Meet The Distillers
Simon Brooke Taylor, Hurdle Creek Distillery
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.
Natalie Fryer, Able Gin Co.
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.
Matthew Cooper, Fannys Bay Distillery
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!
