Barrel Aged No. 8 Dry Gin

IN GOOD TIME

Sold out

 

41.4% ABV - 500ml Signature Ceramic bottle

Born of the union of our No. 8 Dry Gin and vintage Hunter Valley fortified casks, this new era barrel aged gin dances delicately from modern Australian gin through to fortified elegance. Autumn hues accentuate its vibrant colour, while its nose and palate journey from juniper origins through raspberry and candied apple, onto a sherry finish. Best savoured over ice or with elderflower tonic.

BOTANICALS

Juniper, coriander, angelica root, cardamon, apple, raspberry, chamomile and cinnamon.

MATURATION

Matured for six weeks in ex-Hunter Valley fortified wine barrels (European Oak).

Influenced by abstract

A VERY SPECIAL COLLABORATION WITH PRUDENCE DEMARCHI

Inspired by the beautiful acrylic artworks of local Newcastle artist Prudence DeMarchi and noticing a synergy between her abstract, organic forms and colours and our beautifully delicate Barrel Aged Gins, a natural partnershipp was born.

We commissioned works by Prudence to reflect the unique colours of our gins imparted by Hunter Valley ex-fortified wine barrels.

The result was 5 beautifully unique works (hand framed by her talented husband), from which we designed the label sets for our limited release Barrel Aged Gins. To emphasise the texture and colour of Prudence's works, we decided to keep the artwork at it's original size on the label - it's so close you can see the gentle weave of the canvas.
