Like gin? Like Ketchup and Mayonnaise? Then you’re going to love the new Gin Mayo and Gin Chup from The Netherlands – now on sale in Australia, as well as a variety of shops across Europe, South Korea, and the United States,
This line of alcohol-infused condiments created in Amsterdam: Gin Mayo and Gin Chup — are here to help liven up your lunch.
First shared with diners in 2017 as a house-made condiment on the menu at Mossel & Gin, a seafood restaurant in Amsterdam, the mayo quickly became a cult pantry staple, and the brand took on a life of its own.
Packaged in a squeeze-friendly tube, the gluten free sauce is crafted on creamy Zaanse mayonnaise, which is made from a recipe from the 1950s. It’s then elevated with a hit of Bobby’s Gin, which is distilled in the Dutch city of Schiedam and boasts a base of eight different botanicals. Clocking in at two percent alcohol per tube, the Gin Mayo supposedly is a solid match to some seafood or fried chicken, but also brings a little something extra to that sandwich or burger.
Recently, the brand has added to its line of products with a zesty gin-infused ketchup, or Gin Chup, which creators say works a treat when accompanying the likes of a triple-cheese toastie. Like its mayonnaise sibling, it also boasts two percent alcohol per tube — though you can expect that to translate to a festive flavour punch, rather than any overpowering boozy aftertaste.
