A contemporary Australian take on a classic dry gin style, distilled near Richmond in Western Sydney.Â
The Affinity gin was the first release from Grose Vale's Karu distillery in the second half of 2018. Founded and run by Nick and Ally Ayres, they've quickly established themselves as young guns of the Aussie gin industry.Â
This gin ins juniper forward, with a soft citrus zest and gentle spice. Australian botanicals, particularly the citrus, give this its contemporary flair but it is certainly in the style of a classic dry gin. Bottled at 44%, it carries a nice structure and texture neat and through cocktails.
A real staff favourite here at The Oak Barrel.
It has been awarded Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards 2019, Silver at the Tasting Australia 2019, Silver at American Distilling Institution Competition 2019, Bronze at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards 2019 and Bronze at the Australian Gin Awards 2019.
