Hippocampus Dry Gin (700ml)

Melbourne, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$79. 99 Bottle
$959.88 Dozen
ABV: 41.5%
Originally from the West Perth based Hippocampus Distillery (launched in 2015), but now based in Melbourne and distilled by Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers and made in small batches, with 10 undisclosed botanicals in the mix, macerated overnight then distilled in a copper pot still.

Tasting note: [Batch 9 tasted] Crystal clear. Spicy and fresh aromas of juniper, cardamom and cinnamon in the first pass with air contact emphasising lemon gelato, mineral and mandarine peel. Quite concentrated for the ABV with a lean, peppery juniper entry, followed by flavours of coriander seed, citrus peel and a warming spirit finish. Aftertaste of white pepper and juniper shows excellent staying power. 41.5% Alc./Vol.
