Today it’s World Gin Day and we’re super excited to highlight the South Australian distilleries that put our state on the map!
Crafted by the Imperial Measures team: Chris Jones, David Danby, and Ty Swan. Friends, colleagues and just a bunch of old folk who know and have experienced their liquor (the good and the bad), this trio have worked together for many years and have finally created the perfect recipe. Bottled at Applewood Distillery, Adelaide Hills, Ounce Gin is a careful mix of orange, vanilla and cardamom flavours.
The new liquor has already hit the streets and is being served at Mr Goodbar, Udaberri and the Robin Hood Hotel.
You may have heard of Settlers Gin owners, Rowland and Shelley Short, from their first venture Maximus Wines — and now they’ve branched out into small-batch artisan gin. There’s four different gins to choose from, with one being a sloe gin. You can get a taste of this SA spirit at their McLaren Vale Maximus Wines cellar door or in the CBD at The Collins Bar.
It boasts Australia’s first organic-certified gin and is also triple distilled with native and traditional botanicals — yum!
Pick up a bottle for World Gin Day at one of their many SA stockists — East End Cellars, Fassina Liquor, Parade Cellars and The Organik Store and Cafe, to just list off a few.
Get your taste of Kangaroo Island with KIS’ four gin options. From their Wild Gin to O Gin or Tom Aged Gin to Whisky Barrel Gin — there’s bound to be something to everyone!
We love their use of Australian botanticals and other locally sourced ingredients to encapsulate their motto of ‘quality over quantity’.
Well worth the trip over to KI to get your taste of KIS gin! Otherwise head to the CDB’s local gin bar, Howling Owl.
