Crafted by Barossa Valley Winemakers in their new venture - Barossa Distilling Company - South Australia. A Winemakers Gin that is quintessentially Barossa.
The Gin has 12 botanicals. Along with the traditional juniper and citrus, is coriander, angelica and orris root. Ginger, fennel and almond add warmth, structure and a robust mouthfeel, while chamomile, cassia and local lavender provide savoury floral notes. Oranges add vibrant citrus. The pioneering use of toasted French oak in the distillation delivers hints of vanilla, a generosity and robust mid palate weight, just as it does in a fine wine.
Barossa’s Distilling Company founders now have to goals for the future: creating seasonal gins, with local native botanicals including lemon-scented grasses once used by Aboriginal communities on kangaroo meat grilled over open coals, and produce magnums of Gin.
Making a gin in the heartland of Aussie wine? Disruptive. Courageous. Brilliant.
First batch will be available mid-July.
