Brookies Byron Dry Gin

, ,

Brookies Byron Dry Gin is made in a custom hand-made copper pot-still in the heart of the Brook’s family macadamia farm in the Byron Bay hinterland. What sets the gin apart is that it showcases Australian native botanicals in a way that hasn’t been done before. This is achieved through a unique distillation method and the use of native botanicals from the rainforest. The Brook’s family have replanted over 40,000 rainforest trees for regeneration over the past 30 years.

Tasting Notes:

The spirit opens on a captivating combination of Citrus notes, led by Aniseed and Cinnamon Myrtle in harmony with a lively drift of Finger and Blood Limes. This awakens and stimulates the olfactory system which rejoices in the purity of their aromas. But be patient, this is just the start of an aromatic odyssey. Juniper berries pop like champagne bubbles lifting the senses to a place they have never been. With a little time and aeration Juniper and Coriander enter the scene bringing the depth and distinction that one expects from a high quality Gin. As the spirit evolves further, the taste receptors are going crazy with anticipation, but they will have to wait as White Aspen and Riberry join the party. Add a little Lily Pilly and Dorrigo Pepper leaf and now your getting there. It’s an incredible beguiling ground breaking aromatic exploration.”
