Hartshorn Sheep Whey Gin
Words from Ryan Hartshorn (Head Distiller)
Besides the Juniper, my aim with this Gin was to only use Tasmanian native botanical’s. I discovered some very impressive native berries, leaves and seeds however they could only be wild harvested which meant I could not get enough quantity to make it practical enough for an ongoing production. I have still been able to use some Tasmanian native botanicals however I have now broadened the list to only Australian native botanical’s (plus the Juniper). The use of 6 Native Australian botanical’s with 3 of them never used before in any other Gin is found in this Gin.
All of the botanical’s are vapor infused which is a technique not used too often with Australian Gins. Vapor infusion (as opposed to steeped) will give the Gin a much more delicate and subtle bouquet. The Gin was designed to have a Beautiful smell. There will be delicate petal and citrus aromas with a hint of freshly cut hay.
