Brookies Byron Slow Gin

, , ,

Brookies Byron Slow Gin is a limited edition release from Cape Byron Distillery.

A traditional style of ‘sloe gin’ is made from sloe berries. The new Brookie’s drop takes a subtle shift away from this style and namesake by using Davidson plums instead, which are native to the Byron Bay and northern rivers region. From its distillery in the Byron Bay hinterland, the creation of the Brookies Byron Slow Gin is a long process – there is a six-month maturation period from when the plums are picked and the skins are torn. After that, it’s blended with Mount Warning spring water, then balanced with sugar (Davidson plums are quite tart), and the result is an impressive gin with rich, aged characteristics.

Tasting Notes: The bright and deep colour achieved is completely natural from the plums. The taste is aged and, in a very subtle way, has similarities to port, with notes of watermelon and rose. The Slow Gin is refreshing in style and form, and is best served neat or with an sliver of orange peel.

Crafted by Cape Byron Distillery, Byron Bay, NSW.
