A navy strength version of the XLCR gin from Mudgee's Baker Williams distillery.
Bold and vibrant, this gin carries citrus at its core - just like the standard XLCR - with local cumquat and orange,
The gin takes its name from a fishing boat owned by distiller Nathan Baker's great grandfather. XLCR was built in 1903 in Illuka, on New South Wales' north coast.
The Baker Williams distillery was established in 2011 by Helen Baker and Nathan Williams. Located in Mudgee in New South Wales' Central West, they have been making craft spirits and liqueurs in the otherwise wine-dominated region.
As well as distilling spirit to be laid down in casks to eventually become things like whisky, they are producing gin, liqueurs and schnapps immediately.
Their bottles are instantly recognisable thanks to the striking labelling and long-drip wax seal.
