurer, skier, and one of Australia’s first female pilots, Shirl also made a mean bootleg Cumquat Gin. Inspired by Shirl, we steep locally grown Cumquats in our Brookie’s Dry Gin for several months and balance the spirit to create springtime in a glass! This is her recipe and an ode to Shirl the Pearl.

Try Shirl with Tonic, in a Spicy Margi with Tequila and Lime Juice, or mix with Lemon, Honey, and Hot Water for a twist on the well-loved Hot Toddy. Check out more recipes here.
