Single Barrel Release S31

Single Barrel Release S31

<p>S31 is our first ever single barrel release. Discovered as Cameron was tasting across all our barrels in 2019, it comes from a cask that had spent over 30 years ageing Australian Sherry before we filled it with Rare Dry Gin. The result is intense, complex and delicious. Strong pine needle aromas are balanced by dried fruit, cashew, chocolate and spice.</p>
$150 AUD
Orders limited to a maximum of 6

Our barrel-aged gins are made from a wonderful solera system, but this is one of the special ones. The barrel (originally from McWilliam’s in New South Wales) was set aside after Cameron noticed it had created a unique, complete gin.

Bottled in 2020 at cask strength, the palate is rich and warming, layered with spice and toasted nuts. S31 has already picked up a swag of medals, including Master at the Asian Gin Masters 2020 and Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020.

We age Rare Dry Gin in Sherry and Apera casks, adding sweetness to the botanical spice.
Keep your drinks simple and sippable to showcase the unique flavours of this super-limited gin.
We started barrel-ageing gin back in 2013, and our newest program uses Sherry and Apera casks to produce this rich and sweet Sherry Cask Gin.
Our barrel-aged gins
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!

Come learn all about the distilling process and maybe even make a bottle.

Immerse yourself in a masterclass at our Distillery in the Yarra Valley or our Laboratory in Sydney. We offer a number of classes suitable for individuals as well as groups.
