It appears that you can make jam out of just about anything these days --
even gin and whiskey. Take Bathtub Gin Artisanal Jam for example. Okay,
they aren't really made of gin and whiskey. They are made from the best
organicBathtub Gin Jam fruit available that is blended into a surprising line of jams
with a touch of a potent potable to give it something special that you
won't find in other preserves.
The company was started by two sisters with a flair for making homemade jam and a passion for cocktails. The entire line of jams was inspired by the 20s and 30s, Prohibition, speakeasys, and the days of homemade hooch. Flavors include London Pink Gin, Peach Brandy Blueberry, Whiskey Cherry Tomato, and Coconut Rum Pineapple.
The jams are carefully crafted in small batches for maximum quality control. Each jar has the art deco look and feel of a bygone era of first plenty and then poverty wedged between two world wars. Each flavor is unique and a delectable mix of fruit, alcohol, and spices to give your taste buds a whole new adventure. While alcohol is used in the cooking process to add flavor the actual alcohol is dispersed in the heating process.
