Two Accents Gin Clearance

When Australia hit peak gin several years ago, overwhelming competition meant more than a few brands failed to achieve sales momentum - even those whose gins stood out. It impacted producers at both ends of the passion scale. At the high end was Two Accents, kickstarted by an Aussie and a Brit: the ever-enthusiastic Adam Jacobs together with Laurie Bilby, who was making English sloe gin with her grandma at the age of seven. Batch-distilling in a traditional copper pot in McLaren Vale they debuted with the obligatory London Dry, then introduced a limited edition Navy Strength for high-octane cocktails. Shiraz from one hundred-year-old vines was added to the mix and the results were two novel takes on traditional Sloe - a Shiraz Gin and a Barrel-Aged Shiraz Gin. They all landed at premium prices, backed up by quality inside the bottle. The business has now closed and remaining stocks are being sacrificed to recover whatever's possible from the initial investment.
