Salt Bush Australian Gin
We set out to make a gin with Australian flavours and decided to make West Australian saltbush the hero. Instead of using traditional citrus for a backbone we use Lemon myrtle and Aniseed myrtle combined with fresh Quandongs (Native plums). Our spice element is Tasmanian pepper berries gently crushed and added to the boiler. After distillation we add fresh salt bush and Sandalwood to give complexity. Juniper is increased slightly with coriander to make sure there is no doubt this is really a gin.
Vibrant green with interesting aromas of Quandong fruit and long spice flavours of pepper and juniper. The balance with the salt bush is amazing and multiple flavours leap out of the glass.
Garnished with a sliver of orange peel and a light tonic over ice. The Australian bush in a glass.
