Sweden’s Hernö and Australia’s Four Pillars have teamed up for the third release in the ‘Interpretations’ series, and the result is Botany Bay! Named after the place where Swedish botanist Dr. Daniel Solander landed in Australia, Botany Bay combines botanicals from both distillery’s homelands. From Sweden you get lingonberry and meadowsweet, while from Australia comes wattleseed, Tasmanian pepper berry and lemon myrtle. The balance of this gin manages the signature of both distilleries without either dominating, which speaks to true collaboration.
gin is enjoyably creamy, with layers of lemon cheesecake, almond, drying juniper warmth, clean berry sweetness and a hint of blackberry leaf.
ABV – 43%
