Applewood Distillery - Limoncello

Applewood Distillery take our Limoncello perhaps a tad seriously. Made from a safely guarded recipe - two different types of lemons from South Australia's oldest citrus plantation in Lennane Orchards, Montacute Valley, Adelaide Hills. This citrus orchard is believed to be planted 150 years ago. 

Why is Applewood's Limoncello important? The lemons are what one might call "UGLY". Yes, they are different sizes and kind of weird looking. Unfortunately, that meant that supermarkets did not want to buy them. So, after trying to sell these ugly little lemons for years, the growers decided to remove the 150 year old trees. To help preserve this historic orchard, Applewood Distillery put up our hands and promised to buy all whole crop to make our delicious Limoncello. 

It is a labour of love. Literally! We spend 12 hours hand peeling lemons from the orchard to produce this delicious drop. In fact, they have a family ritual of taking turns to peel a couple of buckets a day. Everyone chips in! 

We think all lemons are beautiful and hope you do too. Saluti!

Being winemakers, we're two people incredibly passionate about the soil and produce we have in Australia. It's our contention to showcase products to the rest of the world that embrace Australian native ingredients and pay homage to the custodianship of the indigenous people who maintained the land for thousands of years. 

It's this passion that has driven us to start two wine labels, one that protects our farmers and another that protects our future. We've since taken these concepts and with our distillery, applewood - catapulted it into the horticultural realm - studying indigenous produce, it's beneficial effects on our land and the stories it can tell through incredible colours, flavours, and textures. 

We seek Australian identity in the products we craft and the services we offer. We seek ways to communicate this with an entirely new demographic. 
Our hope is that these Australian stories can one-day be heard on a global scale.

23rd St - Vodka

23rd Street Distillery - Riverland Rose Vodka

Twenty three thousand rose petals plucked under moonlight, trod by centaurs’ hooves and small-batch infused in virgin vodka. Strained through unicorn tail hair and bottled directly for your pleasure. Aromas of freshly trimmed lawn herald a nuanced, warm palate. Limited edition, obviously.

METHOD

The sweet, yet bold nosed and Valentine-red ‘Mr Lincoln’ petals, along with a smattering of other mixed blooms are gathered, local and dewy-fresh, at the iconic Rustons Roses, Riverland. Macerated over time in cane based vodka, the petals offered up their heavenly essences which have been small-copper-pot distilled to otherworldly purity. The rosy tint is naturally enhanced with the merest pinch of organic hibiscus petal.

TASTING NOTES

The delicate pink blush of a cherub’s cheek. Aromas evoke a summer’s picnic on manicured lawns, hedonistic yet fresh. There’s nothing blousy, fusty or overblown here. Seductive true rose petal flavours hint at vanilla on the front palate, continuing with a rounded mouthfeel and warm finish.

Enjoy neat, chilled or lengthen with a splash of mineral water or tonic.
