IRON BALLS GIN 700ml
Freshly pulped pineapple is then added to the bottom of the still with our botanically steeped spirit. The distillation process can now start, and another botanical absorption and interaction takes place via vapour infusion towards the top of the still.
SMALL BATCH HEATED SLOWLY
Distillation is continuously monitored and completed through a slow heating process, in small batches, to ensure the character and quality of our final spirit.
Our freshly cut and juices pineapples are slow cooking in the pot. Too much heat would result in a burnt sugar flavour and leave the pineapple flavour behind to be disposed!
HAND BOTTLED AND LABELLED
Every single bottle is checked, labelled, and roped by hand, before being shipped across the globe. There are no machines in the world that can welcome our singular bottle shape you would find nowhere else in this world.
As a former BKK expat I witnessed the launch of Iron Balls. It turned me into a gin lover at once. This unique product with its unique brand is outstanding by all means. The Thai spices blend perfectly with the citrus and floral notes in this gin. Once the best kept secret and now enjoying worldwide acclaim. A true delight. Thanks, Ashley and friends! Peter
Lovely subtle fruity gin that reminds me of our trip to Thailand. 👍
I'm actually really sad that I have to write this review. Iron Ball is a fantastic Gin hands down in the top 3 Gins in the world. That being said, this order and shipping went really wrong. First it went to the wrong address (billing) not the requested shipping address. That would of been okay , but sadly I'm in military transit state and am no longer living at the billing address. The Iron Ball rep asked me who signed for it and what happen to the gin. After calling some folks still on base I was able to get a hold of new residents. They were willing to return to shipper but iron ball rep said no that's okay they will ship to the requested address. 10 Days after that I followed up to ask for a status update and I received a UPS label for a person in California, when the requested shipping address was North Carolina. After almost 30 days and a missed birthday the Gin has still not arrived.
Which stinks because Iron Ball is my favorite and I have sent gifts before and even brought some back from Thailand and Japan because it's just that damn good. I hope soon the gin will be delivered.
As of 29 Apr 22 Update to the missing bottle. Iron Ball did attempt to send another bottle but UPS has now lost that bottle. I reached out to the customer service team to just ask for a refund and the stated they are working with UPS to figure out the situation. It has been almost 2 months and the gin has failed to reach the destination nor have I received a refund. At this point I had to submit a dispute with my credit card. The iron ball team said I got a refund from UPS but UPS stated they refund the shipper. (See photo)
Again the Gin is incredible but the shipping issues and tone of Phil's emails are kind of rude.

Sorry to read that you guys had to write such a report.
It would be good if you can take this review down, as we have send a replacement bottle as spoken without asking anything else in return.
UPS did a mistake and someone signed for the bottle, which hasn’t been yourself and they should not have left it there.
To get UPS to reroute seemed a difficult task talking hours to UPS, which they ask me to provide proof of who has received the bottle.
We took it serious and have send right away a bottle to your address provided.
Here a timeline:
20. march parcel left to wrong address
27. March we contacted you as we found out the error
29. March we get infos that we can’t reroute or do anything as the bottle has been accepted at the old address
30. March we informed you we will send replacement bottle to the right address and that the people received the package can keep it.
We did everything possible and hope the bottle reach soon the right destination
Anything you need let me know
With best regards
war ziemlich erstaunt ueber die tolle aromatik und dennoch gute frische. super balanciert.

Must admit I chose to buy Iron balls after seeing photos of the bottle on Instagram, but I’m delighted that the taste is excellent I tried it as recommended with pineapple and basil leaves
Thank you Helen :)
