Inspired by a special conference on the origins of Gin, Matthew and Paul from the Hunter Valley Distillery together created a unique twist on an original style of gin. Incorporating lemon myrtle and Szechuan spice they bring the taste delight that is Jail House Gin.
Jail House Gin has a lovely aroma of Juniper berries and citrus notes. Upon tasting spicy flavours fill the mouth, tempered with the juniper and citrus to create a well-balanced tasting gin. Enjoy Jail House Gin neat, or in a martini with cucumber. Jail House Gin is prepared at the traditional 45% alc/vol.
Best for: The Perfect G&T, with a subtle spice difference!
Made by the Hunter Valley Distillery in New South Wales. A small distillery in a well-known wine producing region, they insist on using organic ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible using traditional copper pot stills and methods.
"There was a lot happening in beer, and a bucket load of wine being produced... we wanted to do something different. And just to be more different, we opted to shake it up by going organic"
- Matt, Head Distiller
