    Macedon, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
    $99. 99 Bottle

    ABV: 58%
    Big Tree Distillery was established by a gin-loving husband and wife team devoted to bringing you truly home-grown spirits from the Macedon Ranges in Victoria. Three gins are on offer - 'Seasonal', 'Elegant Dry' and a Navy Strength edition named 'Claude'. All are created using (mostly) local ingredients and fresh rainwater from the farm. Where possible the team pick and forage some of the more interesting botanicals as locally as possible with the help of a gin loving botantist. Bottled at high ABV, Claude includes a touch of Southern Sassafras foraged from the Victorian mountains.

    Tasting note: [Batch 2] Super-dense and juniper-heavy on the nose; pine forest floor, orris and liquorice root as well as hints of grapefruit and dried herbs. Never lets up. Huge yet impeccably balanced in an intense citrus / juniper / herbal and liquorice accented attack with Fisherman's Friend rounding off a cascade of profound ginny flavours. Ends oily, peppery, prolonged. Tremendous stuff. 58% Alc./Vol.
