40% ABV / 4x50mL
Situated on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, a destination for premium local produce, Bass & Flinders Distillery is the brainchild of two locals who noticed a prevalence of small wineries in the region but no distilleries. Established in 2009, at the distillery’s core is a 300 litre copper Alembic style still which doubles as the distillery’s logo. All their gins are made from scratch - local wine is distilled into grape spirit and subsequently re-distilled with botanicals. A time consuming but worthwhile affair!
We're incredibly chuffed to be one of very few stockists of this 4-pack gin tasting set. It contains samples of some vastly different gin flavours and highlights the team's breadth of distilling know-how. Inside, you'll find a 50ml mini bottle of the following four gins:
Soft & Smooth Gin
Designed to be a sipping gin, to be served neat. Lightly chilled or on a big hunk of ice - that bit is up to you. It's kind of like a gin and tonic... without the tonic.
A navy strength gin this is not. Instead, what this is: A bold savoury gin, made from locally foraged kelp, samphire and coastal saltbush. Perfect for a Martini and well suited to being 'dirtied up' with some olives.
This is the one for a G&T. Featuring botanicals like vanilla, rose petals, fresh lavender and elderflower, mandarin peel. A big floral nose. Pair with elderflower tonic and garnish with rose petals.
The distillery's flagship pink gin. No, there are no artificial colours, flavours, added sugar or sweeteners. It tastes like gin, because it is gin. The blushing tones are thanks to locally grown cherries and raspberries. Authentically mouth watering.
