Gin is an exotic blend of juniper berries, cassia, coriander, angelica root, citrus peel, summer savory and liquorice root.
Made at the height of vintage this artisan Shiraz gin melds the art of distillation with that of small batch winemaking. Carefully nurtured Organic McLaren Vale Shiraz from our family Warboys Vineyard was hand picked on 4th March 2022. These organic and biodynamically grown Shiraz vines were planted in the 1930’s and yield the most delicious ripe berries perfect for our first shiraz gin vintage. Half was steeped in gin for a week, the organic gin spirit extracting colour aroma and fruit sweetness. The other half was fermented following time honoured fortified wine techniques for three days until the fermentation was stopped by adding organic blind tiger gin, and then macerated for another 2 days. The 2 batches were pressed and blended to produce a unique delicious Organic Shiraz Gin. A perfect marriage of only organic gin and organic single vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz, nothing else added or needed.
The handpicked organic botanicals are distilled individually through a small pot still, creating distinctive elements that are drawn on to craft and blend Blind Tiger Organic Gin. Both the Juniper and Coriander are steeped in spirit for 24 hours before distillation to concentrate and enhance their flavours, whilst the sweet orange is vapour infused. The unique components are then blended with organic wheat spirit to create a fine elegant London Dry style of Organic Gin.
This unique and individualised method for making Gin allows the distiller to craft and control the flavours in a similar way a winemaker puts a wine blend together. A delicate balance of science and artistry with consistency of excellence in every batch.
