Poor Toms Pina Colada Gin

Marrickville, NSW

The perfect drink for gettin' caught in the rain.



From The Producer

It all started years ago when Sean McGuire (now Manager of the Poor Toms Gin Bar in Marrickville) was introduced to a “life-changing” Piña Colada. It was stripped back and short, not too sweet, and served in a rocks glass without a garden of garnish. It didn’t take long for the newly-arrived Melbournian to convince Poor Toms Founder Jesse Kennedy that not only should this become the Sydney team’s drink of choice, but that the freshness of pineapple and richness of coconut would marry very well with juniper to make a fairly off-the-wall Gin.

It turned out however that, although these flavours and textures fit together easily in a glass, capturing them in the still was a different matter. Over several seasons they refined their approach to evoke a whisper of holiday while maintaining clarity of flavour and without losing any Gin-ness (it had to be balanced, colourless, clear, unsweetened, juniper-forward, and taste good with tonic).

The theatre behind the scenes involved careful hand preparation of the hero ingredients; juicing, skinning, brewing, toasting, dehydrating, fat-washing and more (of which you can listen to in depth if you’re so inclined) to end up with a Gin that captures bite-into-the-flesh pineapple freshness, luscious mouthfeel, and the seaside salinity of fresh coconut. There’s plenty of juniper of course, pandan for that green and nutty, tropical element, then layers of botanicals—lime peel, nutmeg and allspice.

All that to make 5,000 bottles—when it’s gone, it’s gone.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The most controversial tropical incursion into our fair harbour since the docking of the Ruby Princess. Pineapple and coconut – infamously hard to distill – on an unprecedented paradise sojourn with juniper, lime, pandan, nutmeg, allspice, and many more. If a young George Clooney had spent his gap year in Ibiza, it would taste like this." - Poor Toms

Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
