Tiny Bear The Sailor Gin

, , ,

Tiny Bear The Sailor Gin packs a bit more gun powder into your cannon if you know what we mean!

Have you ever wondered what Navy strength actually means? And what’s it got to do with Gin?
Sit down and pour yourself a glass my friend and wonder no longer.
We enter the Royal British Navy, an organisation that liked their gin very boozy indeed. They found that if you mix a ‘Navy’ strength gin, around 57% or above with gunpowder [as you do when you’re stuck on a boat for months on end with very little entertainment] – it still ignites if it has enough alcohol in it. “Proof” it’s good, really.
Bit of food for thought while you enjoy this slow sipper.

Tasting notes: A bold driven Navy, with a powerful punch of Juniper, tart notes from full fresh oranges and spice from cardamom and clove. Best served as a slow sipper with a slice of orange and a clove. Is great in cocktails due to it powerful flavour profile.

Crafted by Tiny Bear Distillery, Knoxfield, VIC.

Tiny Bear The Sailor Gin is meticulously crafted by the Tiny Bear Distillery.

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.”
