Distillery: Balcombe Distillery
Strength: 41% ABV
Locality: Melbourne, VIC
Description: Balcombe is a true small batch dry gin inspired by the flavours of our home on the Mornington Peninsula.
In the same way our Garagiste Wines taste of where they are grown we have crafted Balcombe to have a true sense of place. Our gin is deliberately cloudy as we choose not to fine or filter. This adds the extra texture and interest we were after.
Balcombe is composed from 20 different botanicals and contains ingredients unique to Balcombe like foraged Samphire, Saltbush, Kelp, Wild Fennel, and Wild Fennel Pollen from the Mornington Peninsula to give a true coastal flavour.
We have also included Java Long Pepper, Blood Orange, Lemon Verbena, two types of Coriander and Ginger for complexity. Of course there is plenty of Juniper to balance all of those big coastal flavours.
