Teddy & The Fox Bellarine Gin (700ml)

Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$92. 99
$1115.88 Dozen
ABV: 42%
This new craft distillery based on the Bellarine Peninsula is named after the founder's beloved dog, Teddy, who enjoys chasing foxes off the property. The main botanicals are juniper, orange, lemon myrtle, coriander, star anise and orris root.

Tasting note: Bright citrus aromas over light juniper and complexing dried herbs. Medium bodied, with lots of ripe lemon (lemonade icy poles / fruit tingle), low-key juniper, coriander and moderate pepper warmth. An easy going citrus-led stye for Summer cocktails. 42% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... On the nose the orange aromas abound with sherberty lemon myrtle in the background. To taste the orange and juniper are at the fore before more citrus zest notes from the coriander and lemon myrtle evolve. There is a good dose of warmth and spice on the lengthy finish. It’s well-balanced, with a great mouthfeel....Lorelle’s uses fractional distillation (all the botanicals are distilled separately before being blended together) and grape based spirit ( Melbourne Gin company also uses this base) which gives a great mouth feel and a super neutral canvas that allows the botanicals to shine.... It works well in a gin and tonic garnished with rosemary – fennel would also work. Try it with soda as this would open out the flavours even more.
