A crisp, clean and remarkably well-balanced gin from the Archie Rose distillery, located 15 minutes from Sydney's CBD in Rosebery.Ã‚Â
Distilling gin, vodka and whisky, this gin is one of their flagship products while the whisky is maturing.Ã‚Â
Easily one of the most versatile Australian gins on the market and a great entry point for craft gins. Blood lime, pepperleaf, river mint and lemon myrtle are all in botanicals.
Each botanical is distilled separately.Ã‚Â
Tasting notes from the distillery:
Nose:Ã‚Â Balanced, complex and multifaceted. Initial aromas of pine forest and green peppercorn subside to allow lemon balm, violet and freeze-dried raspberries to come to the fore. Earthy tones develop along with the scent of carrot cake and spiced nuts, accents of musk and an assortment of flowers.
Palate:Ã‚Â Weighted with a velvety texture, the nose is carried through with summer orchard fruits, freshly mown grass and honey-drizzled ginger cake.
Finish:Ã‚Â Spiced oranges, lemon verbena and spearmint linger on the tongue along with subtle herbal pepper notes.
