Just one sip of this gin and you will be transported to the exotic Caribbean island of your dreams. Distilled with succulent, caramelised pineapple before being ‘fat-washed’ in coconut oil (borrowing the same technique used for our much-loved Popcorn Gin), this creation has a rich creamy texture with a wonderfully full-bodied coconut palate. Our aim with this concoction was to create a flavoursome gin that you could add to a cocktail or simply sip on its own. Inspired by the Puerto Rican Piña Colada, we replaced rum with gin and named it after the Hula Hula a cocktail by the infamous bartender Harry MacElhone of the London Ciro Club. We really think this coconut and pineapple marriage is a match made in heaven, sip it with ginger ale and a wedge of lime for a refreshing Caribbean tipple.
- 30ml Hula Hula Gin
- 20ml PX sherry

Pour Hula Hula gin, Pedro Ximenez Sherry and London Cup into a mixing glass with ice. Stir briefly then strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with a long orange twist. Just a word of warning, this one’s not for the faint hearted.
