As we sat there, looking out at the fruit trees across the distillery lawn, the subtle aroma of herbs and spices drifted in from the garden and the question arose: would these flavours work in a gin? To our left was the library of books dedicated to detailed flavour explanations. To our right was the open doorway to taste and adventure. We chose exploration and set about scouring our surroundings. Figs, pomegranate, rosemary, lavender and lemon were the result of our foraging, and our distillation began. We knew our mission was complete when we tasted those light, bright floral notes and that hint of sweetness in our gin.

This gin is the culmination of Pete’s many years as a bartender in Perth. He’s a self-confessed ‘new-distiller’ but wanted to know if the garnish and flavour combinations he was used to seeing in drinks in bars would work as a gin. We think yes.
