LIMITED EDITION VIOLET GIN

What’s your whim? Say it with Gin. Our Violet Gin is the mood ring of beverages. Transform the broody blues of Butterfly Pea flower to ultraviolet with tonic. A bouquet of heady Australian native botanicals including lemon myrtle, finger lime and pepper berry abounds. Express your spirit.

Method

Pure, smooth Australian sugarcane spirit is distilled with traditional juniper and Australian native botanicals lemon myrtle, cinnamon myrtle, pepper berry, finger lime and wattle seed. Butterfly pea are steeped in the liquid for 18 hours to bestow their natural blue tint. This is sensitive to pH, and transforms to delicate violet with added acidity such as tonic or lemon.

Tasting Note

Distinctively Australian, artfully balanced. Fresh juniper, pine and lively citrus aromas precede a spicy warmth. On the palate, layers of intriguing flavour unfold, from familiar juniper to juicy finger lime, mellow wattle seed and lingering zest and peppery spice.
