“I really thought I had an original

idea, alas, no. Saffron gin has been done before in France. I think the Brocken

Specter Summer Gin is the first Australian saffron gin; we use 100% Tasmanian

grown saffron and never add any colouring.

For the base we combine 16

aromatics including juniper, coriander seed, lemon myrtle, strawberry gum, star

anise and vanilla bean. This mix is added to a grape based spirit and left over

night. This spirit/aromatic base redistilled, after; at full strength we add

the saffron. After a few days the saffron stamens are completely white and

simply strained out. The gin is gluten free, vegan and unfiltered.

Try a summer gin with good tonic,

fresh chilies and thyme!”


Besides sheer superiority, these gins are also enhanced by the use of grape wine distilled spirit which gives a third dimension to the product against the neutral flatness of the competition. A Brocken Spectre can be a magnified shadow of an observer, typically surrounded by rainbow-like bands, thrown on to a bank of cloud in high mountain areas when the sun is low. Add a pinch of Tasmanian botanicals and you have a liquid, sombre antipodean romanticism.
