Changing Seasons Gin

Changing Seasons Gin

<p>For our third Distiller Series gin we took seasonal botanicals from Australia and Japan. The gin has bright aromas of pine needle, green citrus from yuzu and desert lime, and light green tea. Quandong and kinmokusei flowers add fruit flavour and the texture is driven by hinoki, red pine and dense juniper.</p>

For this Distiller Series gin we couldn’t go past our fellow IWSC Gin Producers of the Year at Kyoto Distillery. The idea of the seasons kept coming back to us.

We distilled with Alex Davies, Kyoto’s head distiller, in our Yarra Valley spring. We tested the gin in refreshing cocktails over the hot Australian summer, while Alex was keeping warm in the Japanese winter. And we released it in the Australian autumn, while the cherry blossoms bloomed in Japan.

We experimented with Japanese botanicals and flavours, which worked beautifully with Australian native varieties.

MEET WILMA
MEET WILMA
Wilma has a 450L capacity pot, a swans neck and a botanical basket (where we put our whole oranges).

Seven distinctive aroma plates in her column act to further refine the spirit which follows through to a condenser.

The gin comes out of Wilma at a breathtaking 93.5% alc/vol (187 proof) before we adjust it back to drinking strength, depending on what we’e making.

There’s a bunch of distillery-geek stuff about the levels of purity we can achieve with Wilma’s seven plate column, but when Cam starts talking about it he sounds a bit too ‘Walter White’, so we’ll just say this… the resulting gin has an incredible purity and smoothness for such a high alcohol content. It’s definitely not rocket fuel!
