Edition No.12 - Cream Gin

Edition No.12 - Cream Gin

Cream gin goes back to the victorian gin palaces, modern iterations use cold distillation or lactose to create this classic gin style. At OY we wanted to create as authentic a version as possible so just like those gins of old, after distillation we mixed our gin with cream and threw it into a barrel for a week. This style of gin just doesn't get made in it's traditional form, so we're bringing it back. Tim knows of only three modern distilleries that have made a cream gin, so odds are, there's only been a handful released - and none in Australia that we can ascertain.

Fun Fact:
This was the most labour-intensive of the JSoc gins because we chose to do this in the traditional way. The phrase “we are never making a cream gin like this again” was definitely heard in production.

Signature song:
"Cream" by Prince
