QUATTRO JUNIPER GIN
Enticing, fresh aromas of lemon and crushed-pine-needle juniper, followed by a floral sweetness and background woody cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Palate is punchy, full and complex. Piney blue juniper flavours, spicy and fruity red juniper and a dash of Australian coastal landscape from the Boobialla are well balanced with lemon and lime citrus and a mouth-filling peppery warmth. The lingering finish is simultaneously warm and fresh. Four o’clock G&Ts, please.

QUATTRO JUNIPER GIN
Welcome to the fourth dimension of gin time, where the hands always point to Quattro o’clock. A quartet of junipers, headed by Australian wild juniper, extracted across four tailored methods. Subtle support from Riverland citrus and aromatics (all quartered, natch). Juniper buffs, this one’s four you.
Our Master Distiller extracts the distinct characters of four junipers across four production processes: Bulgarian blue juniper, Australian wild juniper, Macedonian wild blue juniper, and Bulgarian red juniper. They mingle with fresh botanicals for gentle aroma and flavour.

Her work seeks to explore human experiences in order to connect with the viewer who can take away their own meaning from her compositions depending on their own predispositions.
Artist label explanation from Lucinda Penn:
The four sides of 23rd St Distillery’s iconic distilling tower inspired the ‘Quattro’ idea which is now embodied by the four different types of juniper sourced from Australia and Europe. To do the uniqueness of this spirit justice, I wanted to tell the story of the gin through a visual narrative. The striking colour palette stems from the unique Bulgarian Red Juniper which stands out in the line of four dried juniper berries. The native coastal Boobialla is the light purple fruit. The additional traditional darker junipers are from Bulgaria and Macedonia. There are repeating themes of four cocktails, ice cubes, hands, diamond stars and four sides of the iconic distilling tower at the Renmark distillery. Amongst searching for these quattro’s you will also find citrus, distilling equipment, juniper flowers, and roads to Renmark as part of the unique distilling process.
