Prohibition Shiraz Barrel Gin (500ml)
South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$99. 99 Bottle
An aged Gin that references the barrels and blood spilt back in the days of prohibition. This project has been quietly maturing since co-founders Adam Carpenter and Wes Heddles opened at the company’s Gilbert St distillery. They had x Bourbon barrels that had recently being emptied of Barossa Shiraz, re-coopered into a smaller format then re-charred to restore their toasty character. The resulting gin is a big, bold, barrel strength style retaining a gentle shiraz note along with a rich oaked rye back note. Following the trade launch, Carpenter commented, "everyone loved the flavour, the complexity and how different it is to anything else out there, it’s not like any other shiraz gin as there’s no fruit contact, but it’s not your average barrel aged either.” Recommended with soda, in a classic Negroni, gin Old Fashioned or Boulevardier. 60% Alc./Vol.
