Our pick of the creations from Ambleside in the Adelaide Hills, a gin that's savoury and dry thanks to generous juniper.
This aroma is immediately dry and with a good structure that leads into an appealing, savoury palate. A little light on entry but good finish and excellent length with measured, controlled spice on the back palate. Healthy amounts of juniper provide the "dry" through the journey.
Botanicals include rosemary thyme, kaffir lime and sage, with jalapeno providing a bit of kick also.
The family-rum Ambleside distillery is located in Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills. They use a single-run vapour-infused distillaiton through an Australian-made copper still.
