Tiny Bear The Gypsy Gin

, , ,

Tiny Bear The Gypsy Gin and its origin is linked to the ancient Persian book of Kings – the Shahnameh – that tells of a time when the King demanded that India send him 10,000 musicians to entertain him. They did, and the King was so pleased that he gave each musician an ox, a donkey and a cart filled with wheat so they could wander the countryside, support themselves on the crop they grew and entertain the people of Persia.

Of course, these were musicians – a group of people famously incompetent at pretty much everything except music and trashing hotel rooms. So, it was to no one’s surprise when they returned to the King a year later, having eaten through their supplies.

The King, of course, was furious and expelled them to Europe. The Europeans assumed that they had migrated from Egypt and began to call them “Gypsies”, along with the usual persecution of outsiders which we’re all familiar with.

How true is this story? We have no idea.

What we do know is that the name of THE GYPSY brings a hint of exotic spices, a touch of the orient and a hint of magic. Just the thing to describe our latest blend of gin.

Tasting notes: A spice driven gin, with a pungent juniper base. Flavoured by four different peppers, as well as cardamom, clove and cumin. Fresh citrus notes added from lemon and lime, with a crisp finish from the added cucumber. A bold gin, which makes a great “Red Snapper”, or a “Dirty Martini”. Serve with any of Lemon, Lime, Cucumber, Capsicum, Fresh Ginger, Orange, Mandarin in a Gin and Tonic.

A message about “Our Story” from the Founders:

“In late 2016, Manda asked the the question, “If you could do anything, and money wasn’t an issue, what would you do?”

My answer “Open a distillery”.

It kind of just made sense. We always enjoyed the Melbourne Gin scene, with a love of everything craft.

From that moment on, we stopped looking for a house to live in, but rather a place to build a distillery.

In 2017, we settled on a place (it was being constructed), a name and an agreement to put it all on the line.

It took until June 2018 to get open and since that day we live by one motto. Try and make the gin better every day!

With the continued drive you find us here, early 2020, with a head full of ideas, a couple of bottles of liquor that we think are pretty good, a Distillery in outer South-East Melbourne and and the hope that we make it to 2021 with the dream still alive. The dream to make our own Gin, Whiskey and Liqueurs to a standard that makes us proud. We want to walk into some of Melbourne’s great Gin Venues see our product competing with the big boys. Yet at the same time, we want to make the best product without compromise.

We Pride ourselves on doing absolutely everything ourselves. We make our base spirit from a wine we make with Kale, Sugar, Water and Yeast. We turn this wine into Vodka by running it through our 6 Plate Australian Built copper column, and then turn this Vodka into our 3 core range Gin’s as well as a few experimental ideas.”
