What is a Gin? thats the question we love, a gin can be anything it wants to be, a gin is an expression of the well rounded ingredients that wen into it, it is an essence of its origins, in can be added to or taken away. gin can evolve and change over time just like a fine wine does in the bottl. this is what we express in our gins
Our 1875 signature Australian gin is an expression of the Wild River terrain and the land we walk.
1875 Australian gin is distilled on our small stainless steel & copper pot still designed for maximum copper contact, creating a smooth spirit . We use our very own base spirit that that contributes to the flavor of the gin and has an extremely smooth mouth feel.
On the nose first impressions of the 1875 Australian gin is of a fresh forest floor with earthy aromas of sweet quandong berries floating through. As the gin breathes subtle freshness and zesty aromas of lemon myrtle then combine with the cardamom, Australian pepper berry and cinnamon lifting the gin to another level. It mellows out with the sweetness of the vanilla bean softening the finish with hints of star anise and citrus.
On the palate our 1875 Australian gin leads in with the combined sweetness of vanilla bean and quondong melding together with the juniper and cardamom. The heat from the peppercorns marries with the lemon myrtle, and the spice from the coriander seeds and cinnamon dance on the palate. It finishes with subtle flavors of star anise, pepper and citrus leaving you wanting more!
