 The Naked Gunner almost has an Australian bush, or crisp, clean flavour.  With top notes of resinous piney juniper with a hint of eucalyptus, and spicy citrus base notes, no matter what tonic you use, the flavour of the gin is never lost.  

Simon Brooke Taylor - Hurdle Creek Distillery

We built on Saltie's gin base with tamarind, lemongrass, kaffir lime and Australian lime and lemon myrtle – it has connotations of pine-lime Splice – and nuances and notes including native peppers.

Natalie Fryer - Able Gin Co

For the Northern Territory I selected a sherry cask with nutty, fruit, caramel, and tangerine tasting notes, and a mineral finish almost like sea rocks and sea stones.  It is smooth, mature, full bodied and delicious!
