The Eighth Day of Gin-Mas is here!
Fords gin is a collaboration between Master distiller, Charles Maxwell and industry stalwart Simon Ford. The idea was to create a balanced juniper-forward gin that could work in any gin cocktail.
Fords has a traditional base of juniper and coriander balanced by citrus, florals and spices. The botanicals are steeped for 15 hours before distillation which delivers an aromatic, fresh and floral spirit with elegant notes of jasmine and grapefruit.
Brogan’s Way Evening Light gin
Brogan’s Way Distillery opened a couple of month’s ago and I am really impressed with distiller Brogan Carr’s work. She’s one of the few distillers in Australia to have completed the prestigious Heriot-Watt University MSc. in Brewing and Distilling, and making the three different Brogan’s Way gins was part of her thesis.
Evening Light gin is their fresh and fruity, easy drinking gin. Unique botanicals such as fresh mangos, fresh raspberries and organic white grapefruit juice form a fruity and unconventional backbone, complimented with sweet piney juniper and warm cassia.
Red Hen Gin
The three Vallelonga brothers and their best mate Luke, set up Red Hen Distilling in 2016 and won the Champion Small Batch Gin Award at the Australian Distilled Spirits Award within a month.
Native muntrie berries, local citrus and peppercorn give this gin a bright, vibrant flavour.
Kilderkin Distillery Original Larrikin gin
Scott and Chris, two friends with with a lifelong interest in distilling and brewing, set out to fulfill their ambition to open a distillery. Kilderkin Distillery opened in 2016, just outside Ballarat, a city with a long history to Australian distilling.
Original Larrikin is their Australian style gin. It has lemon myrtle, with hints of spice and warmth from native botanicals. A really well-balanced gin, with incredibly smooth mouthfeel.
Tiny Bear Distillery, The Doctor gin
Damien and Manda decided against buying their first home to put their money towards the dream of owning their own distillery in Knox, Victoria. Here they make their own base spirit using kale!
The Doctor gin is an intriguing blend of dill, basil, Vietnamese mint, sage, liquorice root, cinnamon, and hibiscus.
Animus Arboretum Gin
Four gin-loving friends set up Animus Distillery in their home before establishing themselves in Kyneton, just outside Melbourne. Arboretum, one of their three award-winning gins, is complex and herbaceous, utilising a range of local estate-grown ingredients: Fresh strawberry gum leaf, lemon thyme, rosemary, oranges and native bush tomato. This one is for the martini-lovers.
Reed & Co. Distilling Remedy gin
Created by two chefs, Hamish and Rachel, Remedy gin is all about flavour. Wild & native botanicals result in a distinctively Australian Gin. Pronounced Juniper, eucalyptus, pine and followed by a rounded finish of green tea, shiso & honey.
Lawrenny Distilling Van Diemen’s gin
Van Diemen’s Gin is infused with a blend of traditional and progressive botanicals cut to strength using the pure waters of the River Derwent. It is wonderfully balanced combination of bold juniper, refined herbal notes and fresh citrus.
