Seppeltsfield Road Savoury All Sorts Gin - 50cl - 41.5% ABV
Based not far from Adelaide, South Australia, Seppeltsfield Road is a new distillery with a great story. Co-founders Nicole and Jon Durdin picked up a penchant for gin whilst on secondment to the UK in 2015. When they returned to Australia, they did so with the intention to build a brand new distillery.
Though they only originally planned for one, somewhere in the process they ended up with three recipes that were just too good to be ditched out. With a grape base the gins begin fruity, but with local ingredients like pink peppercorns and lavender at hand, they soon delve in other directions.
This is a verdant garden of a gin, with thyme, borage and marjoram taking the helm. It’s so incredibly herbal and green, steering the juniper in a decidedly savoury direction. Incredibly loud and waxy on the tongue, this is one for those who aren’t interested in all that sweet stuff.
To serve: This is calling out for some Med tonic and a sprig of rosemary.
