Adelaide Hills, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$89.99 Bottle
  • ABV 43%

Part four in Applewood’s themed series that matches a gin to each of the seven deadly sins. Being no strangers to bathtub-style Gin production this seemed the perfect project to stretch Applewood’s creativity....

A basic Gin recipe of Juniper, Adelaide Hills Saffron, Cinnamon, Star Anise, Clove, Chamomile, Wormwood, Licorice Root, Angelica Root and Orange Peel - and the creativity? They weren't going to bother distilling it... ”But then the real Sloth kicked in...we accidentally forgot about it (no joke). A week later, the resultant Gin was so incredibly intense and bitter - we were to scared to bottle it. One bright spark suggested we just see how it distills...and it filled the room with the most spicy, aromatic was a sight to behold. We really wanted this Gin to champion Juniper, so we macerated some more post-distillation...Then we accidentally forgot about it again! Sloth-strikes-back! Upon finding the golden-wonder of a Gin (courtesy of Juniper swimming in it for days)...we were utterly impressed by the distinctive aroma, mouthfeel and texture. Further - it made one of the most delicious G&Ts we've ever experienced!"

Tasting notes: Deep, weighty juniper to the nose; pine needles, warming pepper and chamomile with developing citrus peel and herbal freshness. Graceful feel to this, yet it still fills the mouth with big pepper, juniper and warming cough lozenge-like flavours. Powers on with great persistence. 43% Alc./Vol. Very limited stocks.
