Med Gin is the latest release in our Dark Series and in expression that promotes the fresh local produce found around our new home in McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
The Distillery sourced Somerton almonds from Taronga, Lloyd Brothers Kalamata olives and McMillian and Drew herbs which include lemon thyme, thyme, bay leaf and basil. Not to mentioned locally foraged Oleria Axillaris, known commonly as the coastal daisy bush.
All these ingredients are sourced from the local region and create a gin that is distinctly Mediterranean in both flavour and function.
A heady combination of sea spray, fresh herbs, kalamata olive/olive flesh and lightly dried florals. Reminisce of coastal breezes on a warm summer evening. Pine tree and cooking spice lingers in the background setting the stage for our most complex gin yet. Much like the local geology in McLaren Vale, this gin has layers! Creamy marzipan, citrus and olive oils creates a silky & luscious palate. This is balanced with a wave of mouthwatering saline from the olive brine and the considered inclusion of locally grown thyme, bay leaf and basil. While this profile leans towards a savoury expression, orange and foraged sea daisy lends a splash of freshness, complementing the dry finish.
