Seppeltsfield Road Barossa Dry 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 began to delve in other directions.
This is the most normal of the tribe for sure, with juniper and coriander putting in a fine performance. Locally grown pink peppercorns add in a lively, dusky spice, though overall its very clean and pure. Fans of classic with a twist are sure to love this.To serve: Classic tonic and a spritz of lemon.
