Intro to Aussie Gin 5 Pack Serving suggestions and gin tasting notes
The pack includes a selection of five of the following gins:
GRANDDAD JACKS CRAFT DISTILLERY – TWO PENCILS GIN
Smooth, rich London Dry enhanced with citrus or sweet liqueurs; a real juniper-gin. To make a penny, Granddad Jack would go to the Timaru races and break a full pencil into two halves, sharpening each end and selling them for the same price as a full one. This was the first time he had made money.
Served best in a classic Gin and Tonic with fresh cucumber and ice.
LOCH BREWERY & DISTILLERY – CLASSIC DRY GIN
Juniper led, expressive, fragrant and soft on the finish. Mix as a G&T or Negroni, also enjoyable neat over ice with Lemon garnish. 12 Botanicals: juniper, cinnamon, cardamom, angelica, liquorice root, mace, cassia bark, coriander, nutmeg, oris root, orange & ginger.
Underground Spirits – Shiraz Gin with Tasmanian Pepperberries
Based on the signature gin, this limited release, topped with tantalising Tasmanian pepperberries. Left to mature in a home of imported French oak barrels, Shiraz & Pepperberry French Oak Gin is the darling of the distillery. A modern classic; an experience that goes a little bit deeper, tasting noticeably richer. Fuller bodied notes of the Shiraz smashes with the spicy notes you are expecting, the finish is warm and delectable.
Best served neat over ice and garnish with fresh raspberries.
IRONBARK DISTILLERY – 313 SIGNATURE DRY GIN
This gin is small batch distilled and has a scent and flavour like no other. Their secret is perfect proportions of carefully selected, minimal ingredients and a specialised filtering process, allowing them to retain the superb flavour profile achieved during distillation.
Enjoy in a traditional G&T
McHenry Distillery – Classic Dry Gin
An elegant smooth gin – like a magic carpet ride of the botanicals. Citrus peel is present and balanced with a small amount of star anise, coriander seeds, cardamon and orris root all beautifully balanced with the juniper. This gin is a very popular product at our sales locations.
Perfect in a G&T with your preferred garnish. Also with a Gin Martini.
Never Never Distilling Co. – Triple Juniper Gin
Aromas of pine needle, brushed rosemary, lemon oil, earthy root and fragrant pepper. Strong in cocktails, especially negroni and martini serves. Plush and oily, juniper-heavy aromas combine with citrus, fresh sawn pine, coriander, faint anise and white pepper warmth. Follows through with a silky wave of juniper gelato, citrus peel and delicate pepper-cinnamon warmth. Leaner and more linear to finish; the spice and lime pick up where the juniper trails off. Excellent length.
Summer on the coast; rock pools, sea spray and hints of shell fish. Inspired by the Aussie coast and its native pantry. Citrus notes from lemon aspen and Meyer lemon to give a citrus hit, offset by the savoury flavours from local sea parsley & fresh coriander leaf. All rounded out with classic juniper. A gin which opens when added with tonic.
Serve with a premium tonic and garnish with a slice of lemon and sprig of thyme.
Boatrocker Brewers and Distillers – Jungle Gin
Jungle Gin delivers big punchy flavours. Inspired by SE Asia, this gin is distilled using the traditional one-shot method where the makrut lime leaves, lemongrass and ginger are distilled alongside the more traditional juniper, coriander, cassia & citrus peel. A gin of unrivalled aromatics and flavour. Enjoy as a G&T or in your favourite gin cocktails for a unique twist.
JUNGLE GIN’S bright aromatics work wonderfully with a dry tonic garnished with a lime leaf, yet equally well in any citrus forward cocktail.
