Gin | 500ml | ABV 40% | Margaret River, Australia
Developed in collaboration with the Margaret River Hemp Co, this handcrafted and delicately smoked gin is made using locally grown organic hemp hearts. The smoking process adds a level of complexity and when blended with carefully selected botanicals, results in a truly contemporary gin.
Anchored by juniper, the creamy nutty hemp heart envelopes the tongue and lingers long after the smoke has disappeared. Other pronounced flavours include toasted sesame and sweet orange.
Best enjoyed: in a G&T with one part gin to two parts quality tonic. Garnish with grapefruit, chilli, and a bay leaf.
Awards won: Bronze at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards 2019 and Bronze at the Australian Gin Awards 2019
