Just in time for winter we are proud to announce the arrival of our Hearts Afire Contemporary Australian Gin, a balanced savoury gin with a long warm and gentle spicy finish.
Brogan finds inspiration everywhere and this gin is no different. Looking to the perennial cold weather favourite mulled wine, Brogan wondered what a gin equivalent would be.
She contemplated what people expect to taste and the sort of sensations that we crave from this classic winter warmer. She looked into the flavour compounds and carefully selected different botanicals to match her gin base that would best bring out those familiar characters. Starting with small batches and tweaking as she goes, this labour of love is now ready for you all and its warmth is yours to enjoy.
Sweet orange peel, native strawberry gum and macerated lillypilli offers a gentle yet full-bodied sweet backbone which is warmed by the fragrant spicy notes of aniseed myrtle, cloves, nutmeg and cassia. Hot green cardamom and black peppercorn notes are carried through in the long nutty and coffee-like finish provided by the soft oils of native roasted wattleseed.
It officially launches this Saturday on World Gin Day and you can pre order now.
