Please note - we are almost out of presentation boxes (thanks Covid) so this bottle doesn't come with one so the price has been lowered. We can supply other gins or vodka without the box at the same price, send us an email email@example.com
This batch also uses previously loved bottles (because we are nearly out of bottles - see above), they present as brand new as the kiln fired labels are baked into the glass, because of this we always planned to reuse them. Front of bottle has handwritten on it T.L.D.T.T.of.t.S. The batch is FO2021 .
This is our Silver Medal winning London Dry - not to dry though as the barley in the base adds a hint of sweetness.
Macedonian Juniper, Villa Franca Lemon Peel, Lime Peel, Nutmeg, Red Pepper, Green Pepper, Almonds, Cinnamon Sticks, Cardamom, Poppy Seeds, Liquorice, Coriander, Angelica.
Final distillation was 23rd July 2021 and we integrated for 30 days before bottling, will continue to develop flavour in the bottle for the next three or so months (even after you open it).
This batch has been distilled four times and went through 20 vapour infusion extraction cycles to extract the flavour from the botanicals. We also used Antipodes Water for the extraction to make it that tiny bit smoother.
As usual the pure gin was also diluted with Antipodes water to achieve 46% ABV.
BTW there are about 3 kilograms of Gladfield Barley and 1,000 hours of sunshine required to fill each grain to glass Gin bottle, not to mention about 24 hours of distilling.
Pair with Fever Tree Tonic Naturally Light for a refreshing low calorie drink. Or you can enjoy with a few lumps of ice.
This is our version of a classic London Dry Gin, the citrus has been dialled back to let the Juniper have a strong base.
The botanicals literally dance on your tongue and have an incredibly long finish. We think the flavour is so good this recipe will be our standard for when we make London Dry again in future batches.
Awarded Silver in the 2021 New Zealand Spirit Awards.
