ABV: 26%
A welcome (albeit limited) addition to the Brookies range, is this "Slow" gin, in the style of English sloe. The point of difference here is that Davidson Plums are used instead of sloe berries. Considered a bush delicacy, the plum is indigenous to the Byron region and is packed with vitamins and minerals.The plums are steeped in Brookie’s Gin for several months. The maceration is diluted to 26% ABV with Mount Warning spring water.

Tasting note: Brilliant copper. Attractive, medium dry aromas suggesting quince paste, plum jam and raisins over muted juniper and white pepper. A juicy-yet-dry, pleasantly tart, plum and red berry flavoured gin with trace pepper in the finish. Delicious Summer sipping, but would be even better at a higher ABV. Keep it simple with soda or just ice. 26% Alc./Vol.
