You’re trying to be nonchalant with your sophisticated botanical gin but all the while tiny explosions of Riverland sunshine tickle your palate. It’s the underlying citrus from fresh local mandarin and lime that makes Twenty Third Street gin a particularly jovial drop.
23rd Street's distiller individually infuses ten botanicals including traditional juniper and coriander, complemented by zesty local citrus. Astute blending is key, creating a layered palate and full-bodied mouthfeel.
Aromas are led by juniper, Riverland mandarin and coriander, with hints of spices. On the palate, juniper is closely followed by a mandarin middle and fresh lime on the back palate. Spices support with softness and complexity. Enjoy neat, as the star of a cocktail or mixed with tonic or soda and garnished with citrus.

The beauty of Bloody Shiraz Gin being a product of vintage means that it will never be the same. The 2017 release has an incredibly vibrant ruby colour, which turns iridescent pink when mixed with tonic or soda. Aromatically the gin has fresh pine needles and incredible spice, and a clear peppery, dense raspberry character.
The palate is lovely and sweet, with long juniper and spice characters to finish. This release is slightly lighter in colour than last year's, due to a cool vintage in the Yarra Valley with a moderate ripening period.

Four Pillars Distillery wanted to create a gin to represent their idea of modern Australia: classic, clean, spiced to perfection and lifted with great citrus.
Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin sings on the rocks and holds its own with the best mixers on the market. And that’s just modern Australia, isn’t it? Definitive, iconic, yet friendly and exceptionally diverse.
Their starting point is the Yarra Valley’s clean, bright water, among the very best in the world - triple distilled for clarity and purity.
They crafted a Rare Dry Gin to deliver the best botanical notes from all around the world. It captures the essence of contemporary Australia’s heritage in Europe and Asia.
European juniper berries, spices from South East Asia through to the Middle East. To that they added two native Australian botanicals, lemon myrtle and Tasmanian pepperberry.
Cinnamon and star anise add rich fruitcake tones, the pepperberry leaf provides warmth rather than heat, and the lemon myrtle is a fragrant alternative to lemon peel.
Finally, they use whole organic oranges that add a highly aromatic character, a fresh Mediterranean touch that supports the spicier botanicals like cardamom.
Each of these carefully selected elements (and a whole lot of love) are distilled together in their magnificent German-made copper pot still, Wilma, until all impurities are removed.
The spirit comes out at a fierce 93% ABV before we cut it to bottle strength. And safe to say, it's proved to be a winning formula so far.
In 2014, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition drew a massive 1474 entries from across the globe, making it the biggest year to date, and one that included their very own Rare Dry Gin in its debut on the world stage.
And guess what? They took Double Gold at this most prestigious spirit competition, one of nine double gold medals within a gin category of 92 entries.
Stu was tempted to leave the world of competition on a high note: “We are one for one. This is the first competition we’ve entered, domestic and abroad. We might just retire from entering them now with a perfect record.”
Thankfully they didn’t, because Four Pillars received Double Gold again two years later at the 2016 San Fran WSC. And then backed it up with Gold in the UK's Global Gin Masters that year. Clearly Cam’s extensive research and experimentation has paid off.

KIS O'Gin is hand crafted in the same unique way as the Wild Gin, highlighting Juniper, Coriander and Angelica Root in a contemporary London Style.

Savoury and dry with a burst of orange. A nose which recalls beach dunes on a hot sumer day.

This is the first of the Dark Series releases. Our Southern Strength Gin is a beast of a gin. It contains not only the intense juniper concentration of the Triple Juniper Style but also a heavier alcoholic content sitting at 54%abv. We have also increased the botanical weight to add even more mouth-feel and character and to balance the sheer flavour intensity that juniper at this strength creates. This gin is the very first of our experimental Dark Series, with each label a limited release.
Nose: Intense and immediate citrus character. Dark resinous pine mingling with wood-spice and pepper.
Palate: Oily and intense, balanced despite the high alcoholic content. The juniper is still the most prominent feature however the earthiness has been dialled up with angelica and orris root clearly major contributors to this character. Pepperberry and cinnamon announce themselves as the gin dries across the back palate. Lemon oils linger on the lips and palate.
Finish: The finish is long and extended, aided by the alcoholic content. The resinous finish found in the Triple Juniper is heightened and developed through the addition of a light menthol character from the Tasmanian pepperberry.

This gin is a throw back to the times when gin had juniper and lashings of it. The juniper is treated in three separate ways, partially steeped, partially in the pot and partially in the vapour, in carefully selected balance. Despite this obsession with juniper, it is still a force that needs to be managed. A carefully selected bouquet of botanicals honours the brilliance of the juniper by complementing it, rather than overpowering it.
A heaviness of botanical concentration means that mild cloudiness is inevitable when the gin is chilled or diluted. This cloudiness is an indication of the heaviness of botanical character that is left in
Nose: Pine needle, brushed rosemary, lemon oil, earthy root vegetable extending into fragrant pepper.
Palate: Immediately fragrant with a bright citrus character up front. Oily and intense, the juniper is prominent, supported by the earthy undertones of angelica and orris root and extended by the addition of wooded spices and pepper.
Finish: Long and complex with a rich creaminess that dries out almost immediately. There is a changing dynamic of juniper, first bright and fragrant that develops into an earthy more resinous finish. The length is long and luxurious.

Our Distilling Process
Patient Wolf is distilled in small batches in our custom built 230L Müller copper still. It’s one-of-akind and was made by hand in Germany. Their botanicals are steeped overnight and include: juniper berries, coriander seeds, orris root, angelica root, cardamom, cubeb pepper, and tonka beans. While fresh ruby grapefruit, Valencia oranges and native aniseed myrtle are vapour infused in a botanical basket. The most unusual botanical we use are tonka beans from South America, which complexity and texture.
A strong nose of bright citrus quickly makes way for a bold, earthy and floral bouquet. On the palate, orris commands whilst coriander seed tingles warmly and finally finishes with hints of peppercorn spice and fresh juniper
