Gin of Greed - Part 6
Creative briefs can be hard sometimes - embodying the concept of 'Greed' in a Gin is almost as creative as it's gets! Hedonism is necessarily something that comes naturally to us - but you need to let loose every now and then...
Gin of Greed - We wanted to focus on what makes a Gin 'rich' - like - really rich...stupidly rich...like mother's milk...so of course - a double dose of Juniper (as per all our limited editions) was mandatory. We then played around with some blow-your-head-off Gentian Root, Roasted Wattleseed, Cloves, Earl Grey Tea, Double-Dose of Fresh Valencia Orange Peel - then we tightened the nuts and bolts on this baby with some Green Cardamom, Pepperberry - and the rug that tied the room together? Some Almonds and the allusive Orris Root.
But we didn't stop there.
We then raided the distillery for some barrel aged brandy-base - and settled on an experimental spirit that we spiced with Chai herbs from the folks out at Quo Chai - which we matured for 18 months in some American octave (80L) casks that held some of Australia's richest, most expensive Shiraz for 4 years - blending the spirits together for some serious weight and presence.
Rich Gin? Yeah - Hedonism at it's finest.
