Apothecary Gin (500ml)

Tasmania, AUSTRALIA
$69.99 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

'Killara' is the new project of Kristy Booth, formerly head distiller and general manager at her parent's business, "Lark Distillery". Kristy has eighteen years experience in the industry and has won numerous awards both nationally and internationally. “I’m not out there to take over the world. I’m just focused on quality” says Booth. The long term intention is to sell whisky, but as of 2017 Killara is marketing gin, as well as selling new make spirit to bottlers who will mature it to re-sell (in Australia, new-make needs at least two years in a barrel to be called whisky.)

Reportedly produced from a neutral cane base-spirit, the gin includes traditional botanicals like juniper, coriander and lemon. The remainder aren't disclosed.

Tasting note: [Batch 2 tasted] Beams from the glass with ideal clarity. Moderately fresh, muted notes of distant juniper, white pepper and lemon peel. Silky, with a light-to-medium body and hints of citrus; otherwise meek botanical input. Middle stage turns creamy, semi-sweet and attractively white rum-like (sponge cake and creamy soda). Ends gently warming, slightly limp / fleeting / lacklustre. 40% Alc./Vol.
