From the bartender’s corner: A Tasmanian gin!
Ever since I finished the “Great Gin Experiment” (some 42 gins from 15 different countries), I have mostly been staying out of the gin scene. Recently Matt Tebbe – my friend of 12 years or so – brought me a gin bottle from Tasmania. I opened it this evening.
Simply great gin!
The lavender notes are very soothing to the nose and the juniper leaves a fairly good effect on the palate. I used Fever Tree tonic water and used more ice than normal.
I could not find too much literature on this gin. In fact, I could not even locate the distillery’s website thru multiple Google searches. The only thing the bottle mentions is it uses copper stills for distilling. (which is fairly standard).
Thank you Matt! This was a great throwback to the years when I was experimenting with gin a lot!
