In terms of our ambition for our first gin, we didn’t want to make another London Dry Gin but we couldn’t ignore juniper. The way we have approached it is that the juniper is the canvas and the other botanicals paint the picture. The tassie pepper is brilliant on the palate, giving us warmth rather than heat. Lemon myrtle is a beautiful, complex and unique alternative to lemon peel.
Perhaps most interesting is our use of whole oranges. It’s unusual to use fresh produce in gin but Australian citrus is highly aromatic and supports the spicier botanicals like coriander, cardamom and star anise.
Ultimately it’s about trying to deliver the best of both worldsâ€¦a perfect, classic gin and something that would fascinate and delight even the most hardened gin fanatic spicy but with great citrus, a truly modern Australian gin.
And above all, we think it’s an incredible base for exploring the craft of cocktail making, from a refreshing G&T with a twist (try it with orange), to a classic martini or a complex and layered negroni.
