"A TACTILE AND ENGAGING GIN
Celebrating 50 years of the Australian National Botanic Gardens with this native botanical inspired gin with ingredients foraged from the Gardens in Canberra."
Part of the profits of this gin help support native plant conservationactivities by the Australian Botanic Gardens.
The botanical gala starts with the banksia flower giving a honey sweet nectar aroma, like a gentle floral bush smell, the aroma continues with the white aspen and the yam daisy releasing that extra bit of tropical. This is offset by the sharpness of the plum pine, and the citrus of the finger lime. The pepperberries, the grey myrtle and the rainforest aniseed continue the citrus and also add a sweet profile with just the right amount of spiciness and some more complex flavours. Bringing that extra fruitiness, the rubus is the cherry on the cake - or the berry on the gin! The encounter is soft on the tongue and mellow with a mild sweetness, like pear flesh, from wonderful native flowers.
