Tasting NotesWe'd be crazy not to use the incredible calibre of cool climate fruit available to us in the Yarra Valley. So we steeped Yarra Valley Shiraz grapes in high proof Rare Dry Gin for eight weeks. The fruit was de-stemmed but kept mainly as whole berries, and the tanks were kept cold and stirred daily. After eight weeks we pressed the fruit before blending with more Rare Dry Gin.
The resultant gin is an incredibly rich, deep purple colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda. Aromatically is has fresh pine needles, citrus and spice, and a clear peppery, dense raspberry character. The palate is lovely and sweet with a long juniper and spice character on the finish.
