Blue Mountains Grown Gin - Limited Edition
A collaboration between the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden and Garden Grown Gin makers Grown Spirits, this limited edition of 1,000 bottles has been crafted by Master Distiller, Philip Moore. Native to the Blue Mountains area of New South Wales, this gin features eucalyptus pulverulenta (more commonly known as ‘Baby Blue’) as its hero botanical – some say it’s this silver-leaved mountain gum that’s behind the famous blue haze of the mountains. And like the mountains themselves, it’s a fresh and cooling homage to this iconic Australian landmark. With much of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden destroyed by bushfires earlier this year, profits from this gin help support the Garden’s horticultural & science staff as they rebuild and restore this crucial botanical collection.
Appearance: Crystal clear with a flawless purity.
Nose: A beautifully complex marriage of eucalyptus pulverulenta and juniper. A fresh and lifted aroma balanced by the supporting cast of Valencia Orange, Liquorice Root and Angelica.
Palate: On entry, a very clean and richly textured juniper berry. Followed by the eucalyptus in the middle palate bringing a little spice and a gentle heat. The aftertaste is cooling and fresh, coming from an additional but subtle contribution of eucalyptus leaf.
