Never Never Fancy Fruit Cup - 50cl - 27% ABV
Never Never are disruptors! Late comers to the Gin scene, the Australian dream team burst into the room promising to kick off a juniper revolution. So far, so good – the young trio behind the distillery, George Georgiadis, Sean Baxter and Tim Boast, have put their money where their mouths are, launching with their Triple Juniper Gin, and making liquid magic from there on out.
The Fancy Fruit Cup is a contemporary Australian version of the much-enjoyed fruit cup and made in collaboration with Marionette Liqueur, an incredible producer of Australian liqueurs.
The liquid inside is based on their Triple Juniper Gin giving it a juniper backbone with Marionette’s barrel-aged Orange Curaçao (a blend of navel, Seville and blood oranges), Australian and exotic spices, and Earl Grey tea for tannin structure – to create a uniquely Australian aperitif.
Nose – Complex citrus mingles with tea, fragrant pine and wooded spice.
Palate – Sweet initially, then dry, with bergamot, orange rind, ginger root, cinnamon and juniper lingering.
Finish – Aperitif in nature, the addition of sweet curacao offers initial viscosity before along, extended finish of tea tannin and spice.
