Davidson Plum Gin Jam is a thing and yes, you need it in your life

Cape Byron Distillery, home of the award-winning Brookie’s Gin, has officially launched its Byron Slow GinJam

From the production of Brookie’s Slow Gin, a rare and one-of-a-kind gin, with native Davidson Plums, the Distillery is left with kilograms of gin infused Davidson Plums. With sustainability at the core of everything they do, the Distillery decided to repurpose these plums with fresh Davidson Plums to create a truly unique flavoured jam. The result is a perfectly balanced tart, sweet and tangy jam that is vegan, gluten and alcohol-free.

“We are blessed with an abundance of incredible native Australian produce in our own backyard in Byron, and we couldn’t be prouder that we can have fun with such unique flavours in our products. The Davidson Plum, the jewel of our rainforest, is packed with an array of vitamins and minerals. It is a true ‘bushfood’ delicacy, and we couldn’t be more stoked that people can now enjoy it in a jam,” says Eddie Brook, Co-Founder of Brookie’s Gin. 

“I believe that native produce, and what is unique to our land, should be at the core of our food and drink culture. For us, it’s about constantly learning and having fun with the different flavours Australia has to offer! With everything we do, we always ensure sustainable practices and environmental consideration is our top priority and we’re excited that this resulted in a Gin Jam.” 

Brookie’s Byron Slow GinJam can be spread on your favourite bread, scone or cracker. It’s also the perfect addition to cheese platters and mixed-in cocktails.
