Backwoods High Country Gin 43% 500ml
$69.00
While our whiskies aim to transport you to the backwoods of Yackandandah, our gin invites you to take a walk in the Victorian High Country. To create this gin we apply two distillation methods. We macerate and boil the traditional botanicals while using the vapour-infused method for the Australian botanicals. This helps to balance a traditional gin base with the intensity of local botanical flavours. This unique Australian gin was recently recognised on the world stage, receiving a silver medal at the prestigious London Spirits Competition 2021. We serve it with a dry tonic or soda, a sprig of rosemary and a sprinkle of juniper berries. We'd love to hear how you enjoy it too!Traditional Botanicals:Juniper, coriander, cardamom, angelica root, orris rootAustralian Botanicals:Pepper berry, strawberry gum, peppermint gum, wattle seed, lemon myrtle

Backwoods Wild Rye 42% 500ml | Whiskey | Shop online at Spirits of France
Backwoods Wild Rye 42% 500ml
$87.00
A Heritage Ryecorn is the chief ingredient in this Wild Rye. It delivers an earthy, fresh rye bread aroma, toasty/biscuit like sweetness and a classic dry, spicy finish. Their mash bill also includes barley (for sweetness) and wheat (for nuttiness). And finally, adding a small amount of chocolate malt. You will notice this on the finish, as it lingers on the pallet, urging your next sip. After fermenting with a selection of speciality yeasts, they finish the process with the lid open. This allows for a secondary fermentation as the mash is infected with local airborne yeasts, particular only to Backwoods. The wash is distilled twice in a custom-designed copper pot still, and a very tight cut is made to ensure that only the gentlest portion of the hearts is taken. What remains is right here in this bottle. A spirit that is rich in spice and sweetness. Handcrafted from grain to glass. Backwoods Distilling Co. source all of our grain exclusively from expert maltsters, Voyager Craft Malt in the Riverina region. Tasting Notes: Aromatic and doughy on the nose, with a earthy mouthfeel of hazelnuts and fresh toasted bread followed by a long nutty finish with moderate pepper spice. Recent Awards: Bronze Medal, 2019 (Royal Australian Spirit Awards)
